For this month’s regular open-audience, open-discussion “Ask Us Anything” — continuing discussions about meditation and related topics — Insight Timer teacher Lydia Grace rejoins Denny and I along with friend and practitioner Elizabeth Foster for a roundtable about embodiment coaching.

After introductions we speak much about the body and embodiment, especially in relation to experience and working with others. We continue sharing embodiment wisdom and beyond:

  • social engagement system
  • “science of safety”
  • dysregulation of nervous system
  • wisdom of the body
  • Lydia’s body speak method
  • holding space, mediation, safety, consent, trauma
  • shame, guilt and self-doubt
  • intuition
  • being present to whatever is happening in the moment
  • pain and despair

  • cellular memory and debris
  • “A.B.C. — A Bigger Container” teaching by Charlotte Joko Beck via Jill Shepherd
  • self-honor, self-respect, self-validation, worthiness
  • Can you love yourself exactly as you are right now, equal to the idealized version you wish you were; have been in the past; or are desperately trying to become?
  • karma, thoughts, memory, electrochemical interactions
  • yin treasure organs and yang vessel organs and energies
  • the connection of “between cells” to the “triple warmer” meridian
  • Eastern traditions knowing body through deep meditation and Western through dissecting cadavers
  • intuiting body intelligence, body talk, body messages, tailoring information to/for various clients
  • resurfacing of repressed memories via body work and presence
  • intergenerational epigenetics

  • balancing superfluous story creation with using story to understand, relate with, and navigate in the world
  • leveraging devastation to awaken to deep truth within
  • innocence
  • sharing experience to assist with material and spiritual liberation
