Embodied Awakening 

embodied women are not perfect.
we stumble and fall, and have bad days.
we fall on our face and feel like we've maybe fucked things up.
we cry. we bleed. sometimes, we even yell. 

but, in the messy unfolding of life
we’ve found a treasure map,
a map that guides us Home.
again and again and again.
and we’ve learned that Home,
is not out there
in some pretty picture perfect reality,
it is here, inside our very own skin.

we have shed the too tight clothes,
cleared the shelves of plastic food,
and shattered one by one
the false stories they have told us
about who we are and who we are allowed to be.

embodied women are devoted to the Truth,
and are committed to coming back to the Real.

embodied woman are open to
and answering the call of the wild soul.

embodied women are sensual and centered,
moving rhythmically to the great drum of the earth and heart.

embodied women listen to their desires
and honor the longing that ignites inspired action.

embodied women feel GOOD in their own skin, 
walking into life with confidence and ease. 

embodied women know that they are here to shine and share. 
and that this body, 
filled with pleasure & presence
is how we make waves in a soul parched world.

instead of bowing in submission
to our judgements, fears and doubts,
we follow the map and spiral deeper in. 

instead of subscribing yet again
to habitual cultural prescriptions
that only serve to keep us sick and small,
we enter the most sacred temple, 
the rich space of body where wholeness and soulfulness live.

...and you sister, 
you are here because something is calling you.
you feel the nudge,
you know that whisper beneath your skin. 
the relentless one,
the one that refuses to go away
no matter how many times you turn the volume down. 
the one that frightens and excites
all at the same time.

you may try to turn away, 
numb out, 
self distract, 
avoid… 
you may feel afraid of what’s asked of you
or what’s waiting on the other side.

but you cannot silence the call.

the divine Shakti She is calling you Home.
calling you back to soul and center.
calling you back to breath, blood and bone.
calling you to re-member
the brilliant beautiful being that you are.

and She is trusting you to answer.
Because She is where your power lives, 
where your voice is set free, 
and where your inspiration ignites.

She is where the sacred comes alive in your everyday reality. 

and She is waiting for you.

knocking with Her wise & steady rhythm, 
She is asking you
to Learn, Heal & Create.
to Connect, Feel & Reveal.
to Align, Embody & Express.

to return to your senses and honor your soul.

She is asking you to reclaim your incredible body of wisdom.
She is ready for you to come Home.

sometimes you may feel crazy. 
like it makes no sense
like life would be fine, or maybe even better,
if the nudging and the longing
would just go away.

but it won't until you listen.
it won't until you heed the call
and follow the map
that is leading you back
to embodied presence.
leading you back
to that place where
your magic
and power
lies waiting.
it won’t until you enter the temple
and reengage the sacred in your every cell.
 

the time is now. 
you know it because you feel it.

the time is now.
because the world is sick and suffering
and desperately in need
of women who are lit up, turned on and connected.
like never before.

the time is now.
because you're ready, 
the support is here, 
and the treasure map is waiting.

your feminine body is reawakening,
are you ready?

everything you want begins here...
let's enter the temple

 


 
 

 

Navigating through life in a woman's body is no easy feat in the modern world.
We are living in the age of information which, as great as it may be to have access to so many ideas, studies and opinions, is overwhelming our bodies and minds with external noise. That noise is filled with immeasurable pressure and ideas about how, or who, or what we (you or I) "should" be. That noise is zapping our energy, stealing our clarity and costing us the power to intuitively decide what's right for us and actually thrive as women plugged in to source and center. 

And the biggest problem is, we've dutifully subscribed to the noise. 

We stopped listening to the wisdom within and started internalized voices that weren't our own.
We let the noise "out there" become the authority on who we actually are and who we are meant to be. We suffer the consequences of inner conflict, self doubt and discontent. We fail to step into our callings, honor our real gifts and share our heART, ultimately costing our families, communities and planet the creativity and healing it so desperately needs. 

They say: 
Look good.
Act like a lady.
Don't be a bitch.
But don't be too nice.
Be sexy.
But not too sexy.
Don't be too loud.
Be polite. 
Don't be too crazy or passionate or wild. 
Be reasonable. 
Play nice. 
Keep your legs crossed.
Follow the rules.
This is how you get a man,
a job,
a "successful" life.


Inside you hear:
Am I enough?
Am I too much?
I want to feel good, but am I worthy?
I'm hungry for more, but what is that exactly? 

I feel all these feelings, am I crazy?
I keep going round and round in circles, are "they" right?

I feel like I'm here for a reason, do I have what it takes to bring it to life?
Am I courageous enough to go my own way?



Between the noise out there and the self doubt inside it's no wonder women feel overwhelmed, burnt out and disconnected as they strive to keep up. 

I haven't yet met a woman who hasn't navigated the territory of negotiating her enough-ness or her (too) much-ness. We're so sure we are deficient in some way, and are equally terrified of our full range and capacity, that we spend our money, time and energy wrapped up in trying to "fix" and moderate ourselves.

But you, we, the women of the world, aren't the problem to be fixed,
we are a great garden longing to be nourished and cultivated.
And in so doing, we...
revitalize ourselves,
 fortify our families, 
heal our communities, 
feed a sick culture, 
and deeply nourish a suffering world.

Awake. Embodied. Women. 
We are the answer. 


Embodied Awakening is about listening in to the subtle, yet substantial, wisdom waiting for our attention. It is about honoring our own deep impulses and natural rhythms. It is about responding to old wounds with nourishment and tenderness. It is about remembering the power of our own presence and the extraordinary vitality that lives within. It is about listening deep beneath the surface layers of our life, into the core of who we are so we can activate & actualize our potential. 

We are a culture that has been uprooted from our source. We've been disconnected from the rich wisdom of BODY. We've been separated from our deep relationship to spirit- the spirit that beats our hearts and breathes our lungs and moves our limbs.
And it's time to come back home to soul, center and source.

If you have ever walked through a day in your life thinking, "there is so much more to me, to life, than this." You're right. Your inner compass has been guiding you to turn the feminine wisdom on high so that your dynamic embodied presence is far stronger than all the noise out there combined.

Embodied Awakening is the way back home.

This is a foundational, transformative course for any woman wanting to access and (re)awaken her inner authority and turn on the power of her presence. Here we celebrate your is-ness, your unique voice, your authentic expression, your beautiful amazing body and all the wisdom it holds.
 This course connects you to life long resources that will feed your courage and clarity so you can begin making meaningful choices, and take empowered action from a place of authentic personal truth. 

It's time to inhabit ourselves fully and express our truth freely.
Waking women are here to elevate themselves and the world.  
Are you ready to enter the temple & cultivate the sanctuary of YOU?

These will be processed and awarded based on need. I trust that you will assess yourself and your economic realities honestly, thoughtfully, and with integrity. Click here to learn more.

  • How much time will this course take?
    This is subjective and depends on how you feel called to participate.  We will have one 75 minute call per week with an additional 30 minutes for Q&A. There will be weekly play sheets and practices to explore the themes of the week which you can dive into in a timeframe that works for you. Just know that the more you participate and engage the practices the more you will get out of the program and the more vital and embodied you will become. 
     
  • Will online learning work for me? 
    Only you can really determine if this format will work for you. However, here are a few things to keep in mind:  The course combines live calls, recorded audio and video, written materials, worksheets and exercises to support your learning. The variety of formats means you’ll be able to digest and integrate the material in ways that work for you.

    You’ll also be able to connect with like-minded women from all over the world, learn/participate in a way that works with your schedule, and you have easy access to course materials for the duration of the program and beyond.

    * I highly recommend scheduling session times in on your calendar and prioritizing being on the calls live as this helps your commitment and elevates the dynamic experience of the entire group.  
     
  • I'm just not sure...
    Check in with your body: How do you physically feel when you consider registering? Good & excited? Nervous? Scary/exhilarating? Light/heavy? All of these are clues. 

    Notice what part of you is hesitant: Is it the part of you that knows? Listen up. Is it your inner critic or the voice of fear? Not good voices to listen to. Question what they are saying. Especially question any voices telling you that you somehow don’t measure up to being in this group, that you won’t be able to “do it right,” or that the time to do this has to be "just right."

    Explore: Is there a particular fear or worry you have? If so, write it down and examine it.

    Ask yourself: If you knew you couldn’t fail & that you’d fit in beautifully with this group — what would you do?

    Reflect: What has your journey of embodiment and awakening been like? What are you hoping to gain?

    Still not sure? send me an email here and let's discuss. 
     
  • What if I sign up and change my mind? 
    Please take the time to find and feel your yes before joining us. Refunds will only be issued in unique and compelling circumstances, and only up to 10/16 thus I encourage you to sign up from a place of clarity of intent and commitment to the experience.

    Also please keep in mind, the course materials are yours to use and apply beyond the timeline of our live classes, and the short, focused nature of the program invites a high completion rate. 
 

 

"Having completed this program I feel much more connected to possibility, like I've come to a completion of some part of my life cycle where I was not yet ready to really be sovereign in my experience. Now I feel a grounded quality and a sense of empowerment I couldn't quite get to before. Ahead of me I see infinite potential and the ability to receive and to discern, while moving away from drama and into personal power. I feel empowered & embodied and much freer and more grateful than before.
Thank you." 

- Linda

 


WHY this matters... 

 

My name is Tulasi Adeva and I am a somatic therapist, movement facilitator and creative alchemist reconnecting individuals to their vibrant aliveness and innate wholeness. I believe in human brilliance and our natural capacity to learn, heal, create and love. I know that when we come home to ourselves and begin to deeply love and trust our bodies, our lives radically change. This homecoming becomes a revolutionary act, because when we are connected, turned on, and lit up, we have the capacity to powerfully affect the world around us in meaningful ways.

 I wholeheartedly invite you to join me for Embodied Awakening because we need your brilliance confidently shining in the world.  The body and its wisdom is a constant source of inspiration, appreciation, awe and wonder for me, it is my great passion to study and explore it and support others in remembering what a powerful vessel they are walking around in everyday. I believe it is essential that we learn to speak the language of sensation and remember the fundamentals of breath, movement, touch, feeling and expression as foundational keys for gracefully navigating a turbulent world. This course is lovingly infused with over 20 years of study in yoga, human behavior, somatic psychology, earth-based wisdom, creativity, and feminine embodiment as spiritual practice, along with my overflowing joy and enthusiasm for this dynamic exploration of our aliveness.

Join me and watch your body, mind and world transform.
