Liberated Being is an online embodied practice studio.
We need practices that deepen our presence, our felt sense, and our way of Being in the world in order to resolve some of the divides that we have between mind, body, spirit, and taking action.
You can think of Liberated Being as a gym membership for the places where body and psyche meet.
Practices that cultivate your capacity to meet life
Why do people choose to do embodied practices?
People work with the kinds of practices our teachers offer for a number of tangible benefits:
to regulate their nervous systems
as an adjunct support for trauma therapy
to heal chronic pain or just feel more comfortable in their body
to feel at ease in themselves and the world
to show up when it matters most
to shed outdated nourishment barriers
to recalibrate their inner compass
ultimately, to become more of who they actually are.
We offer practice sessions that are 15 minutes, 30 minutes, and 60 minutes.
All practices happen live online, and are recorded and uploaded to our wellness platform where they are available for replay for 7 days after the original class.
20 scholarship (free) spots are available.
If you are a part of a historically marginalized community, are a single parent, or are under or unemployed please email team [at] liberatedbeing [dot] community with the subject line “scholarship”.
Here's everything you get with your monthly unlimited membership:
EMBODIED MEDITATION & MOVEMENT PRACTICES
Sunday through Friday 15, 30 and 60 minute classes are offered in a variety of embodied meditation and movement practices.
Connect daily to like-minded peers who get what it means to be on this path via our private social media community
Access to the past 7-days worth of class recordings in the private recording library.
Our values and guiding principles:
There is no “one true path” of embodied practice. While the practices that we offer in the studio are by no means exhaustive (that would be very hard to do!), we intentionally include a number of contemplative meditation and movement practices and teachings. This way everyone can find what works for them, which is, after all, the kind of wisdom we are learning how to tune into with embodied practices in the first place! So rather than needing to sign up for any kind of rigid blueprint (or worse, belief system), instead we offer many ways “in” to ourselves.
Embodiment is for everyone who has a body; All are welcome. The Liberated Being team is personally and professionally committed to addressing racism, ableism, ageism, and all forms of gender & sex discrimination. Scholarships are also available for people who are a part of any historically marginalized community. To inquire about a scholarship spot, you can email team [at] liberatedbeing.community.
Somewhat bizarrely, many personal transformation and/or wellness spaces have a subtle anti-human thing going on. This happens by way of teaching that practices can be used to achieve a permanently equanimous (or blissful) state. Sorry folks but there is no permanent state of any kind! And if we try to hang onto that, we wind up gaslighting ourselves by pretending we aren’t feeling what we’re actually feeling. Even the most enlightened among us still feel grief, love, anger… all of the things. We’re here to be human, and as long as we’re in a human body we’re going to have a human life with all its ups, downs, and in-betweens. Embodied practice is a way of more directly, intimately, and meaningfully being here for all of it, rather than trying to escape it. This practice studio does not have a finish line in mind where we are finally “perfect”.
Making embodied practice a regular part of your life will allow for significant positive shifts. It’s kind of wild, but it just plain does. Whether that shift is resolving chronic pain or changing how you relate to your significant people, big time things do happen with these simple practices cultivated over time. However, we don’t think of ourselves as the only thing people need depending on what they are up against and resolving. (See non-dogmatic and pro-human above…). Instead, we see this studio as deep practice that offers a benevolent wind at your back, but it’s not meant to be taken like a pill that will fix anything and everything. We honor the interconnectedness of various support systems including therapy, bodywork, healthcare, rest, and relationships.
What happens when you join?
When you join Liberated Being through our monthly or annual unlimited options, you get access to every class on the schedule.
Can’t make a class you want because of your schedule or time zone?
No worries! You also have access to the video library which hosts all classes from the previous 7 days. Within an hour of a class finishing up, it will pop up in the library for you to take on your own schedule.
Just like your local fitness or yoga studio, you are not at all expected to participate in all classes. This wouldn’t even be recommended because whoa, that’s a lotta practices.
Instead, you can use your ability to try different things as a way of finding the teachers and practices that work best for you. And, of course, you can mix it up over time as you wish.
After you sign up you will receive a confirmation email that gives you access to the member area. This is where you can see the schedule of live practices with links to join and the video library of the last 7 days worth of practices. So you can come to a live practice right away if you want! Just click on the practice calendar and follow the link instructions.
Once you’ve joined, in the member area you will also see a quick link to our social media hub (which is *not* the dreaded Facebook- it’s our own private space). We have members from all over the world in there, where we can share resources, experiences, and questions about what it means to engage in becoming more embodied. It’s not required to participate here, some of us are pretty “social media, ick!” which is all good. But for those of you who want some chatting with other members when you’re not in class, it’s a great spot for connecting.
