Zea Leguizamon

Colombian Zea Leguizamon is a movement specialist. She facilitates change making to improve relationship for couples, and groups blending Process Oriented Psychology and Biodanza. Prior she served cross–cultural connections through advocacy in anti–violence community organizations for over 15 years. Her focuses were on domestic, familial, sexual assault, trafficking and hate crime.

Zea has culminated 8 years of research in her field of Social Somatics. An emerging field initiated in ‘98 by Hanlon–Johnson, Grand, Eddy and others. This field aims to improve interpersonal cross–cultural relations by employing embodiment explorations of our soma, meaning the body. Zea provides her efforts to expand the field, by bringing in third and fourth world voices and embodied experiences. Her organization’s Co–Motion Coop, Embody Deep Democracy, and the Social Somatics Institute bring the original voice, movement, into words and healing action for the world. These organizations forward the works of transformative change practices by and for cultural resurrection, cultural protection and cross–cultural sharing of our precious earth and cosmos.

In 1976, and today, Colombia is under attack from inside and outside her borders as a means to gain resources. Then a child coded as Z.E.A. 19742343, Zea was selected off the streets of Bogota by a Christian orphanage to live as a North American Adoptee. This pattern of transnational trafficking post war orphaned children made it“s way across Vietnam, Romania, and many others. Regardless of age, this is just one voice of the Diaspora Body Narrative. A narrative too early for a child to name, in their youth. But one affecting orientation to place, not unlike other countries touched by man made or natural disaster. It is this hope for believing in reconnection beyond space and time that this work is a place of birth — for her, for others.
