The Call

"The quality of our relationships is the most important factor for happiness and health.” (75-year Harvard Study)

Our relationships are not only sources of pleasure and sanctuary but also hold immense potential for our growth.

Are you ready to explore?

“There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy”

Nietzsche

Why Embodied Connection?

Embodiment is about coming home to our bodies and accessing the aliveness and richness that exists within. 

Coming closer to who we are through our bodies allows us to more meaningfully connect to the experience of others.

When these territories are explored skilfully, honest relationships and sparks of magic become the norm rather than the exception.

What's it like?

Embodied connection is about skilfully bringing your full self in contact with others and having a greater capacity to meet the whole person in front of you.

It's authentic and life-bringing, and can sometimes be vulnerable.

Through learning to listen more to the quality of the connection itself, we can gradually let go more deeply and move beyond communicating from one ‘tip of an iceberg’ to another.
