What is clay body mapping?

Introducing the Clay Embodiment Research Method…

This short pre-recorded Pecha Kucha (meaning “little chat” in Japanese) provides a summation of Clay Embodiment Research Method (i.e., clay body mapping and photography) which I designed for our reproductive health research with young women who had been trafficked into the sex industry in Nepal. That’s 3 minutes, 20 seconds per slide, 9 slides. Listen with your headphones, look with your eyes, feel with your heart. Many thanks to Sabrina Chettri, my research assistant, for enabling me to showcase her beautiful clay body mapping work in Nepal for the first time…

*Note: the Clay Embodiment Research Method requires specialised training on body mapping and the therapeutic use of clay because of trauma elicitation and is the subject of 2022 book.
