WELCOME. At The Embodiment Conference, the wisdom of the world’s leading embodiment teachers will be available online for free. 

We are doing something new and ambitious and you’re warmly invited. From November 13th – 24th 2018, over eighty renowned teachers will come together to share their experience in an online global event. We will explore a wide range of embodiment topics, including yoga, therapy, creativity, natural movement, meditation, martial arts, bodywork and ecology. If you’re interested in the body, there will be something for you. It’ll be a great way to both deepen your current understanding and broaden your perspectives. 

This conference will connect you with others who love embodiment, give you a broad overview of the field, allow free access to genuine experts (wherever you are) and enrich your own current practice.
 

The conference consists of hour-long Zoom sessions (these are like group Skype calls), including interviews, interactive workshops, presentations and discussions. These will be spread across time zones globally, so you have the chance to attend some live. All calls will be recorded for you to watch in your own time (they’re freely available for one week). The content will be available as a package to purchase one week after the event. This model ensures it is available to everyone for free, while still covering our costs.

Our goal is to create a global community, and make embodied learning available to everyone.

Join us on your devices – computers, tablets, smartphones

THIS CONFERENCE IS FOR YOU IF YOU ARE:


• A yoga practitioner, bodyworker, dancer or martial artist who loves embodiment
 

• A coach, therapist or facilitator who wants a deeper dive into working with the body

 Someone who is just curious about the body and mind

 

YOU WILL RECEIVE:

• Greater depth in your embodied specialism and broader knowledge of other areas

• Practical new tools and applications for your personal and professional life


• Professional exchange and community with other like-minded people

Welcome from your conference host, Mark Walsh

“I love embodiment. Since I was a child it’s been my life, passion and work. In that time I’ve also witnessed the global reach of embodiment spread with the internet’s rise. Through YouTube, podcasts, social media and online learning, I’ve seen people from diverse fields start to come together, and those who didn’t have access before, are now being given it freely. Nothing makes me happier than this technology-enabled, somatic revolution, and it’s time to accelerate it. People’s disconnection from themselves leads to disconnection from each other and also from the planet. Cognitively-privileged alienation is killing us, and the world can no longer afford a disembodied populace. Time to step up.

In this conference, we’ve envisioned something bold. We have a great organising team, the necessary technology, and something a bit special is possible. What Google has done with information, this conference will start to do with embodied experience: to make what is wise, world-changing and always at hand, freely available to all. We want to connect those globally who share passion for this work, and offer leaders in this field a wider reach for the good that they do. Typically, organizers of events say they are ‘excited’, but this does not sum up the deep yearning and sense of purpose that I have for this conference. It will be profound. You are warmly invited.”

Logistics

Zoom video calls

This conference will be hosted on Zoom, which is an online video conference platform. Zoom is free to use, easy to access and allows a wide range of opportunities for you to participate and interact with the speaker and/ or other participants in these live events. For example you can talk in small groups with other participants in “breakout rooms”.


There will be up to 8 live calls per day, all of them being recorded and available for download for a week after the event. That means you can choose to join the live event or listen and re-listen to the recording of any session at a time that is convenient for you.


If you want to know more about Zoom, how to use it and its possibilities and limitations, you can watch the following introductory video…but basically, it’s free and easy.

How to use Zoom video

Requirements

• The course will not be athletic and all bodies are very welcome

• No previous experience of embodied work is required

• It’s recommended to have a Facebook account as discussion and some resources will be posted there

• A good internet connection helps with Zoom and break-out discussions if you can make the calls live

• Remember calls will be recorded and available for one week if you can’t make the actual calls.
