PATHWAYS OF THE BODY
a somatic based mentorship to remember ourselves at home again,
in the body
A 4 -month private mentorship journey of awakening into self-love, embodied compassion and somatic aliveness
somatic resilience • embodiment • restorative movement •
self-compassion • empowerment • non-dual philosophy
For 4 months we meet once per week virtually to explore restorative and gentle movement infused with the wisdom of the monthly theme.
Additionally every week you receive further guidance and exercises in the form of recorded practices, resources and reflection prompts
Personalized guidance and practices for your own personal journey
1:1 on going support for the whole duration of mentorship
I. The thinking self
What we explore each month
Meditation and body based mindfulness
The first step into changing our relationship to our body, is to notice the deeply ingrained beliefs and stories we tell ourselves. In this first month we deepen into meditation practices to begin a shedding of the layers of conditioning that keep us separated from the beauty within.
II. The feeling self
We begin to explore the meaning of Embodiment and work with a deeply releasing and energizing movement practice that allows us to reconnect to our capacity to feel again and to improve our life based on the deeply intuitive wisdom of the feeling self.
III. The soft animal of the Body
Nervous System Resilience
In order for us to feel at home again in the body, an organic sense of safety and trust is required. In this month we learn about our nervous system as the most ancient, animal part of our self and we explore techniques both to soothe and to challenge our capacity to feel resilient and at ease in the body.
IV. Embodied self-compassion
Creative, contemplative and somatic practices inspired by Tantric Buddhism & Non dual Kashmir Shaivism
For our last month we study two different philosophical and spiritual paths that will allow us to gain a different perspective about the body's place in spirituality. We challenge patriarchal, orthodox and capitalist oriented narratives of somatic oppresion and explore different practices infused with the wisdom of non-dualism.
