We remember two authors in our book: 
    
Jill Hayes dedicated her research to a cross-dialogue between Somatic Movement Education and Dance Therapy. She integrated both in community arts-based and clinical settings. Jill’s worked was deeply rooted in humanistic research approaches and also deep ecology.  
 
Suzanne River uniquely developed a cross-dialogue between Somatic Movement Dance Education and Therapy and her Native American heritage. She offered her work extensively within the community, blending a fresh and integral approach to indigenous cultural heritage with Western Somatics.
