What is Embodiment?
Come back to your body with grace & ease.
Explore your body’s inherent intelligence, healing, transformation and expression. The intuitive body is central to our explorations for its capacity to bridge the conscious and unconscious, and to connect us to internal resources for healing.
Embodiment practice blends intuitive movement, somatic inquiry psychotherapy and somatic/body intelligence exercises. We explore uncharted possibilities for self-expression, embodied change, connection, and belonging. Embodiment practice creates space for exploring the self in the native languages of the body: creative movement, felt sense and feeling, instinctual wisdom and intuitive cognition, authentic self-expression, and deep connection to Earth.
Explore deep and uncharted waters within your own being. Allow space to bridge your inner world and outer world.
You will “see” yourself through breath and movement. You will release grief, to experience deeper self love, acceptance and spaciousness – explore your wild soul. Develop a heightened level of curiosity and a desire to follow what comes up within you.
We cannot speak of embodiment unless we speak of the heart. It is central to the descent of our aware essence into our experience of a much vaster truth, one that only the heart can contain and know.
Until the heart is grounded in the deep wisdom of itself, it can overcompensate with emotional attachment and emotional extremes. Becoming grounded and connected to our hearts is a crucial support when accessing unconscious fear, most especially when we have stored it away in the body.
The more we trust our heart, the more it will reveal its true nature and with it a love that longs to greet every hidden corner of your being. Layer upon layer of hidden unconscious is liberated through the heart. The emancipation of the unconscious is the richest alchemy and results in the direct knowing that all that has ever been present is Love. When we know that we become that ~ we live embodied.
Connect with yourself again and again – come back to your body – in a nurturing and opening experience where you will listen to the subtle and not so subtle messages your body gives you on a moment to moment basis.
Living Embodied – The Embodied Well-Being Program
A 3-Month Embodied Process
– Deepen Your Connection to Yourself, Trust Your Intuition, Inner Wisdom & Truth
This program allows you to tap into something deeper within yourself. Something you’ve been longing for. You will step into new ways of feeling and being – Be Fully Alive – and live from a place you may have never known – your authentic truth from your body, mind & heart.
New ways of being in the world do not happen by chance.
Embodied Well-Being Program is a 3-Month program provides consistency and support by offering structure and practice for those who are committed to doing deep, transformational work. While the focus is on the ideas included below – this program is customized for you – for each person who commits to themselves and their inner work.
Embodied Well-Being Program draws on a diverse, integrated combination of an In-Your-Body process and study in the areas of embodiment (living from the truth held in your body), Integrative Body Psychotherapy, sacred movement, somatic psychology, embodied mindfulness, energy work, clarity breath work, Body-Mind Centering, Continuum Movement, dream work and holistic self-inquiry.
You will deeply understand that love is who you are. You will free stuck energy in your body, move beyond the repetitive patterns of your mind & body and set yourself free.
You will feel radiantly alive.
You will make sense of and understand your core wounds, core beliefs, emotional patterns, feelings of unworthiness and feeling not good enough – and finally break through to feelings of love, worthiness and joy.
This is a deep, transformational, one-on-one program – created to help you know the love that exists within you – become empowered and clear space within yourself to grow, blossom and transform – within yourself, in your love relationships, work and family life.
You will deeply connect with the love and beauty within you – while making peace with your shadow.
You will breathe through your whole body and share your feelings – and you will work through body practices, journal exercises, arts exercises, and suggested meditations and movement to help you break free of what has been keeping feeling boxed-in or stuck in some areas of your life.
Most importantly – you will begin a lifelong, deep connection and love for yourself – your body, mind & heart – and new practices of connecting deeply with yourself that will begin on the first day of the program and continue every day after that.
When you step forward – invest and commit to yourself – you give yourself the time to clear space in your life for new awareness & understanding of yourself and within your relationships too.
You are not a problem to be solved. You are a beautiful life to be lived.
Embodied Well-Being Program includes the following:
Somatic Inquiry Therapy & Integrated Embodied Mindfulness sessions
Ongoing Individual sessions – Online – via Skype
Embodied Study – In-Your-Body practices & discovery in-between sessions for you
Somatic Movement practices, meditations, journal exercises, breath work and readings for you
Here’s what we’ll do in our sessions together:
Awaken Your Heart – Cultivate and Practice of Paying Attention to Yourself in Your Everyday Life.
Explore how you may have learned to turn away from and abandon yourself and your true needs, and learn to let go of the patterns that keep you feeling hurt, scared and alone. Understand your fear-based patterns, and learn to begin to turn towards yourself in self-loving ways. Slow down, take time to really know yourself and what keeps you feeling weighted down. Create a new pattern of paying loving attention to yourself – emotionally, physically and spiritually
Clear a Path to Your Truth – Explore the Inner Forces that created the Self that you Believe is You.
Break through old patterns, take down the blocks and barriers that keep you stuck. What’s meaningful to you now? We will uncover possibilities for you and allow you to take time to listen, breathe and to pay attention to YOU. We will uncover why you may have turned away from yourself and how to start a new pattern of paying attention to yourself – emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Practice Profound Presence – Connect with & Open a Dialogue with Your Body.
Let’s slow down and get quiet. Let’s take some time to get to know what happening within you emotionally and physically. Let’s breathe into your truth and be with what arises. Sacred movement practices allow your energy to flow again. You are supported.
Understand Your Deeply Held Beliefs & Family Dynamics.
Everything that happened before now sets up the movement of your life. You will learn about how your childhood messages and family history plays a role in the way things are right now and how to heal the past and move forward with love and kindness for yourself and others.
Heal Your Shadow Self.
You will learn more about the vows you made to yourself long ago – what you’ve been hiding and suppressing in order to feel loved and accepted. You will learn about taking responsibility for the real you and letting go of expectations, moving beyond fear, conflict, blame and self-doubt. You will become clear about your feelings, emotions and what assumptions and choices you have made that keep you from being true to yourself and following what feels authentic and truthful for you.
Come Back to Your Body & Cultivate a Deep Inner Knowing.
You are Lovable, Worthy & Enough– No matter how successful you are on the outside, you may have nagging feelings of unworthiness, low self-confidence, and low self-esteem. You may be saying to yourself – I have achieved a lot in my life, and I still feel badly. Why? We will uncover what is at the root of your feelings of unworthiness and low self-esteem and you will open yourself to universal feelings of love and worthiness.
Open to Your Gifts – Allow Yourself to Receive.
We will take time to reflect on everything that has happened so far in your life and how all of it feels to you. We will hold space for everything that has happened before, acknowledge your contributions and open yourself energetically and completely to allowing what is truly meaningful into your life now.
Practice Self-Acceptance & Self-Compassion.
This is a key element of the process of connecting to your wisdom and living your truth and how you can implement daily and weekly timeless practices to gently focus on yourself. Practice trust, belief and opening to your deepest truth.
Let In What You’ve Always Longed For – Feel Connected.
Come back to yourself – loving yourself sets you free. Holding nothing back, you will learn to feel your fear and move beyond it so that you can live fearless and free in the only moment we have – NOW – and live deeply and fully with grace today and in the days following this program.

Tell me it’s wrong
Tell me it’s wrong to follow what brings me pleasure and allows my spirit to flow.
Tell me it’s wrong to follow what the raw part of me craves and pulls me closer and deeper into.
Tell me it’s wrong to want breath and movement in every moment.
Tell me it’s wrong to follow what’s juicy in me towards shadowy, uncertain places.
Tell me it’s wrong to be me.
