Contemporary Embodied Spirituality
My mission with BodyMind.Network is to bridge ancient wisdom with modern scientific research to help people reclaim their body wisdom as a gate to personal growth and healing.
Embodied Spirituality integrates all human dimensions, including emotions, body, and sexuality. It considers the body as the home of the complete human being, as a microcosm of the universe, and as a vehicle for spiritual transformation through direct experience.
An embodied spiritual practitioner is embracing the wholeness of human experience while remaining grounded in life - in the body, on earth, and in society. I believe that embodiment is the way to a contemporary, independent spirituality of our time, free from religious bias and dogma.
The latest research in cognitive science and body-mind medicine is validating what eastern philosophers and ancient yogis have known and practiced for centuries. The body is not a mindless machine; the body and mind (matter and consciousness) are one. With this project and my work, I am aiming to make this knowledge available and applicable for as many people as possible, including you :)
Take your body as your intimate partner on the path towards growth and transformation.
"Believe nothing until you find it out for yourself."
Science and spirituality seem contradictious, but in my opinion, they are not.
A spiritual seeker and a scientist are both willing to find out the truth about life and the nature of reality.
A true spiritual seeker must act scientifically – be systematic in studying life in a possibly unbiased way. A true scientist should have the openness to consider different means of knowledge other than senses and physical instruments as well as different approaches to understanding than only the materialistic one.
Creating a link between the material and the spiritual has become more and more important over the last decades, as it has become clear that many chronic diseases, often caused by our modern lifestyle, can be avoided or healed through holistic approaches to health and life.
I use my academic background to build a bridge between science and spirituality and to create a down-to-earth approach to embodiment and spiritual practices.
We have never needed it as much as we do now.
“The meaning of life is not something to be discerned and known intellectually by the mind, but to be felt in the depths of our flesh.”
Jorge N. Ferrer
Your body is your temple. It means that it is home to the life that finds its unique expression through you.
Learn to honor your body so that it can become a strong vehicle in your journey towards growth and transformation.
I use movement as one of the tools to help people arrive in their bodies and find joy in motion and expression.
Conscious movement helps you to recognize the body not only as a foundation of health, but also as a gate to a calm state of mind and deeper dimensions of human existence.
Liberate your mind and reclaim your body wisdom to create a truly fulfilled life.
"Life isn't about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself."
George Bernard Shaw
For me, spirituality is taking responsibility for your life, but still trusting the process.
It is the balance between these two.
It means seeking the truth – the connection to your true nature and to everything that is.
It is an act of courage to become the best possible version of yourself. Realizing your highest potential and learning how to manifest positive changes in your life.
It's emotional and personal growth.
It's waking up.
Everyone is different. My biggest dream and mission is to help people find their own personal practice, one that will support them as they grow and transform their lives. I use a variety of tools (movement, breathing, relaxation, energy work, different meditation techniques, and more) to promote independence and individuality in spiritual growth.
