In this class, we’ll examine the difference between a first-person observation of the body (somatic) vs a third-person observation of the body (medicine). At Allbodies, we call the first-person observation “embodiment”.
Most of us are comfortable leaving it to the medical community to tell us what’s happening inside. (Totally cool… praise the gods for modern medicine…) But, first-person observation is very cool, too! It is immediately factual and we are the ONLY observers who can retrieve the data. Yet, as a society, we are generally inexperienced with practicing and trusting our first-person observations.
In class, Dr. Jeevan Singh will lead us through somatic exercises to practice observing our bodies and understanding their messages. We’ll discuss how embodiment (or lack thereof) affects our relationships to ourselves and others, shows up in every action we take, and translates as consent. All participants will leave class with a sharpened set of tools for observing, interpreting and advocating on behalf of our bodies. SEE YOU IN CLASS!
