CULTIVATING EMBODIMENT WORKSHOP

Woman Meditating Outdoors

Our bodies are our homes, our refuges. Our bodies have an aliveness that we can tap into if we pay attention. Our bodies have a deep wisdom that we can access if we know how to listen. Our bodies are the ground of our awakening.

Yet for so many of us, we spend most of our attention outside our bodies—in the environment or in our minds. For many of us, our bodies are no more than vehicles to carry our heads around. Many of us who have experienced trauma (big or small) or pain have essentially been “kicked out” of our bodies.

In this workshop participants will engage in a number of experiences designed to help them come home into their bodies more and to start to tap into the wisdom of the body. The program will include a mix of embodiment meditations, exercises, gentle mindful movement, and discussion.

The morning session focuses on practices related to learning to fully live within the body in meditation and in daily life, reclaiming our bodies as our homes. The afternoon session focuses on the wisdom of the body—working with emotional awareness and regulation, disentangling from underlying beliefs and hurts, and exploring a deeper fundamental consciousness and intuition within the body.
