Opening to Your Body's Deeper Intelligence by Philip Shepherd
There is a growing appreciation of the need for embodiment in our lives – an understanding that as long as we live in our heads, we will remain disconnected from our deeper truth and aliveness. But to find your way back to the body is a huge challenge if you are unaware of all the cultural prompts you face to discount the body, deny its form of thinking, and defer to the head. This video is a masterclass in embodiment. It helps you chart a path to free yourself of our culture’s conditioning, and provides a practice to start you on your way.
Philip Shepherd is recognized as a leader in the global embodiment movement. He is the creator of The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), which he developed over 40 years of teaching embodiment practices, and shares worldwide in both in workshops and Facilitators Trainings. TEPP uniquely combines the two resources necessary for embodiment: effective practices, and a deep understanding of our culture’s blind spots, which tend to keep us in our heads. TEPP is based on Philip’s two books – Radical Wholeness and New Self, New World – which articulate the causes, perils and challenges of our culture’s disembodiment. Philip’s personal journey to embodiment includes cycling alone as a teenager through Europe, the Middle East, Iran, India and Japan; studying classical Japanese Noh Theater; co-founding an interdisciplinary theatre company; writing two internationally produced plays and a television documentary; and playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto. In the non-Covid world, he travels the world sharing workshops and running year-long Facilitators Trainings with his co-director and wife Allyson Woodrooffe. His website and online courses are found at EmbodiedPresent.com, and his new book, Deep Fitness, which he co-authored with Andrei Yakovenko, was released in 2021.
