For many of us the body, more specifically the feeling body, can be a painful and confusing place. It's no wonder that we develop strong habits of numbing, avoiding, and endlessly fixing our felt experiences that arise within it.
Just as our corporeal body suffers when we don't take proper care of it, so too does our feeling body of sensations and emotions. Like an attic that accumulates dust and cob webs when ignored, our body of feelings, emotions, and life force energies can "clutter," resulting in a not so stellar emotional life. This further compounds when we have unresolved trauma or relational injuries.
Embodied awareness is a practice of meeting the body on it’s own terms, learning to safely reconnect, and heal. We develop an ability to truly listen to our bodies, deepening our capacity to approach ever subtler sensations and emotions with a more inquisitive and evolving compassionate heart.
In this evening talk and half-day workshop we will dive deep into transformational embodied awareness practices that engage a unified and joyful loving presence. Through periods of meditation and discussion we will explore and develop our connection to a calmer, more resilient, and interconnected state of being and how to move beyond the self-fragmentation that causes unnecessary suffering.
