We’ve all been raised in a disembodied world — sitting endless hours at our desks, squinting at screens and disconnected from ALL of our senses while relying predominantly on learning through our intellect.

Too often, we think of our bodies like machines we need to “maintain” so that we can keep going. (Instead of honoring them as divine expressions of our wondrous universe and the source of loving presence that allows us to fully engage in our lives.)

The result? We often feel anxious, uninspired and depleted. We may gain weight or develop chronic health problems. And we lose our authentic connection with ourselves, our community and our environment.

The Body Intelligence Summit series is here to shift all that — helping you access new levels of vitality, creativity and joy by becoming more deeply and deliciously embodied.

The truth is that your body holds vast wisdom and intelligence — from the precise communication of your nervous system, to the power of your muscles, to the distributed sensitivity of your skin.

And in this series, you’ll discover new information that shows that this intelligence extends far beyond your body.

When you learn to cultivate this Body Intelligence (“BQ”), you’ll experience a powerful correlation between your body’s natural, deep wisdom and your ability to positively influence the world around you — impacting choices in your daily life, your relationships and your work.

Register and you’ll receive free recordings from top Body Intelligence experts who are illuminating how intricately creative, wonderfully harmonious and profoundly connected your body really is!

Loving Your Body, Living Your Dreams & Leading the Change

We are blessed to have all the magic and wonder of the huge universe right here in our “small” bodies — and operating mostly without any attention or action on our part!

What happens, though, when you DO bring conscious awareness to your breath, your movement and your energy? How much more powerful can you become? How much more effective? And how much more connection can you experience with others and your environment?

The next great frontier for us all is to master our Body Intelligence. Our society has recently accepted that Emotional Intelligence is an essential key for success in life; now, we’re realizing that our intelligence encompasses not only our brains and our emotions, but our entire body (plus the earth beneath our feet!).

This awareness liberates us from all the rigidities, discomfort and disease that come from a limited way of relating to our bodies and interacting with the world around us.

When you have mastered Body Intelligence, you radiate more life force, joy and vitality. You’re more creative. You have more fulfilling relationships. You’re more healthy, resilient and physically skilled. And you’re more able to live your dreams AND inspire positive change in the world as well.

By boosting our BQ, we not only experience more interconnection with ALL life, we also free ourselves from our “fear addiction” and become empowered to step into our highest potential from a deeply rooted place of peace and presence.

Here’s a before and after chart to see what happens as you gain Body Intelligence:

Before Body Intelligence After Body Intelligence
Separation Embodied sense of love
Disconnection Interconnection with ALL
Depleted Energized
Rigid Fluid & flowing
Uninspired Powerfully generative
Working hard Joyful ease
Stress & Anxiety Calm
Chronic illness Radiant health
Overburdened “Play-full”
Adrenal fatigue Relaxed energy
Fear addiction Loving presence

Are You Ready to Say “Yes” to Greater Body Intelligence?

We’re excited to bring you the world’s leading experts in this emerging field to help you make powerful changes and access your body’s wisdom, enabling you to live more fully in the present moment and make your greatest contribution to the world.

The benefits will be profound — not only on a personal level, but professionally as well. This series is not just for personal growth; it’s also to activate and mobilize a whole new field of inquiry.

Register for free and you’ll be notified of our next live event where you can join doctors, dancers, bodyworkers, brain scientists, leading experts (and more!) for this exciting exploration.

For All Levels

Whatever your level of BQ, the speakers in The Body Intelligence Summit series can help you go to go further — drawing from neurobiology, breathwork, dance and transformational healing modalities — to unleash your undiscovered potential.

If you’re sedentary, anxious or feeling uninspired, you’ll discover a path to vitality and joy. And if you’re a yoga teacher, you’ll learn far more about the intricacies of accessing and working with the body’s native intelligence and expanding awareness to your larger community.
