The Talk – Recovering Our Senses in the 21st Century
“The real adventure consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes” Proust
Most of our problems, individually and globally, stem from a single root cause: we have created a culture of disconnection. Philip Shepherd has devoted his life to understanding how that happened, how it impacts our personal lives, and how we can ‘reconnect’ with the world that sustains us. The story of our disconnection goes back ten thousand years, when we began to withdraw our intelligence from the attuned awareness of the body and contract it into the head.
This gave us new powers of perspective, analysis and control. But what initially empowered us now holds us hostage: we yearn to join the present, but cannot calm our busy, anxious, self-occupied, distracted need to control.
In this presentation, Philip offers new insights and choices that help us move towards the kind of wholeness in our lives that is rooted in the deep calm of the body, and is open to the harmony and support of the world around us. He also guides participants through some simple, gentle exercises that make that wholeness a real experience.
Philip is the author of New Self, New World, and the creator of The Embodied Present Process™. He also teaches workshops internationally.
