Embodiment is conscious habitation of every cell, tissue, organ, muscle, breath and moment.
Embodiment is about being here fully – in this body, in this moment, on this planet, at this time – Now.
Embodiment is the journey inward that connects you to your inner wisdom and gives you permission to feel – To Be Sensational.
Society and especially patriarchically rooted programming, focus on transcendence – seeing the body as mundane with the goal of leaving the constructs of matter behind to merge with the pervasive – Source, Energy, God Spirit.
Jocelyn and Shakti, embodiment educators, leaders in the contemporary hoop dance movement and respected international instructors, practice sensual living and full body engagement as their primary pathways to Source.
Each believe that we are here on this planet to fully experience connection within the physical wisdom of the human body, in relationship with the Earth body. It is through this sensual connection that the practitioner becomes influential – in flow with her essence – and in tune with the needs of the planet. This is how she develops her relationship with compassion (the container that holds all things), experiences true joy and accesses real solutions that uplift herself and her community.
In this experiential immersion, you will:
- Connect with your innate wisdom
- Experience life as a meditation and prayer
- Navigate courageously through shifting sensation, emotional fulness and mental movements
- Experience a Somatic Movement Dive & ThetaHealing Guided Meditation
- Access the quiet, still point within
- Learn how to trust the channel that you are
- Enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Naya Retreat Center*
- Melt restrictions and dance your dreams into waking life
- Practice embodied living with other conscious movers
*This is a non-residential event.
