Radical Wholeness Weekend Workshop Traverse City, MI
Our culture encourages us to live in our heads, exiled from the grounded, subtle intelligence of the body. The simple practices of this workshop empower the journey back home to your wholeness.
The Radical Wholeness Workshop offers you a safe, provocative, fascinating play space in which to begin the journey home to the greatest teacher you will ever know: your body.
September 21-September 22
10am - 5pm both days.
Come Home to The Body
The Radical Wholeness workshop is a form of play that moves through a series of deliberate, gentle practices that help expose and soften the limiting patterns in which we are all entangled.
To better understand what that looks like: the workshop is not about listening to the body, it's about listening to the world through the body. It's not about subduing the brilliant intelligence in the head, it's about bringing it into balanced unity with the body's intelligence. It's not just about being present in the body, it's about escaping the frenzied self-consciousness of our culture and attuning to the spacious ease and grace of the Present, with which you are in continuous exchange. All that, and it's fun, too!
Developed as an experiential complement to Shepherd’s groundbreaking book, Radical Wholeness, this workshop offers skills and practices to last a lifetime. As they help you deepen into the unified intelligence of your being, you'll feel yourself carried into the intimacy of the world. An experience of radical wholeness is simply an experience of your wholeness, rooted in the nourishment of the Present.
Philip Shepherd travels the world offering this popular workshop and this is a unique opportunity to work with him directly in Traverse City.
Philip Shepherd is recognized as an international authority on embodiment. He developed The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), a unique set of practices for uniting the anxious, restless pace of the intelligence in the head with the deep, present and connected intelligence of the body. His first book, New Self, New World: Recovering Our Senses in the Twenty-first Century, drew on a lifetime of research and experience and was widely acclaimed for its original vision. Philip’s insights have been shaped by his adventures as a teenager, when he cycled alone through Europe, the Middle East, India and Japan; by his deep commitment to and studies of bodywork; by his experiences as an actor, playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto; and by a burning desire for freedom that has illuminated his entire life. Philip spends much of his time giving TEPP workshops and talks around the world, and is training and certifying others to teach his work. When not traveling, he lives with his wife in a quiet, car-free community in Toronto in a home they designed and built.
