Intelligence of the Body in Boston

I am honoured to be invited to Down Under Yoga in Boston to present The Intelligence of the Body on September 25th and 26th.  We will be learning why it is so important to pay attention to little signals in the body that are our unique telephone call inviting us to grow.  We will have some experiences of what our phone call feels like and practice bringing warm interest and non-judgment to what we find inside.

I will follow up after the workshops to share our experiences of  listening to our phone call, answering the body’s question “Am I safe?” and being moved by the truth of our emotions…  All with the aim of letting ourselves matter, so we can grow.

  1. Hi Sandra, I’m glad you are active again on your blog! What you teach people is really unique, I never understood how important it is to learn how to be with yourself, it really helped me a lot! I live in Europe so I can’t participate in the workshop, but will you be uploading more material here or on youtube?

    • Hi Tina, thank you for your feedback! I am so glad you’ve been able to use my videos to help you be more present with yourself. The key to presence is always in the body, in being precisely aware of sensations of anxiety (such as muscle tension and agitation), and bringing your warm interest and non-judgment to your sensations as you stay with that discomfort. That experience of coming home to the body while feeling anxious arousal, repeated over time, rewires your brain so you can approach life with more of your real self available. I am working on more content both for YouTube and also an online course, which I am hoping to have together by early next year. I wish you the best on your journey and I am grateful for your kind words. Warmly, Sandra
