Johan Planefeldt is a somatic researcher and film director. His interest in the body-mind complex began in 1999 as he discovered the possibility to enter into deep states of trance.

Since then he has studied and practiced trance work from different cultures and traditions. In 2011 he discovered the love for contact improvisation which led him to long embodiment research with practices like Authentic movement, butoh, Body-Mind Centering, Holotropic breathwork & Vipassana meditation.

The last years of training have been dedicated to trauma-informed somatic therapy like Somatic Experiencing, NARM & ACT. He is regularly facilitating trance dance and authentic movement workshops alongside directing films on the topics of somatics and trance.
