The EarthBody Studies

The Body is our Home, just like the 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 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.

6-week group program

Starting 9th of November 2020

In early November the doors will open to a guided journey through the EarthBody Studies.

Over a period of 6 weeks, a group of participants will move through the EarthBody Studies and meet online via Zoom once a week. While you undertake the nature connection exercises alone on site — Once a week we will meet in community, to share our experiences, to move, breathe and process together.


If you are longing for a safe space to revel in warm-hearted community, to explore and take care of your body while consciously transitioning into the darker and colder times — this is for you.


We will meet every Monday:

19:30 — 21:00h CET (Berlin time)

18:30 — 20:00h BST (London time)

1.30 — 3pm EDT (New York time)


On the following dates:

9th November

16th November

23th November

30th November

7th December

14th December


There will be an early bird price available of 144€ instead of 166€ for the whole course until the 1th of November. To receive the early bird discount code, sign up to the newsletter.

I am looking forward to co-create this magical journey with you.
Honouring Earth. Honouring Body.

Sending warmth your way,
Janina

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.

Janina Schwager

Being born into a world that is driven by money and mania of industrial growth, undermined by destructive behaviour towards ourselves and this beautiful planet that we are sharing with so many other precious beings—not being able to comprehend these destructive ways of interacting—I started questioning the way we operate as humans from a young age.

Stepping into my first yoga class in 2012 initiated a process of shedding the many layers of an image that I had created of myself. The beginning of an inward journey: a journey of becoming aware and unlearning at the same time. Likewise, an outward journey—from frantic Berlin city life, to one year living in an ashram, into a life in nature.

After spending years of intensively studying the inner worlds, I am currently especially interested in how to bring the inner & outer work together. How do we not only heal ourselves, individually but create life-enhancing & supportive communities for all beings? I am passionate about exploring the interface between the spiritual, the individual, the political & the collective as I believe it is crucial that we, the people, start to take responsibility and create the world that we wish for.
