WHO & WHAT
Embodiment Field is a body of work developed over 30 years by Leralee Whittle. Offerings include (un) Threading dance and movement and Somatic Coherence education, performance, video art and embodiment sessions.
In Embodiment Field processes we work in “expanded embodiment”. EF practices engage the power of relational thinking. When we understand inter-relations of Body-Mind, Source, Earth, Field and other, relational intelligence grows. Out of this intelligence we source potential to enter new territories in art making or collaborate on just about anything in a way that’s effortless and efficacious.
Attention is one of the benefits of working with heightened connectivity. It invites us to extend presence in and with the field. Attention becomes known to us through embodiment processes in which our sense of time and space heightens. We experience composing, performing, communicating, healing or dancing as phenomena arising out of our “expansive nature” beyond just body-mind and being in the zone seemingly out of nowhere.
E F cross-pollinates with other professionals in the embodiment field, including, but not limited to dance, somatics, quantum field studies, philosophy, ethics, Rock n’Roll performance, performance studies, quantum physics, high performance sports, healing, shamanism, transpersonal psychology, Taoist Chi-Kung, energy medicine and more.
Real world actions matter. Relational thinking and embodiment practices give you tools to be in the world, but not of it, so presence and empathy are naturally extended to other, in the “potentialized” moment.
Life affirming practices?
Intellectually, we know attention must extend beyond anthropocentric interests. Our future and that of other species depends on it. We need experiences that grow empathy through a sense of connectivity. Intellect alone doesn’t do it. Embodiment Field practices impact quality of life through re-educating human and humanity- through embodiment that makes us present and collaborative- with all who share the planet.
The knowledge we teach counters death affirming practices such as plundering the earth for profit. We offer practices that fuel us to connect with inherent wealth, including a relationship with the planet. Through practice, actions become more humane and new possibilities in communication arise. More and more people are finding ways to exercise social response-ability whether creating harmony, connecting art and life or extending empathy to others.
