Embodied Beings is all about connection and community
FIRST AWAKEN, THEN ENLIGHTEN
At Embodied Beings, we believe that to support an individual's healing journey, you need:
1. An embodied teacher who will accompany you in your quest and your search
2. The teaching: the process to birth the new-self and reframe the current experience of self
3. A community of practice: witnessing your transformation and supporting you unravel and witness your progress journey.
At Embodied Beings, our intention isn't to be everything to everyone, but instead, everyone to be everything for themselves.
We believe in collaboration and co-creation in the service of our community and clients.

"I only wanted to live according to the prompting of my true heart, why was that so difficult” Herman Hesse. This phrase has guided my life.
I am a serial intra-entrepreneur whose work happens at the intersection of psychotherapy, somatic, design, and business. Having spent the last 20 years guiding global organizations to transform their businesses by unleashing and revealing their people's potential, I found myself continuously in awe of the untapped wisdom when experienced and given the space to flourish and unravel.
I desire to contribute to creating communities where generosity, care, and connection are at the heart of all transactions and interactions. Communities where strangers are welcomed and seen as friends, where health challenges are treated through presence and love, where education is taking place around a fireplace, and where we are mentally transported to meet and be with one another. A community where we spend most of our time in commune with our divinity and where we work together at finding solutions to our challenges in harmony with the more significant order of life. A community where living your life is what we are here to accomplish.
My interventions develop personal and collective leadership effectiveness, large-scale cultural transformations, inclusion, and entrepreneurship.
MY JOURNEY: from shame to liberation
After a decade and a half as a corporate executive at a top FTSE 100 company, I found myself at a crossroads. Needing answers to some existential questions that went beyond my performance, I decided to leave for a couple of years in pursuit of finding what will it meant to live by the prompting of your true heart.
For years I struggled to find harmony between what my heart and head wanted of me. Over the years, I noticed that at each crossroad, transition, or stuckness. The old yearning and prompt showed up. This old question led me to embark on a long journey of self-discovery, reveal, reconcile, and reintegrate my fragmented parts. The parts that inform my actions and my life at this given point in time. The journey I have been on is not a straightforward path; it is more of a rounded path with so many twists and turns. At times, I didn't understand why I was there or what was in it for me to learn, and yet I trusted, and eventually, after years, I found myself putting together the jigsaw pieces.
The journey taught me about my hindrances of the mind; it taught me the importance of slowing down and having patience if we want to shift and to listen to the voice of change from within. It taught me how to pay attention to what has resonance through the body. Finally, it taught me how to listen for harmony to integrate and embody the new shifts.
Also, this journey taught me; all answers can be sought from within and need the right conditions to activate.
Each of us has his journey, yet we all need compassionate witnessing, a wisdom council, a tribe, a mirror to be on this arduous and yet rewarding path. So today, I create this platform to connect with my tribe—the individuals seeking answers to that same question informing my daily living. I want to share and accompany individuals on the path and continue with my own embodied living.
This journey isn't for the fainthearted, yet more and more individuals choose to do just it. The path requires discipline, courage, commitment to being a student of life. There is no arrival, and yet there are peace and serenity in the seeking.
