This week’s show is with Mark Walsh, Mark is the founder of The Embodied Facilitator Course, Embodied Yoga Principles, The Embodiment Podcast and The Embodiment Conference, a ground-breaking event attended by over 15,000 people worldwide. With an honours degree in psychology, 20+ years of yoga experience and an aikido black belt, he has dedicated his life to embodied learning. These days, he teaches and mentors young embodiment teachers all over the world.
In this conversation, Mark and I explored the incredibly juicy topic of why embodiment is connection (and conversely why disembodiment is disconnection). Mark shared the 5 ways we can be connected and gave some beautifully clear practical ways you can increase your connection… or rather your embodiment.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- The 5 ways that Mark describes that we can be connected are: self, meaning, others, planet, spirit, clearly being connected (or disconnected) in these ways is fundamental to our lived experience
- We can become more skilled with our embodiment and therefore expand our range (or level of connection) so we have more choice around how we show up in different contexts and environments
- Choosing into being more embodied can be as simple as noticing how you’re currently sitting, standing, breathing or feeling and making small shifts to create a different experience.
