Over the years many of you have gotten in touch with me to say how much you liked the “home-play” part of the Liberated Body episodes- i.e. the body-based explorations at the end of each show. You can think of this as one long home play episode!
This little embodiment gift is courtesy of myself and Liam Bowler, who is the creator of the podcast The Body Awake. I lead a somatic meditation, and then Liam leads an embodied movement exploration. It is also an appetizer of our upcoming weekend workshop: Living Your Body’s Intelligence which is this July 28 and 29 in Seattle. Which still has tickets left- so if you want to come play with us you can read all about what exactly we'll be doing and/or get tickets on its Eventbrite page.
If you have listened to Liberated Body and to The Body Awake you know Liam and I are kindred spirits- that our work is dedicated to the larger, and I would say unanswerable inquiries around what is a body? How do we really connect with our bodies and from there with our lives? What gifts does the body have to deliver if we learn how to have an intimate and reciprocal relationship with it?
Over the course of our parallel inquiries it became clear that it would be really fun and also useful to do a class together where we can lead people deep into landing in their bodies, but also to bridge how embodiment translates into our lives. How do we change our orientation from concepts and thoughts to being led by our felt experiences and why bother?
We get into depth with that in our weekend workshop- and here in this episode this is taste of that- a somatic meditation led by me, and an embodied movement exploration led by Liam. It’s some “land in yourself” assistance- which is where it all starts.
