Embodiment Book – Out Today!

The labour of love is finally available! Embodiment - Moving Beyond Mindfulness is out now on Amazon! The book is a deep yet accessible overview of the field of embodiment. It's also super personal and it feels somewhat vulnerable to be putting it out there, but I'm...

My list of trauma healing

My list of trauma healing

Things I’ve found useful for my own trauma healing in no particular order (and it’s very personal): - EMDR (especially good for single instances) - TRE (empowering as you can do it yourself anywhere) - Long-term relational therapy - Bodywork (most recently...

Learn from thy enemy

Learn from thy enemy

Part of maturity is being able to see that which is beautiful and true, even in that which you despise, and even in that which has hurt you. As my mate Ken says, “nobody is smart enough to be totally wrong”. Having had some vicious and ironically unjust attacks from...

Trauma bullshit

Trauma bullshit

Dealing with the low level but incessant agitation of Ukraine for even a few days has reminded me of this: Traumatised people and countries can be a real pain in the arse. Ukraine, I love you, but like me and half of the world, you’re disconnected, sick and often act...

Top tips for facilitators

Top tips for facilitators

Know what you’re trying to do. Clear aims matter. Being is more important than tools. Embody what you’re teaching. Any training is a cycle. The beginning is not the middle, and the middle is not the end. This flow matters (eg building trust and authority early, and...

Suffering doesn’t help

Suffering doesn’t help

There’s a deeply held, implicit belief that we must suffer to grow. It’s Judeo-Christian essentially, but has made its way into all aspects of bodymind practice and personal growth. Today, extreme hot yoga, mud runs (and similar) and ice training are some of the most...
