Embodied Awareness

The Art of Listening and Presence

2.5-Day Course, 18 Hours, Prerequisite: None

"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is. When we make that kind of deep bow to the soul of a suffering person, our respect reinforces the soul’s healing resources, the only resources that can help the sufferer make it through." - Parker Palmer

This retreat is for those desiring greater presence with themselves and others, to be able to listen on a deeper level and to feel more aware, accepting and safer in your own body.


It is especially important for those desiring to practice craniosacral work and although it is open to everyone, it was designed as a precursor to Craniosacral Core Practices.

  • Be more present in your own body; experience how embodied awareness truly feels.

  • Learn how to pause and be present in the most challenging moments.

  • Learn to be more present and connected with others on a deeper level.

  • Practice listening and communicating with others so that they feel deeply heard and respected.

  • Examine the core beliefs, stories and traumatic imprints that get in the way of you being truly present.

  • Learn strategies for having embodied presence with a history of trauma.

  • Return home with greater calmness, clarity and ease being in the present moment.

“The safety, integrity and kindness of the space Michael and all the attendees created in the course was beautiful and I came away feeling truly in my body for the first time in my life.  I am now able to really listen to my family, my friends and my clients and offer the kind of presence and support they deserve. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be with those I love on a deeper level.” – Elissa

"Thanks for such a lovely 4 days together practicing divine embodied presence.  To feel safe in ones body is necessary for so many reasons.  I especially enjoyed working on connecting with others and my environment with more presence and authentic beingness.  Looking forward now to practising and becoming grounded in this modality. Many thanks for this great course and content." - KA 

“Michael’s Embodied Awareness course was a profound journey to self. I gained a deeper acceptance and awareness of myself and others. I felt held, seen, and safe throughout the duration of the course. The course content was extremely engaging and the online space was encouraging, trusting and supportive. I highly recommend this self empowering course.” - Sage
