The Embodiment Conference: A Conversation With Brooke McNamara, Mark Walsh, Roma Pijlman and Philip Shepherd

In this episode, Carl speaks with Mark Walsh, Brooke McNamara, Roma Pijlman, and Philip Shepherd about the upcoming free online Embodiment Conference, and we explore the necessity of embodiment in these times.  The Embodiment Conference runs from October 14-25, 2020, and features many guests we have enjoyed hosting on this podcast, including Charles Eisenstein, Bayo Akomolafe, Diane Musho Hamilton Roshi, Loch Kelly, David Abram, Russell Delman, Philip Shepherd, Brooke McNamara, along with many other luminaries of the embodiment world including Gabor Mate, Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen, Tara Brach, Peter Levine and many many more.
In this conversation, we speak about the Conference and the many different channels and opportunities for learning the conference offers. We also explore why embodiment is so essential for these particular times. We speak about embodiment in relation to integration, conflict, and healing. The call begins with a short guided practice from Philip and a poem from Brooke.
