Embodied Communication Practice Group

  • provided upon RSVP Columbia, MO (map)

To “embody” myself means that I slow down and recognize that my body, my breath and tissue, my sensation of self and the environment, is always only in the present moment. To embody allows me to recognize my thoughts, emotions, and spirit in relation to my sensory body, in relation to the present.

Embodiment allows me to better understand my own needs, desires, thoughts, stories, and feelings.

Embodiment helps me to improve and enjoy my relationships with others, staying present even when we can’t see eye to eye.

Embodiment helps connect me to the environment--to be in touch with the earth under my feet, the air that my body breathes, the fire of the sun, and the pull of the waters.

To claim and practice embodiment is a radical form of activism, especially in these difficult times when my impulse and coping tool may be to shut down or turn away--or to be in a constant state of agitation
