Strongly situated in the daily life, culture, traditions and ecology of Central Java, Prapto's Amerta Movement practice draws on Theravada Buddhism, Sumarah meditation, sites like Borobudur temple, Candi Sukuh, and coastal Parangtritis - as well as his internationally-known Padepokan Lemah Putih in Mojosongo, Solo.

As well as all those familiar with Prapto's work, the book will also be an inspiration and resource for:
dance, movement and performance artists, teachers and trainers;
therapists of all sorts, especially those working with somatics, embodiment, dance and movement;
academics and researchers in the fields of intercultural studies, human geography and living heritage;
anyone wanting to learn more about the nature and application of Prapto's movement practice;
anyone interested in the value of an embodied approach to life and work - current thinking about the brain and body points to the crucial importance of nonverbal, embodied perception and communication, and Amerta Movement offers an important path toward growth in this area.
