Feeling over Thinking
Feminine Embodiment Coaching focuses on depth, feeling – using the internal felt sense – and an internal focus. The internal felt sense can be difficult to describe in words – but it lies at the root of our mental, physical, energetic and emotional bodies. Our ability to be aware of and sensitive to these bodies and the sensations at the root of them contribute to our ability to experience the internal felt sense more intimately.
So, we’ll be focusing on what it is you are feeling inside of your body – rather than thinking your way through a challenge or desire. Your body is so wise, and holds the answers you seek – but often we are taught to live up in our heads and ignore our bodies. I’ll be there to guide you and hold space for you to explore what your body wishes to reveal to you. I won’t be telling you what to do or giving you solutions or answers – you already know. But I will be there to help you uncover this wisdom.
Sessions are also about allowing ourselves the time and space to really feel what is going on for us. This is why we focus on depth and not direction during the session. Rather than striving to move forward, there is movement into the layers surrounding your challenge or desire. It can also be new for us to actually stop for a second and focus on the internal sensations in our bodies. It is very normal to find it difficult to describe or to feel as though there is nothing or there is numbness. This is all ok and so very welcome. As we go through life we can build up layer upon layer of ‘armour’ to protect ourselves from the very tender feelings that we have. These sessions provide a held space for you to begin unravelling these layers so you can get to the tender hearted truth of YOU.
What to expect
You can expect invitations into the four pillars or embodiment – awareness, breath, movement and sound. These are our vehicles to experience the internal felt sense with greater sensitivity. I will also invite you to close your eyes if it feels safe for you to do so for most of the session, as this helps you maintain an internal orientation and to focus on what you are feeling rather than what you are thinking.
To get the most out of your session
I am all about depth, vulnerability and the juicy stuff. In order for you to get the most out of this session, please come with a challenge that you have been experiencing recently, or a goal or desire that you are working towards or would like to work towards. In order for us to move through the layers, it does ask for some vulnerability and a willingness to feel what arises. I will continue to guide you back to your body if needed so we can unearth what your body is calling to unearth. Be willing to move and make sound. Now, I know making sound can be confronting and uncomfortable for many of us – believe me, I get it!! I too, will be making sounds throughout the session and you are always welcome to mute yourself during these bits if that helps.
So how does the feminine come into it?
