    Ep 81: Embodied Relating to Self, Others, and the World

    Ep 81: Embodied Relating to Self, Others, and the World

    This is a homeplay episode! In other words, it's a chance to be guided through some embodied practice. In this case, it's about inhabiting internal space so that we can relate to ourselves, others, and the world in a more present and clear and heartfelt way. At its core, embodied practice has to be relational or it risks being a hobby or, weirdly, a disembodied "thing to do" or object to acquire. Fortunately, this ability to shift the quality of how we relate is also the big win of embodied practice. Check it out and play with it for yourself in today's episode. 
    For more information on the longer embodied relating course that Brooke is teaching in the month of December 2020, you can visit www.liberatedbeing.community/spaciousandsturdy Registration is open now through November 30th.
