Embodied awareness is a practice of meeting the body on its own terms, learning to safely reconnect and heal. Through embodied awareness we develop an ability to truly listen to our bodies, deepening our capacity to approach subtle 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 discover how to move beyond the self-fragmentation that causes unnecessary suffering.
