It’s so delicious to experience the calmness, groundedness and crystal clear awareness that comes with full body presence.
In this state, you’re in tune with your body’s sensations and the wisdom they hold for you AND you’re able to follow this wisdom.
Your life flows more effortlessly. You have a greater sense of belonging and connectedness. Your creativity is let loose. You’re truly present with others — and they feel your welcoming energy and become more relaxed and present themselves!
This is why we meditate, and why we seek and commit to body-centric practices that can reign us back into our depths — away from our scattered thinking, daily stressors, and societal and cultural pressures.
Yet oftentimes, even while immersed in these truly beneficial practices, we can hit a wall — there’s still something blocking us from being fully present and completely “inhabiting” our body.
This could be something as simple as a clenched jaw we’re unaware of throughout a stressful meeting to a much more persistent, long-term obstacle, such as the residue of a life trauma that’s energetically lodged within our system.
Or, you may have negative perceptions about your body — you don’t think you’re attractive enough, believe you’re too heavy, too thin; or, perhaps, you’re struggling to accept aging.
These unbeneficial thoughts coupled with our unconsciousness around our body’s sensations create blind spots to achieving the optimal presence we desire in our everyday.
They can also stifle our spiritual growth — the inner wisdom, compassion and connectedness we open to on the cushion often feeling just out of reach.
When you’re not in touch with the messages your body is giving you — such as the wave of uneasiness that can fill your gut when a situation doesn’t feel quite right or the constriction in your heart area that tells you you’re grieving — you can become overwhelmed, stressed or distracted, your mind and body confused.
The remedy for this imbalance — which most of us struggle with daily — is to establish a strong, deep, intimate relationship with your own unique physical self.
When you discover how to establish and nurture a healthy relationship with your body, you can reclaim the “lost parts” of yourself, draw from your body’s innate wisdom and better navigate your life.
Science tells us that our many body systems are meant to work together, to help us maintain internal stability and balance — optimal homeostasis.
Your body is designed to guide you, keep you safe, and bring you full vitality and pleasure. It’s the vehicle through which you create and manifest your thoughts and dreams into reality.
When you’re in tune with your body, you can more easily achieve that luscious feeling of full body presence more often because you’re aware of the sensations and signals your body is sending you, you know how to interpret this innate wisdom AND how to use its gifts.
So, how do you learn to listen to your body in ways that help you to use it as the wise navigational system it is?
In Reclaiming Your 6 Body Wisdom Areas, bestselling author and leading conscious awareness instructor Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, CMT, CST-D, will provide you with the knowledge you need to discover, tune into and draw from the power of your body wisdom areas — for greater intuition, discernment, vitality, personal power and joy.
Suzanne is one of the world’s leading authorities on conscious awareness and its transformational impact on the healing process. For more than 30 years, she’s empowered others with practical tools that help improve every aspect of their lives — from health and wellbeing to relationships, career, creativity and spiritual growth.
The six important body wisdom areas you’ll explore with her in this powerful virtual program are the brain, heart, gut, pelvis, bones and feet and legs. Each provides you with specific information about what you’re feeling (or not feeling) and how you’re actually responding to the world around you in any given moment.
As science dictates, all of your body systems are designed to work together. Every cell is meant to be talking to every other cell all the time — a synergy that can really help you thrive, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually, too, IF you’re tuned into this innate wisdom.
Our body’s wisdom, Suzanne teaches, speaks to each of us in unique ways. In times of stress, some might have a “felt sense” that creates a wave of sensation throughout the body, others may feel contracted in the gut, still others may notice a blocking off or numbness in the pelvic area.
Suzanne knows. Her proven methods for awakening the body’s innate wisdom and her work as a craniosacral therapist and in SomatoEmotional Release® (and as an international teacher of these modalities) were inspired in early adulthood by a violent attack involving a trusted friend that left her with chronic pain and emotional trauma.
As Suzanne learned, oftentimes our reactions to our body sensations can be overly vigilant, as our brain may be thinking what’s happening now is similar to a past traumatic event. This locks us out of the current moment and leaves us vulnerable, because we can’t accurately sense what the rest of our body (especially the heart or gut) is telling us.
And if you can’t feel present moment sensations, then you’re left to relating with past experience through the mind only.
This life-transforming, 7-part virtual program will show you how outdated beliefs, emotional blocks and trauma of all kinds can be discovered and released from the body.
You’ll also learn how to use your body wisdom areas to their full capacity to gain a lifetime of resources for clearer intuition, better health, greater energy and even more creativity and joy.
During this powerful new training, you’ll discover:
Throughout your life, as time passes and situations change, your relationships with others will shift, yet, as long as you’re alive, your body will always be with you.
This new 7-step virtual journey into discovering and using the innate knowledge of your six body wisdom areas will deepen and strengthen this longest relationship of all — your relationship with the unique physical you.
It will help you tune into what your body was designed to do — guide and protect you, provide vitality and pleasure, and help you to live with full awareness of the unfolding of life in each moment.
Tapping into your full body presence is how you open to your full creative potential, the sheer enjoyment of life AND manifest what you most desire!
This is your opportunity to discover how to establish and enjoy a healthy relationship with your body, to reclaim “lost parts” of yourself, draw from your body’s wisdom, and gain the skills to better navigate your life now and for years to come.
In this 7-part transformational intensive, Suzanne will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully tune into and use the valuable knowledge your body innately holds to release your obstacles to thriving — physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Each contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to sustain a strong, deep, intimate relationship with your own unique physical self for a lifetime of greater awareness and vitality.
What’s your current relationship to your body? Is it friendly or does it feel uneasy or unsettled? As you age, are you judging your body harshly, liking what you see less and less? Despite your spiritual growth, do you still sometimes find your self-worth tied to your appearance?
Oftentimes, our true perceptions of our body exist below the waterline of our consciousness, which, like static on a radio station, can be an internal distraction that can prevent you from being present in the moment AND in your life.
SO... during this first module, to start to “make friends” with your body, you’ll be guided in taking an assessment of just how comfortable you are in your own skin to discover and address your beliefs (or Body Myths) hijacking your joy and aliveness.
In this module you’ll:
Most of us care deeply about those in our world. In fact, our whole lives may be centered around others — our radiant heart revealing the caring, compassionate person we are. Yet, when you’re “all heart,” pouring so much of your love energy into your life and work — without refilling your own cup, often or deeply enough — you can become depleted. You may even suffer “compassion fatigue” and the energy and inspiration for your own ambitions can flicker out.
Knowing the hidden anatomy of your heart and how it can help you to assess its needs in any given moment can lift you out of this cycle of depletion and burnout. As you learn to draw from your heart’s natural wellspring for rejuvenation, vitality and joy, you can strike a balance that allows you to be the compassionate person you are AND keep your own health and inspirations thriving as well.
In this module, you’ll discover:
How often has your gut clearly told you what you should do, but you second guessed yourself and sabotaged that instinctual knowing by reasoning it away? Or, perhaps you’ve experienced a crystal clear message from your gut, only to quickly defer it to your brain, where you begin to interpret it and create plans based on your interpretation rather than on what your gut originally told you? These are classic ways we block ourselves from the instinctual knowledge our gut holds for us.
Your gut is the repository of great wisdom about what’s happening inside AND around you in this moment... and then in the next moment, and the next. Your gut gives you clear signals about whether people, situations or events in your life are right or wrong for you at this time. So, learning to listen to (and trust) the cues we receive from this wisdom area is important — to creating the life we desire as well as to our safety.
In this module, you’ll discover:
Our culture and religion can discourage us from embodying the primal power of our pelvis — doing so considered seductive or even dangerous. Yet, advertising lures us in with seductive marketing, knowing we’re instinctively drawn to this powerful wisdom area. Despite this, however, the bottom line is that we rarely live fully from this place or integrate its power into our overall body wisdom.
Without the potency of this wisdom area, our inner fire grows cold and our health and vitality suffers. We lose our resilience to bounce back from stress, and chronic illness can ultimately creep in.
When the pelvis is locked down or compartmentalized due to trauma or physical injury, we’re unknowingly draining the life out of our heart’s inspirations. So, this “black sheep” of the body wisdom areas is an important one to tune into.
In this module, you’ll discover:
When you need to make a decision now, get your legs and feet moving!
So often we attribute what this wisdom area brings to other areas of the body. We think, oh, my heart told me to take that route. Or, my gut has the lead on that one. When, in fact, what often catalyzes good decision-making is movement of the legs and feet.
The cross body movement of this area is even believed to signal the brain’s right and left hemispheres to integrate, opening us to better solutions and possibilities for our lives. The feet and legs also stimulate creativity and generate energy along with many other stealth benefits.
In this module, you’ll discover:
Do you find yourself pulled off center and feeling “off” due to the stressors of your life and the world around you? Does your external world dictate your happiness? Do you tell yourself, I will be content when my partner changes, when my work situation is better, when the turbulence and dangerousness of the world’s political circumstances change?
If any of the above ring true for you, then this wisdom area is calling to you. The bones are your densest form of connective tissue and the sturdiest structures in your body. They naturally radiate a sense of steadiness. And, when you drop deep into this inner recess of who you are, the urgency of the outside world fades, your perceptual lens expands and the fog around you slowly fades bringing greater clarity.
In this module, you’ll discover how:
Your brain has long been king of the body. It second guesses your gut, invalidates your deep heartfelt responses and inspiration for being unreasonable, and it’s highly suspicious of the power of the pelvis. The brain also claims credit for decisions activated by the legs and feet, and generally views itself as superior to the rest of your body.
Yet, recent research shows how much wisdom actually resides within the rest of the body, and how this knowledge is fed to the brain to help us make healthy resolutions to life’s challenges. We can still value the brain for the wonderful integrator of information, mapmaker and strategizer it is AND for its ability to help us listen to our entire body’s wisdom.
In this last module, you’ll discover:
In addition to Suzanne’s transformative 7-part virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions and bonus materials. These bonuses are being offered to complement what you’ll learn in the course and deepen your understanding and practice.
At one level or another, traumatic experiences are a part of any life — from the emotional shock of a parent or peer’s careless words in childhood to intense physical injuries to life-threatening emergencies and/or assaults. Not only do these events take a toll on our psyches, in Reclaiming Your Body: Healing From Trauma & Awakening to Your Body’s Wisdom (New World Library, June, 2017), author Suzanne Scurlock-Durana explains how they they cut us off from the wisdom of our bodies as well.
In this deeply touching interview with Paul Dolman, Suzanne shares her depth of love, compassion and practical wisdom. You’ll hear her discuss how to tap into the body’s wisdom to reconnect to yourself, to the present moment and to what is most important for you to connect to on a soul level so you can fulfill your life’s purpose. Her words carried such grace and resonated deeply on so many levels.
Paul Samuel Dolman is passionate about connecting on a soul level with other people, self-realization that applies to everyday living and finding wisdom in all things. He is the author of the highly successful book, Hitchhiking With Larry David, as well as Martha’s Vineyard Miracles, Seven Crazy Days In Maui and What Matters Most. He travels and gives talks on a variety of subjects. He has been a professional musician playing piano and guitar. He worked as a film producer in Hollywood and founded an entertainment company. He currently divides his time between Martha’s Vineyard and Anastasia Island.
This audio series is particularly useful for those who desire more grounding and filling exercises to complement their practice. You will be taken deep into the energy field within the body, and receive the tools, knowledge, sensory cues and imagery to build or enhance your own energy field. The second and third segments of the main session are meant to be used once the longer exploration feels comfortable. Also included are two shorter explorations to give you more concise exercises in order to be practical and useful on a daily basis.
