International embodiment expert Philip Shepherd helps you find more presence in your life, deepen your experience of self and explore the intelligence of your body in this Introductory Course, which includes 4 podcasts and 7 embodiment practices.
If so, the problem isn't with you, it's with our culture. We are taught by it to deeply disconnect from ourselves, from each other and from the world around us. When you experience a reconnection with the body, your life opens in ways you might not have ever imagined.
How and why the embodied present process was developed
The 'why' traces back to my teenage years, when I was living in a world that didn't make sense to me – a world in which the adults seemed to be stuck in roles that barely left them room to breathe.
I knew the same fate awaited me if I remained. At the age of eighteen I left my home in Toronto, went to England, bought a bicycle, and headed off on it for Japan. For two years I moved through cultures vastly different from my own - each of them luminous, and each of them limited. The only time I experienced culture shock was when I returned home. That deeply familiar world now seemed arbitrary and bizarre. On my round-the-world journey I'd gained the gift I needed; the ability to question the invisible assumptions of my own culture.
My questioning grew into a quest
Over decades I explored and tested and trained, seeking to bring into clarity for myself the ways in which our industrialized, patriarchal, top-down, dominating culture stood like a jailer over the most natural impulses of my life – and how it had seeded into my nervous system prohibitions against the ease and harmony of my being.
Seeking the freedom that would enable me to connect with and live my deepest truth, I developed the practices that I call TEPP. In one form or another, I’ve taught and refined these practices for over thirty years. They’ve helped thousands reconnect with the vital presence of their own lives by helping them reconnect with their body’s intelligence. My hope is that these practices will similarly help you.
continue trying to out-think your problems, repeating positive affirmations, spending years in therapy, meditating doggedly, reading hundreds of books.
