Embodied Therapeutic Practice

Embodiment can simply be defined as living life informed through the sense experience of the body. Our bodies are our first lived experience in the world before words and the development of higher intelligence.

Unfortunately, as we grow, we often attempt to understand our 'problems' just through one area, the mind, rather than using all that is available to us for knowledge and insight. Our body offers us a whole area of often untapped knowledge and awareness that is highly effective in creating lasting insight.

It is through body knowledge and re-learning this knowledge that we begin to develop awareness on a new level. It is this knowledge that offers skills to help keep you present and connected to live life more fully. Our body is our gateway to mindfulness.
