Embodiment 

8 Weeks to Embodying Kindness in Physical Movement
Breathing, grounding & relaxing to heal illness, anxiety, and fatigue 

Embodiment practice is based upon “Hara” a traditional Zen practice encompassing martial arts, meditation, painting, and dance. Embodiment teaches our body’s natural way of breathing, posturing, and relaxing. Embodiment immediately frees us from our default of being lost in self-obsessive thought.  -Charley Cropley, ND

Embodiment is a primary teaching and guide for healing habitual, self-harming behavior.  This course teaches participants how to access and experience their own true power, passion, and wisdom--and to use these empowered resources to heal food cravings, anxiety, pain, fatigue, and fear.  The skills taught through our naturopathic services correct, elevate and enhance skillfulness in eating, moving, thinking, and relating. Participants learn from our natural medicine doctors to meet themselves where they are in an authentic, natural, fully engaged embodiment of breathing, posturing, and relaxing.   

 

"We use the practice of embodiment to free ourselves from our habits and addictions.  From this embodied state participants rapidly master self-harming behaviors, cravings, anxiety, pain, and fatigue." -Charley Cropley, ND 

If you are new to working with our natural medicine doctors, please book a Preliminary Health Consultation prior to enrolling in this Course.  Thank you and welcome!
