I see you, you conscious, activated human on a quest for heart, healing, movement, Mystery, meaning, and the everyday magic of living as your true, embodied and empowered self.
You are caring, compassionate and capable. And I’m calling you in on your own epic journey of becoming. Healers, thinkers, doers, activists, creatives. I see you. We can sustainably do our work in the world if we take care of ourselves and keep healing and growing.
I offer my service as a wayshower, an ally, and a keeper of the hearth of the heart.
Here, there is safe and sacred space to show up for yourself, as yourself, for each other. To spread out and wade around in the many faces of being human. To be guided and supported. To increase your inner resources. To pollinate your wisdom.
I'm so glad you're here. Let's get started...
This online gathering space is a chalice for community around our practice of embodiment including:
Online community Inspiration, communication, sharing of experiences, announcements on PPY offerings.
SpandaBum Journal A weekly digest of stories, contemplations, information, micro practices, and nuggets of wisdom.
autoBodyography Subscription Your weekly mind-body journal for self-authoring the story of you, now. A monthly subscription for self-care, self-reflection and self-discovery delivered weekly. This private space for experiencing will include weekly yoga & movement class, reflection prompts, learning opportunities, and a monthly live call.
And have a little fun doing it.
This journey is from the ground up. That is, it starts somatically in the physical body, organic keeper of truth and timelines, holder of stories, and the medicine of knowingness, and invites in the cognitive intelligence from there.
This work is a multi-dimensional activation of healing, inner resources, empowerment and a deep knowledge of self that engenders the wholeness, self-agency, compassion, and intuition that is becoming increasingly necessary to inhabit a conscious, supported and intentional role in our changing world.
When we access our choices from this place, the energy that flows becomes practical and alive in communities. As the saying goes, a rising tide lifts all boats. Empowered people empower people.
There are 4 pillars to this work.
Four is the number of stability, foundation, and our human root.
As a wayshower, it is the framework used here to guide and support your embodiment process. As Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen teaches, support precedes movement.
The movement of the process itself follows the energy of the spiral, the pattern through which all life evolves and returns. Our spiral will be to pass through each of the four pillars again and again in each program offered.
We encourage what is complete or no longer viable in your beingness to simply fall away. We invite what is ready to bloom to open into safe and nurtured space. Much of this process is below the level of consciousness. Some of it includes community for additional resourcing.
With each turn of the spiral, we simply place attention on what is happening in that moment. We perceive and acknowledge and reflect. As we move forward in action, we do so having chosen our course. We offer appreciation and reverence as we cross thresholds of becoming.
The 4 Pillars
emBodyEcology >> Yoga & Movement
Our wisdom and knowingness is in our cells in relationship to the whole. The orientation of this chalice is exploration and integration through the sensation and fertile information of movement. It's a simplified and slow presence, holding within it possibility, clarity and informed choice. It enhances availability to healing and growth and ability identify long-held patterns ripe for rewriting. This somatically-focused asana and movement practice is grounded in human development, experiential anatomy & embryology and is inspired by EmbodiYogaTM. Result? More you, more better. Bonus: increased capacity for sustained enJOYment of life.
emBodyOracle >> Energy
Two words: energy hygiene. BodyOracle is all about intuition, agency, and seniority in the somatic field of experience of self and in relationship with others and the natural world. A mixture of ancient practices with Tantrik and Vedic origins and more recent ways of working with the energy and mental bodies, this chalice of exploration will include meditation, mudra, mantra, pranayama, and some modern energy work. Hello, empaths and sensitive people? You’ve come home to roost.
emBodyMystic >> Reflection
A mystic is one who has direct, personal experience with the Great Mystery. This chalice offers ample opportunity to reflect on your experiences and sink into the heartwood of your divine life unfolding. Mindfulness, swadhyaya, beauty-gazing, truth telling, creative expression, communing with nature, ceremony crafting, meaning-making are just some of the ways we honor thresholds in our embodied life in relationship with ourselves, with big Mamma Earth, all of her celestial friends, and all whose life she supports.
emBodyCollective >> Community
Belonging. Can I say that again? Belonging! Looking inward is the foundation for turning outward with vulnerability and in integrity as the creatures we are, hard-wired for connection. Safe, committed and conscious container with clear communication and vibrant idea and inspiration sharing is vital for supporting and maintaining sustained embodiment outside of that container in our larger community ecosystems. The online chalice for conscious community engaged in this work will be available to anyone who desires to join and is willing to commit to the agreements that shape the container.
