Recovering our senses in the 21st Century
This evening at the Buddha Bag Meeting, we have the wonderful and inspiring Philip Shepherd, over all the way from Canada, Philip is recognised as an international authority on embodiment. His unique techniques have been developed to transform our experience of self and world, and are based on the vision articulated in his celebrated book, New Self, New World.
The approach he takes heals the frantic, restless pace of the intelligence in the head, which tends to run on overdrive, by uniting it with the deep, present and calm intelligence of the body.This is an antidote to the prevailing view of embodiment, which involves sitting in the head and ‘listening to the body’; by contrast, Philip’s approach helps us listen to the world through the body. His personal path to understanding has been shaped by his adventures as a teenager, when he cycled alone through Europe, the Middle East, India and Japan; by his deep commitment to and studies of bodywork; by his experiences as an actor, playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto; and by the burning desire for freedom that has illuminated his entire life.Come and find out more about the brain in your belly, radical wholeness and recovering our senses at the Buddha Bag Meeting. And if you’re hungry for more, Philip is running two workshops, one in Dublin, which is filling up so you may need to be quick in booking and one in Galway.
