Please join Lani Weissbach, IMAC's Director of Embodied Learning, for Wisdom of the Body, a monthly online forum designed to bring people of all backgrounds and experience together to explore the myriad ways we can grow, learn and heal through the wisdom of the body. People of all walks of life and from any profession are encouraged to attend! Each session will incorporate foundation elements of mindfulness meditation and will introduce a variety of simple somatic explorations that can be useful to anyone in their daily lives. Some writing and discussion will be encouraged, and each participant can engage with the group to their level of comfort. Each session will explore different topics and practices that are designed to:

  • Create a friendly, welcoming space for everyone to feel safe, supported and free to express

  • Introduce simple and powerful embodiment practices to release stress and create freedom and ease in mind and body

  • Explore a variety of prompts (in the form of questions, quotations, poems, imagery, music, drawing, etc.) to provoke new, non-habitual and creative ways of thinking and being in our bodies

  • Enjoy lively and respectful exchange with fellow humans

  • Gain insights and a deeper understanding of a variety of issues related to our personal and collective human experience

  • Model the foundation for equity in the world by engaging with each other from a foundation of sensitivity, respect and kindness
