The Authentic Warrior Embodiment process is receiving a lot of positive attention from highly experienced Trauma Therapists lately…
SPINE. HIPS. HEART.
These are the parts of the 'anatomy' I'll be speaking about on the 15th of Nov.
And my partner in crime Andrea Balboni will have her own body parts she'll be sharing her deep wisdom on.
Your spine is like a snake that lives inside your body. It can move in so many ways - ways in which, if you're like 99% of the world - are not fully exploring. These different ways of moving elicit different feelings - feelings you probably don't experience often.
Your hips are the seat for your physical centre, and your 'gut-brain'. Like the spine (and of course physically 'related' to your spine) they are able to move in multiple ways that most people (especially us 'Western' folk) are unable feel into. Not because we inherently can't, but because our cultural conditioning hasn't facilitated it. But like with most things, we can train ourselves in this area.
Your heart is more than just an organ that pumps blood around your body. It is capable of sending and receiving. It can transmit energy to someone else, and it can act as a sense-organ for feeling into another. We often disconnect from our heart, because it's also where we feel our greatest pain. Disconnecting from the heart in sex and intimacy, however, can be incredibly harmful to both parties. Conversely, it's heart-connection that makes for life-changing intimate encounters.
The practices I'll be covering in this talk have up until now only been something I share in my private coaching. And I'm not really a 'sexuality coach' (at least in my 'branding').
So it feels a bit strange. Esp considering that my path into working with the body on this level was through self-defence and martial arts.
The spine and hips, in particular, I dove into as a subject because I wanted to master the bio-mechanics of punching!
Literally, I wanted to teach smaller people how to generate enough force to knock out a larger and stronger opponent. So with some inspiration from my mentor in unarmed combat, which coincided with my studying for my Level 3 in Anatomy and Physiology, I went deep into working with my own body.
And now here I am several years later giving a talk alongside a Sex Coach for a company that also hosts sex parties for the 'elite'.
I've stopped asking the universe why it wants me to go down certain paths. I just say yes!
Hope to see you there!
Human beings, masculine ones especially, store tension in the body and often in the front of their bodies. Frowning, squinting, raising the eyebrows, grimacing, clenching the jaw and grinding the teeth – emotional tension manifested in the muscles of the face and neck. Slouching and rounded shoulders, this is tightness in the chest and abdominal region and even the hips...
Feminine energy is expansive, flowing and fluctuating, whereas the masculine is central, still and consistent. For men who have masculinity at their core, living from this place is vitally important. Leaning to 'be in your masculine' is what will allow you to feel that you are living true to your identity and will provide the energetic balance to your intimate relationship and even allow your children to feel secure in your presence.
