An embodied mind is more than a functioning brain. Open Floor Movement Practice considers the mind to be as real and inseparable to embodiment as any other dimension.

Being mentally resourced is the foundation for finding and tapping into our common knowledge.

Common Knowledge is the capacity to receive wisdom in the form of cognition, intuition, imagination and insight.  

When the aspects of the mind are consciously embodied, we find wisdom that serves not only the self but all our relationships. We find what wisdom we share or what wisdom we generate together as a collective.

In this immersion you will come away with insights and skills to have a fully embodied mind. This includes:

  • Having an integrated, felt sense of the brain’s interpretations, interactions, and interplay with consciousness
  • A mind that is creative, intuitive, imaginative, inventive, insightful, mindful, articulate, discerning, clear, aware, and astute
  • A mind that is open to the vastness of knowledge, intuition, and imagination, while still connected to body and heart
  • Being able to dance the energy and texture of thoughts, images from nature, dreams, mythology, and archetypes
  • The ability to focus on a sensation, a movement, a person, a space, and to be receptive to the vastness of the mind beyond our own immediate perceptions — to create space for insights
  • Creating bridges between learning about the body, the emotions, and the mind in books and other mediums and bringing that knowledge into the movement and the experience of the body
  • Having a mind that knows how to use intention
