Embodiment for health, creativity and confidence in yourself!
In our culture of disembodiment we are encouraged to objectify our bodies and stress them with too much action and stimulation. When our bodies object through illness, we medicate them and carry on doing the same old thing. Somatic embodiment and movement practices are revolutionary because they encourage you to slow down your thoughts by tuning in to your feeling body in order to live a lifestyle that is truer to your nature.
During the evening, I will share some of the underpinning principles and benefits of my work with you. I will guide you to experience somatic awareness with the focus on feeling safe, embodied and resourced. We will reflect on what we find together and there will be time for you to contextualise your unique conditions in a group. I will prioritise your questions and interests as we engage more fully in the feeling of who we are in our bodies.
This is so much more than ‘navel gazing’, it is deep navel diving, tuning in to the feeling wisdom that is a constantly changing barometer of wellbeing!
