Embodiment Basics & Beyond
Building The Contatiner
Welcome, Wild One...
I am so glad you are here! I am celebrating you for choosing you. Your journey deeply matters.
Wholeness and connection within your being creates a greater capacity to connect to life, others, the earth, and the world.
It heals the planet.
Take this journey at your own pace.
When you are ready to move on to what is next, just scroll down the page. Pause, redo, and take time to digest.
Listen to the rhythm your body wants to move at, not the rhythm you think you should move at :)
Getting to know sensations....
Sensations are the building blocks of life. When we contact them, we are directly contacting life.
This audio practice is designed to begin to cultivate your capacity to notice and be with sensations. This is the foundational piece for all embodiment and somatic work.
This takes time!
Do this practice as often as you can, at least 3 different times before moving on to the next video.
Attached is a PDF, The Language of Sensations. Use this PDF to support learning the language of your body. It takes practice to learn how to feel, notice, be with, and track sensations.
You can download this audio practice, or listen to it right here on the player below.
Befriending The Body
Take a pause.....
Grab your journal and tune into your body.
Take 3 full breaths, maybe placing hands on body if that feels right for you. Tune in.
What are you noticing?
Can you name 2 or 2 sensations that you are noticing in your body?
(You can look back at your sensation list if you need)
What is alive in your body?
What's true for you in this moment?
Let it pour out onto the page. Full permission. All is welcome.
Befriending The Body
This is an audio version of the practice I led you through in the video above.
You can use this practice at any time to deepen your body awareness and to come more fully into the wholeness and fullness of you.
Put it into play.....
This section will be in each module....it's where you take what you are learning and practicing in this container and put it into play in your life. Because that's what really matters.
How does this work translate to your life? How do you begin to put it into your everyday?
So here is your invitation to put it into play.....
~Practice tuning into sensations throughout your day.
Pause, bring a hand to your body, and tune in.
What's alive in your body? Can you notice 2 or 3 sensations?
Without trying to fix, change, or make it better, can you just notice what's happening in your body at the level of physical sensation?
In order to have the capacity to meet challenging sensations, energy, and feelings in the body we must cultivate safety.
We all have trauma to varying degrees, and we have all been through lots of life experiences. The body holds all of it. So, the more we increase our capacity for safety, the more room there is to navigate what might feel more challenging.
Remember, work at your own pace. Maybe you just stay here for a while and build safety. (I did this for about a year before I was ready to move on to more, and it's still a foundational part of my personal practice.)
Honor your body, honor your own unfolding.
Resourcing is an incredible skill set to develop. It allows us to grow our capacity to meet what feels challenging.
In this audio practice, you will be guided into attuning to different layers of resources. Use this at any time to start to deepen your ability to resource, and then start to put it into play in your life!
Expanding Your Awareness
This practice opens up your awareness to not just the physical sensations, but also the emotional landscape and the thinking. These 3 planes are all access points into what's true for you.
This practice increases presence and awareness while awakening more choice, agency, and capacity.
It's another very key foundational practice, so do it at least twice before moving on to what's next :)
