We are 19 days from the shortest day of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere). The darkness is literally growing day by day, a sign that winter is here. Yet when you think of December, darkness is rarely the first thing that comes to mind. It’s parties, and gatherings, and many festivities, sprinkled with … Continue reading An Embodiment Practice for Winter: Embracing the Dark
I’m sitting in my friend’s gorgeous apartment overlooking South London on a Friday night. My body is exhausted from a full day of embodiment work with two amazing women. My heart is full from witnessing the fullest expression of themselves. Doing this work I get confronted.
