Embodiment and Pain

An Embodiment Conference one-day event.

Saturday 13 June

This day-long event starts at 8.30am UK on Saturday 13  June 2020 online on Zoom (please go here to convert to your local time). You can see the schedule here

Pain which lasts for longer than might typically be expected is known as chronic pain. Chronic pain may originate from various sources within the nervous system and can be notoriously difficult to treat. An interdisciplinary approach incorporating various modalities is often needed to provide relief to those suffering from chronic pain.

The Embodiment Conference is giving everyone the opportunity to learn more about the root causes of pain along with various management and treatment options to heal and improve the quality of life of those suffering. We have extensive experience working online, and a large and diverse team of facilitators.

Some of the key topics that will be explored by world-renowned experts include:
  • How to identify chronic pain
  • The science behind pain
  • Various modalities that exist to treat pain
  • Links between trauma and pain
  • Using mindfulness and subtle movement to heal
  • Approaching challenges with a playful attitude
  • How movement can re-train the nervous system
  • The psychology of pain

The event will be recorded and calls will be available on the resources page for 24hrs after being uploaded, and as a package to buy on the shop soon after the event.

This online event is sponsored by The Embodiment Conference.

An online conference and more than that…
a kickstart to a global movement.

Embodiment is about making friends with your body, and feeling at home in your skin. The conference will give you free access to the top teachers in the field, offer a community of support, and be a huge global party to be remembered.

Embodiment is an antidote to the violence, disconnection and overwhelm caused by numbing, and a return to our shared humanity. For this reason, ​our goal is to make the 20’s the embodiment decade​,​ and help humanity thrive. The Embodiment Conference is a university, a fiesta and a catalyst. In a cynical age this is a bold vision, yes, but if not now when?

TEC will again be a uniquely rich opportunity for diverse learning, and will not only help you to come home to the anchor of your body in a chaotic world: to energise and inspire you personally, but also to connect with others for whom the body matters too. TEC will use global online community, to create local communities and real-world action.

Participants have an opportunity not just to get a bunch of information, but to clarify and digest that into wisdom. Through this event you can:

• Learn from the leaders and innovators in the field

• Gain deep personal insights (we will provide a platform to help with this)

• Deepen and reboot your own practice

• Easily learn about many new areas

• Build real relationships and gain a community of support that will continue long
after the event (online and in-person).

• Have a really good time doing all this 🙂

Making embodied wisdom available to everyone, everywhere, free of charge.

The Embodiment Conference 2020

The conference is back…bigger but easier

TEC2020 has 1000 presenters, ordered into 10 channels, and we have a clever system so you can easily find what you’ll most love.

Yes 1000! We expect 100,000+ people to attend and this may actually be the largest educational event in human history. Given the huge amount on offer and that most of us are busy people, some have asked us already how we suggest accessing the feast! Here are some options:

• Just watch the “main stage” channel where 3 of the best known presenters will be daily.

• Book some time off and treat it like a face-to-face conference! We’ll be releasing the schedule weeks in advance so you can plan if you like to be organised.

• Let us pick two talks a day for you, just tell us your main area of interest and time zone and we’ll send you a “best of” recommendations

• Dip in and out randomly simply by clicking the various channels (like having the best TV ever for 12 days)

• See what’s “hot” on the Facebook group

• Buy the recordings and never need Netflix again!

The conference is totally FREE
(only recordings cost money to cover our expenses).

After subscribing you will receive a welcome email and monthly newsletters.
