Journeys of Embodiment
A peer-led quest for body-mind explorers wanting to stretch and grow their relationship to the body.
The more disconnected we are from our bodies, the louder the alarm to reconnect is. Join the online community reimagining a more playful, kinder relationship to body and self.
Join an international cohort of 12 humans. Use movement and bodymind practices to build up your resilience, discover new pathways, and challenge your own patterns and belief systems. Together, we will support one another as we explore what it means to initiate change from an embodied place.
Is it for me?
Do you have a body? Do you believe we need a radical shift in how we relate and belong to our bodies? Do you want to join a multidisciplinary group of folks from around the world?
Maybe you want to make space for a passion project relating to a movement practice. Or to manifest your values while making space for rest and healing. Or you might simply be itching to explore your personal connection or disconnection to your own body. If so, this is the right place for you.
Do it to
Use your body as a map to discover your gifts. Create a unique response to a body-related challenge that matters to you.
Make space for deep, soulful inquiry in your life. Bring a sense of playfulness and friendship to your exploration.
Unlock the confidence to make things happen with head, heart and hands. Be part of a supportive group of peers.
Hi, I’m Clem. As a previous Learning Marathon participant, I am excited to host my own collective journey to find home in our bodies, and make inspiring new friends.
I am a yoga teacher and passionate facilitator, and I also live with chronic pain. I believe magic happens when we make space in our lives for our bodies’ sense of knowing, witnessing old patterns unravel. As host, I will encourage you to bring your values & stories of your body to your exploration.
"Clem is an inviting and responsive host who holds groups with deep care and infectious laughter."
Iacob Bacian, Coach
How do you approach diversity and inclusion?
We believe that placing peer-to-peer relationships at the heart of learning creates huge potential for a more inclusive approach to education. We also know that a very deliberate effort is required to deliver those benefits in reality. A top cited value point for Enrol Yourself participants is that they learnt alongside people they wouldn't otherwise have met and were able to exchange their perspectives, ideas, experiences and more.
We want to welcome and support anyone with a strong intention to take part in our programmes, and aim to ensure that your identity or background will not be a barrier. Whilst we don't have it all figured out yet, we are working on it.
What does the programme look like?
We will start by co-creating our 6 month adventure together. During the Learning Marathon three phases (Explore, Develop & Showcase), we will meet fortnightly for workshops, alternating with buddy sessions. To support each other in our collective learning, we will take turns leading a workshop that helps us explore our learning questions. The journey is punctuated by 2 'power up' sessions, to report back and receive input on our individual progress. Find more details in the info pack.
What does the application process look like?
Apply by the 13th March to get a 5% early bird discount. We will be reviewing and interviewing throughout the application period, so get it in early! Final deadline to apply for the Learning Marathon is Saturday 3d April 2021, 8am. The application process is simple. You tell us a bit about yourself & the question you'd like to explore during your Learning Marathon via the application form. We will find a time to speak with you and discuss it further, before we offer a limited number of places.
How much does it cost to participate?
The cost ranges from £750 - £1850 dependent on your circumstances and finances. Bursaries and payment plans are available, and there’s a 5% discount for early bird applicants who are accepted. If you are able, we encourage you to contribute to our higher tiers, making it possible to offer lower cost places to those with less income. We are aware that this is a financially precarious moment for many, so please reach out if you need support.
The Learning Marathon is international, what does that mean?
This is an international, online learning marathon. Your host will be based in the UK. To allow for more fluid conversations, and spontaneous interactions, we will prioritize applications from GMT, GMT+1 and CEST time zones. During the learning marathon, we will communicate (mainly!) in English. To take part, you need to feel confident in your abilities to articulate your thought process in English, but you don’t need to be bilingual. This is to ensure you get the most from the experience!
How are we going to engage our bodies in the online space?
Movement practices and showing up with our whole body, and self, have always been part of the Learning Marathon. As this journey specifically focuses on connecting with our body’s intelligence, we will take special care in collectively designing inclusive body-related explorations, connecting with and welcoming every-body into our shared online space. We will also mindfully balance time spent “doing” and time spent simply “being” together online.
