Motion to Mindfulness
If you do not change direction, you might end up where you are heading"~ Lao Tzu
The embodied Self & Self Development
Feeling at home in your body
Psychotherapy, Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation all seek to heal the split between the Mind body so we can live life in a more whole and Embodied way. Embodied Being is the capacity to be fully present to and accepting of ourselves and our experience in the here and now. Honoring our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual experience.
What does it mean to be 'fully Embodied' ?
Being "embodied" Signifies:
Connection to the subtle body and inner resources of creativity, intuition inspiration, connection to inner potential & inner guidance
Connection to your Dreams
Feeling connected to your body and your feelings in a safe manner
Ability to recognise and correct cognitive distortions about yourself
Connection to and acceptance of all parts of yourself
Connection to your sense of Self, your soul
Ability to identify inner needs and tend to them appropriately
