Philip’s workshop helps you to encounter a very direct connection to yourself and the world in a very playful as well as meditative way… our culture’s misconceptions and subsequent dissociative patterns are made conscious in an incredibly fluent process.

The term ‘workshop’ is so lacking in conveying the richness of this weekend; it was an experience of the core of my Being being felt, experienced and deeply embraced.

An Invitation

The gift of embodiment grounds your life in a deeper intelligence – one that enables you to attune to the life of the world around you. But the body’s exquisite sensitivity to that life has been dulled by a culture that trains us to live in our heads.

This internationally acclaimed workshop helps you gently recognise within yourself the learned patterns that distract you from your body, and shows you how to soften beyond them. By deepening into your body, you come home not just to your life, but to a sensitivity that opens you to the subtle harmonies of all life. And at the close of the workshop you will carry with you a set of unique, effective practices and skills to serve you for a lifetime.

Join Philip Shepherd in a wonderful and intimate setting in Devon as together we open to the intelligence of our body, going beyond our perceptions of its boundary, to remember and be guided by the subtle forces of nature and intelligence of all life.

Your Guides

Philip Shepherd is recognized as a leader in the global embodiment movement. He is the creator of The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), which he developed over 40 years of teaching embodiment practices, and shares worldwide in both in workshops and Facilitators Trainings. TEPP uniquely combines the two resources necessary for embodiment: effective practices, and a deep understanding of our culture’s blind spots, which tend to keep us in our heads. TEPP is based on Philip’s two books – Radical Wholeness and New Self, New World – which articulate the causes, perils and challenges of our culture’s disembodiment. Philip’s personal journey to embodiment includes cycling alone as a teenager through Europe, the Middle East, Iran, India and Japan; studying classical Japanese Noh Theater; co-founding an interdisciplinary theatre company; writing two internationally produced plays and a television documentary; and playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto. In the non-Covid world, he travels the world sharing workshops and running year-long Facilitators Trainings with his co-director and wife Allyson Woodrooffe. His website and online courses are found at EmbodiedPresent.com, and he has a new book, Deep Fitness, coming out on October 12, 2021, which he co-authored with Andrei Yakovenko.
