Actualized Intimacy: A Pathway to Embodiment 

What is Embodiment?

To be embodied is to maintain connection with awareness, as we slow down and experience a deeper understanding of our inner environment within our own mind and body. When we become aware of what is happening inside ourselves (i.e. emotions, feelings, sensations) we become more deeply attuned to how we relate through relationship. Our relationship with ourselves, with others, and those in the world around us, shifts on a spectrum of embodiment that determines the nature and quality of our interactions. 

We live in a deeply intimate and relational world. We are always in communication, verbal to nonverbal, subtle to expressive, introverted to extroverted ways of being in relationship. We are relational creatures, and every moment is an opportunity to invite, feel into, and embody this intimacy.

When we are embodied, we are able to expand into the intrinsic part of ourselves, and make ourselves known to one another at the deepest level. When this connection with the innermost part of ourselves is hindered, however, we see the other as outside of ourselves, and risk perpetuating more suffering and even violence. In other words, we can jeopardize ourselves and those we are intimate with to a negative, and often lasting impression on our inmost self.
Western culture has been suffering from a disembodiment epidemic, fast paced culture, net worth equated to self-worth, and the “Me Too” movement for example has revealed some of its greatest costs. The question we are tasked with: how will we evolve to be more embodied? 

Empathically attuned connection. First, beginning with ourselves first, then with one another, in our communities, and in the world at large. 

Ultimately bringing us from a culture of separation into a culture of togetherness.
