Embodied Inquiry

EMBODIED INQUIRY PROGRAMS

Embodied Inquiry is a unique, leading-edge path bringing together conscious movement, awareness training, inner work, and stillness practice into an integrated transformative process that touches body, heart, and spirit. 

The process draws upon three main sources: practices of conscious movement and embodied leadership inspired by Soul Motion®, Open Floor, Continuum Montage, Authentic Movement, Lomi Somatics, Aikido & more; body-centered explorations of Gestalt Awareness Practice; as well as somatic and meditative inquiries of Tibetan Buddhism and other ancient and modern traditions.

Zuza artfully and magically tends the field of awareness with a mastery that is full of mystery and grace, sprinkled liberally with humor. Her keen, guiding wisdom, and uncanny felt sense awareness of both the group as a whole and of its individuals, along with her intuitive use of poetry, writings and music, combine to create a safe and rich container in which there is an always respectful invitation to dive through thresholds of the unknown, the yet uncharted territories of our own inherent wisdom.
