WHAT IS EMBODIED CONSCIOUSNESS?

“We are not just here to realize our divine nature but to embody that nature in human form.”
- John Welwood

Embodiment is our direct experience of the self as it is mediated by the psychological, emotional, social and physiological processes that intersect in the body. If the body is the form through which consciousness emerges, then learning to listen to the inner language of the body is primary to the task of healing, self-actualization and human fulfillment.

Just as we navigate the terrain of our external environment through its textures, curves, temperatures, densities, hills and valleys, so too we can explore the inner landscape and become intimate with the layers, flavors, and unique qualities of our self. Becoming consciously embodied is the process of attuning to the vibrant inner landscape so as to be more awake in ourselves and more alive in our relationships.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS EVENT?

Unlike a conference, this immersion is an experiential journey, from start to finish, to guide you in working with yourself and others in this profound mind-body-spirit medicine. This world renown faculty is working together to co-create a journey for you through the processes of embodying consciousnesses.
