The EarthBody Studies

The Body is our Home, just like Earth is our Home.

This self-study online course, composed of Embodiment & Nature Connection practices, serves to bring you home.

The EarthBody Studies give you the framework to explore your relationship with your body and nature and let you experience, how you can use these two sources — Body & Earth — and your intuitive interaction with them, to become a grounding & centering practice in your everyday life, just like a yoga or meditation.

While it carries the title “online course” none of the exercises are actually done online or in front of your computer, no worries. The course consists of exercises and instructions, in audio & text form, that guide you step by step to cultivate a vivid sense of body-awareness and into an intuitive way of interacting with your own body, as well as inviting you to sharpen your perception and understanding of the natural world in your surrounding, wherever you are.

Contraindication

Although the shared practices are very simple, some of them can have a profound effect. If you suffer of severe trauma or any kind of mental disorder, unsure if you would be able to care for yourself if challenging emotions or memories arose, I advise against from doing this course without supervision. If you are in treatment, I recommend discussing with your therapist which of the exercises are suitable for you.
