Our experience isn't constant; sometimes we can be very present, grounded and at home in our own skin. At such times we are more embodied. But most of the time we are quite alienated from our bodies and this tends to be make us less caring and more fearful.
Many people in the Western world remain unaware and disconnected from their own flesh, and that tragic reality prevents genuine growth. Splitting mind from body destroys our human integrity and sabotages efforts to make positive change.
My practice honours our embodiment, integrating ancient practices of both East and West with cutting edge science. Two strands are foundational: my own PhD research and Focusing, an approach that emerged from Person Centred practice but is also used by some Existential therapists.
Other embodied practices are influential on my work, notably Paul Linden's embodied awareness and William Bloom's Core Energy Management. I continue to explore these ideas in my Blog. If you'd like something more meaty, my Embodiment Resources website explores the explosion of philosophical and scientific research in this area.
