Embodiment Matters

We are Somatic Naturalists and Embodiment Mentors. We are honored to steward of a living body of work we call Integrative Embodiment. We live in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah, with our amazing 11-year old son, a wild and wonderful kitty, a python, a gecko, and a bunch of hilarious hens. We are trained as Feldenkrais Practitioners, Embodied Life Instructors, Tai Chi teachers, Community Grief Tenders, a Work That Reconnects facilitator (Erin) yoga teacher and therapist (Erin) and a Structural Integrator (Carl.) We are also long-time meditators deeply grateful for our deep roots in the Lojong and Dzogchen traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. We host a podcast, write, work with private clients, teach courses, workshops, and retreats and we absolutely LOVE our work. We're so happy you're here!

About this course

“Freedom is a practice and a habit. You have to train yourself to walk as a free person, sit as a free person and eat as a free person. We need to train ourselves how to live.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

In this month’s online Embodiment Lab, we will be exploring freedom and habit.

Here is a short video I made for this month’s topic.

Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -Viktor Frankl

In this month’s embodiment lab, we will be diving into the rich topic of Embodying Freedom, and the connections between mindfulness, habits and freshness.

Each week you will receive a video teaching and a movement lesson, along with guided meditations, poetry and 2 live Zoom calls.

We look forward to our time together.

“The message here is that the only way to ease our pain is to experience it fully. Learn to stay. Learn to stay with uneasiness, learn to stay with the tightening, learn to stay with the itch, so that the habitual chain reaction doesn’t continue to rule our lives, and the patterns that we consider unhelpful don’t keep getting stronger as the days and months and years go by.” ― Pema Chödrön
