Body Wisdom:
Waking Up to What the Body Knows

Zuleikha, Kristin Neff, Tami Simon

We spend most of our time living in our heads.

It’s natural to think it’s our best — or only — source
 of information. But as a result, we miss out on vast amounts of wisdom, intuition, creativity, and brilliance — all accessible from our bodies. Most of us never learned how to read the body’s subtle signs. We weren’t taught how to slow down and listen to what our bodies are telling us. So we shut down, tense up, and stress out.

It’s time to change all that. Our well-being depends on it! Let’s learn the language of our bodies and train ourselves to recognize and pay attention to the cues and messages they are always sending. Let’s discover what happens when we tune in to our body sensations and access what we know from the inside out.

Body Listening

with Zuleikha

Begin with the body you have.
Start the day getting really comfortable in the body you’re in, gently learning to follow its true impulses and becoming aware of the organic flow between even the tiniest of movements. You’ll naturally begin to leave behind habitual ways of moving and ease into freer, more spontaneous expressions of your inner life force.

Drawing from her decades of work throughout the world — in dance, the movement arts, and humanitarian efforts — Zuleikha helps catalyzes immediate awakenings through simple, go-to self-care practices you can do right in the middle of your daily life to reconnect with the deep magic you embody.


Embodying Self-Compassion

with Kristin Neff

Create kindness with yourself.
Self-compassion is about treating ourselves as well as we would a close friend. It’s about paying attention to our tendency to be critical and remembering that everyone struggles, that we are all imperfect. Self-compassion is rooted in the physiological system of compassion and caregiving, creating an embodied state of loving, connected presence. Recent studies powerfully associate self-compassion with psychological well-being, reminding us that positive inner states, such as caring, connection, and presence, are critical aspects of who we are.

Kristin Neff is a groundbreaking researcher, educator, and speaker on the topic of self-compassion. She will share important wisdom on how we can develop more kindness with ourselves and present the latest findings of cutting-edge research. She will also teach a simple self-compassion exercise that can be used regularly throughout your day.


Letting the Wisdom of the Body Lead

with Tami Simon

Embody your life.
How can we consistently access the wisdom of the body — and even begin to let it lead the unfolding direction of our lives? Tami Simon, the founder of the multi-media publishing company Sounds True, will presents what she calls “being true.” In this highly experiential session, you will be guided through a process for waking up the body’s field of intelligence and also practice connecting with the belly center, tuning in to your “gut sense.” Tami will also teach “on-the-spot” techniques for connecting to the body’s wakefulness and intelligence right in the midst of a busy life.
