What is Organic Intelligence?

Organic Intelligence® is a psychobiological clinical approach based in complex systems theory, developed by Steve Hoskinson, MA, MAT, a leader in the Somatic Psychology Field. From a systems perspective, the OI clinical protocol suggests that what’s wrong with therapy is the focus on whats wrong — including the focus on trauma. OI teaches how healing happens from the nervous system up and makes it possible to imagine freedom from suffering. Freedom from suffering becomes freedom for living an authentic, vibrant life in the here-and-now.
