7-SESSION SERIES DESCRIPTION

You are made of more than 37 trillion cells filled with innate wisdom. Being able to access and apply your whole-body intelligence — rather than using your intellect alone — can make a huge difference in your effectiveness, your well-being, and your ability to bring your dreams into reality.

When you're in touch with your whole-body intelligence you feel more confident and connected. You think more clearly and creatively. You’re more emotionally intelligent and you're able to relate with others more easily and genuinely. This allows you to create what you really want in your life.

In this series, you'll learn valuable skills you can use lifelong to:

• Listen and respond to the signals and cues from your body

• Experience a deeper connection with yourself and others

• Transform stress, fear and other difficult emotions

• Change self-sabotaging beliefs stored in your body

• Make decisions and solve problems with greater ease

• Create what you really want in your relationships and life


SESSION 1
Awakening Your Whole-Body Intelligence

We've inherited a 2000+ year human legacy that has taught us to deny, be ashamed of and even fear what we feel in our bodies.

When you're disconnected from your body’s intelligence, unconscious habits and patterns take over. These drain your energy and cause physical and emotional stress. Your health, relationships and work suffer. Reconnecting with your whole-body intelligence is the solution.

In this session, you'll learn:

How you were taught to disconnect from your body and it's wisdom

How to make a new commitment to your whole-body intelligence

The simple body awareness practice that awakens the intelligence in your cells

How to tune in to your key body sensation — and what it’s communicating to you


SESSION 2
What Your Body Is Telling You

In your body, there are threes specific zones — upper back and neck, chest and throat, and stomach area — that give you essential information about what you’re feeling and what you need.

These zones speak to you through sensations. Ignoring or failing to notice these sensations can cost you your health and happiness. Being aware of these sensations — and the needs they communicate — allows you to create what you really want in your relationships and life.

In this session you’ll learn:

The cost of ignoring your anger, fear, sadness and longing — and why your body wants you to know what you feel

The three main feeling zones of your body — and the specific sensations through which they speak to you

The crucial needs your feeling zones communicate to you — and how to meet those needs

How to use your body sensations and feelings to communicate more genuinely in your close relationships


SESSION 3
Uncovering Your Essence & Befriending Your Personas

You were born connected with the whole-body intelligence of your essence — who you really are. But as a child you developed personas — or false selves — in order to cope and survive.

These personas — such as perfectionist, people-pleaser, critic, control freak, caretaker, or loner — overshadow your essence and separate you from your whole-body intelligence. They limit your awareness, breathing, movement and self-expression — and cause you to relate with others in stressful, unsatisfying ways.

By identifying and befriending your personas, you can reconnect with your whole-body intelligence and live from your essence again.

In this session, you'll learn:

The personas you formed to cope as a child — and how they unconsciously restrict you in your life and relationships today

How your essence feels in your body — and allows your self-expression and happiness to expand

How you can shift from persona to essence in any moment — for more creativity, love and fun

How to use the positive aspects of your personas — without getting trapped in their limitations


SESSION 4
Transforming Your Stress & Fear

Our bodies aren't designed to handle the amount of stress we’re experiencing in our rapidly-changing, unpredictable world. The more stress you feel, the more likely you are to be overwhelmed by fear and other troublesome feelings.

Fear causes you to contract. You quickly lose touch with your body’s deep intelligence. You can’t think clearly and choices and possibilities disappear.

Having reliable skills you can use to release stress and fear — and reconnect with your whole-body intelligence on-the-spot — allows you to respond creatively to anything while being as healthy as you can be.

In this session, you'll learn:

How to recognize and address the first signs of stress in your body

How to use your awareness, breath and movement to release stress from your body as it appears

The Four Fear Melters — simple, powerful moves that allow you to shift from fear to flow in any situation

An advanced practice for transforming fear, anger, sadness and other upsetting feelings


SESSION 5
Moving Into Clarity & Creativity

Research shows that lack of movement or moving in habitual patterns creates physical and mental stress. It also prevents the formation of new neural connections in our brains and bodies that lead to new possibilities in our lives.

Research also shows that simple changes in posture and movement allow us to feel better, think more clearly, be more effective and discover new possibilities in whatever we’re doing.

Knowing how to shift and move your body in ways that open your flow of whole-body intelligence can enhance every aspect of your life.

In this session, you'll learn:

Why automatic, habitual movements lead to low energy, feeling stuck and a loss of creativity

How to make simple changes in your posture and movement — for more aliveness, creativity and flow

How to make decisions more easily -- by recognizing your inner body signals for “yes” and “no”

Ways to use your whole-body intelligence to get unstuck and move forward in your life


SESSION 6
Transforming Your Self-Sabotaging Beliefs

Your body holds cellular memories of everything you've experienced in your life. Some of those experiences may have caused you to create beliefs which are unconsciously sabotaging you in your life today.

Beliefs such as "I'm not smart enough," "I need to stay small to stay safe,” “If I get close to someone, I’ll be abandoned," can cause you to think, feel and act in ways that keep you stuck. Until these beliefs are brought into awareness and changed, they can keep you from creating what you really want in your relationships and life.

In this session, you'll learn:

How you absorbed and created self-sabotaging beliefs as a child

How and where your self-sabotaging beliefs are stored in your body

How to change the self-sabotaging beliefs that limit your relationships and life

How to embody new beliefs for your full happiness and evolution


SESSION 7
Solving Your Upper Limits Problem -- And Expanding In Happiness & Success

Each of us has an inner thermostat setting for how much happiness, love, success and money we allow ourselves to experience. When we go past that limit, we unconsciously do something to sabotage/bring ourselves down so we feel more secure.

Upper limits behaviors include worrying, criticizing, creating conflict or drama, getting sick or having an accident, to doing something else to bring yourself back down to a more familiar level.

Until you're able to identify and change your upper limits behaviors, you'll only experience a fraction of the happiness, creativity and success that's possible for you.

In this session, you'll learn:

How you were taught to stop yourself from feeling good

How to identify your upper limits behaviors -- the ways you sabotage your happiness and success

How to shift your upper limits -- and continue expanding in happiness and success

How to use your whole-body intelligence to create what you really want
