Move out of your head and into your life.
Our deepest yearning is to experience wholeness in our lives – yet too often we feel scattered and off balance. The main source of our fragmentation is that we have been taught to live in our heads. Divided from the breath, the present, and the profound intelligence of the body, we sit in our heads and strain to make sense of it all. This workshop shows you another way of making sense, and helps you experience the body as you never have before. The cornerstone of The Embodied Present Process, this playful weekend provides you with new skills to last a lifetime.
Philip Shepherd has gained an international reputation as a teacher whose breadth of vision and original exercises enable people to escape the enclosed chatter of the head, and ground their thinking in the calm, deep-dwelling intelligence of the body. His workshop provides tools to last a lifetime, even as it gently opens the door to a radical experience of wholeness.
Class size limited to 18.

Here’s some additional information about the workshop (*Not the Talks!):What to prepare (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
Some of the exercises require that you know a short text by heart. Rest assured, this is not something you will ever be asked to perform – it’s just needed for some of the exercises. You can use one you are familiar with, or find a new one. It can be anything at all – a nursery rhyme, a song lyric, a Shakespearean monologue, the national anthem, a poem, anything. It really doesn't matter, although it does help if it’s something you enjoy. It can get pretty tedious saying, “Row, row, row your boat” over and over. Just saying... Whatever you choose to memorize, it should be at least 45 seconds long, though any length in excess of that is fine. Having it WELL memorized is important.
What to bring (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
Apart from lunch and maybe a snack and a water bottle, you might wish to bring something to lie on for exercises (a yoga mat or even just a towel) and clothes that are comfortable to move in.
Lunch (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
There will be a one-hour lunch break.
