The Embodied Life: Presencing and Re-Visioning: A warm-hearted caring for self and world, i.e. Love, is a natural unfolding from embodied presencing.

Presencing – The process of engaging fully in the present moment. When "presencing a moment", you are experiencing the here and now as an integration of body, mind, heart, nature and your social world — cultivating the art of Being and authentic humanity.

Re-Visioning – From this state of presencing, you can open to images, directions and guidance from "the wisdom body", a source of reliable intuitions for your uniquely unfolding life.

Embodiment – Being grounded and centered in one's physical body — a reliable path to presencing the moment.

The Embodied Life is an integrated path of insight and awakening.

Connecting present moment awareness with your intentions and dreams for the future creates a truthful and meaningful life. Through specific practices, you will learn to integrate: mindfulness, heart-fullness, body-fullness, and spatial awareness. This is wholeness. Sitting quietly and caringly with your thoughts Mindfully welcoming your feelings Finding comfort in your body.

The seminar will include:

  • Embodied meditation – A bare-bones, non-ideological approach to experiencing the present moment. This is the basis for being at home in ourselves. Chairs are available and lying down is possible when needed.
  • Guided Inquiry – A variety of awareness experiments for uncovering obstacles to the presence and inviting direction. Learning to bring a caring, curious presence to our emotions and “negative” thoughts is truly transformative.
  • Embodied Movement Practices – Feldenkrais movement lessons are powerful, neurologically-based motor sequences that quickly invite a deepening of body awareness.  You will learn simple, standing movements based in archetypal patterns found in art throughout the world, inviting potent, life-giving experiences.

Each day will include short meditations, awareness practices, movement lessons and interactive talks/conversations.

This workshop is open to all people.
