Phillip Shepherd on reconnecting with self and the world through our bodies
Our culture encourages us to live in our heads, exiled from the grounded, subtle intelligence of the body.
Welcome to episode NUMBER 73 of The Stacey June Show.
Enlightening is the only way to describe this conversation between Stace and Philip Shepherd. Phillip is recognised as an international authority on embodiment. His unique techniques have been developed to transform our disconnected experience of self and world, and are based on the vision articulated in his celebrated books, New Self, New World (2010) and Radical Wholeness (Nov 2017). He developed the practices of TEPP to help people reunite the thinking of the head with the deep, present and calm intelligence of the body. Unlike the prevailing view of embodiment – which involves sitting in the head and ‘listening to your body’ – Philip’s approach helps you listen to the world through the body. What the body most deeply understands is that it belongs to the world. When our thinking is tempered by that understanding, we discover companionship in the world rather than alienation; we recognise guidance where before we saw only obstacles; and we ground ourselves in the security of being, rather than seeking to build security for ourselves with symbols of external value. Ultimately, TEPP is about coming home to yourself.
