Embodiment is, in it’s simplest form, living in the body. Yes, you technically always live in your body (until maybe, many say, when you die). However, how often can you feel your feet touching the ground? Do you eat when you’re hungry and drink when you’re thirsty? Do you notice how your body feels after having a conversation with someone you like? How about with someone you’re struggling with? All of these things (and many more) are part of embodiment - inhabiting your body in the fullest and most authentic way possible, listening to what it has to teach you, and using that wisdom to make the best choices for you and your life.
Okay, so what is coaching? You may have heard of other kinds of coaches (business coaches, life coaches, even sports coaches). All coaches have some things in common: they support you in finding ways to reach concrete goals or intentions, typically ones that you created. Coaching relationships are often short term (shorter term than, say, a mentor or therapist) and focused on the present (rather than the past or future). Coaches may meet with you one on one, check in regularly through email or phone to see how far you’ve come with a certain goal, provide you with opportunities to practice manifesting your intentions, connect you with like-minded others, suggest resources for reaching your goals (books, podcasts, activities, etc.), and more.
Therefore, an Embodiment Coach is someone who supports you in creating ways of living more consciously and consistently in your body, embracing the present moment, setting intentions and goals from this embodied space, and listening to and following the wisdom your body has to share with you!
Other things you might address with an Embodiment Coach:
What are your favorite things about yourself and how can you celebrate those daily? In what ways does your body assist you in manifesting your dreams? What are your priorities and how do you center them? How do you feel in your relationships, in your living situation, with the ways you spend your time? How can you create time to do the things you dream of doing before you die? How can you love yourself more? What can you do to stop negative self talk? What are some ways to practice self care that don’t cost a lot of money? How can you love your body when you don’t like it? What can you do to build trust with your body and your decisions?
