Event details

We have invited four members of the Somatic Practice and Chronic Pain Network to talk online about their research and to be in an open conversation about the intersections between science, art, somatics, the human body, and pain. We welcome Emma Meehan, Anna Macdonald, Aline Nogueira Haas and Bernie Carter.


Pain is “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with, or resembling that associated with, actual or potential tissue damage”. Whereas acute pain is akin to a corporeal alarm, long-term, persistent or chronic pain may not serve any particular purpose.

In English, we say that someone either has pain or is in pain. The preposition in is telling, as if sometimes our bodies are immersed in pain, or surrounded by it.

Yet pain is never just in the body or just in the mind and such ambiguity makes a conversation about somatics and chronic pain an ideal starting point for C-DaRE invites… Series 2: The body and science.

Please note that this event will be recorded, you are welcome to have your camera on or off during.
