The result? We feel lethargic, disconnected and depleted. We gain weight and develop chronic health problems. We feel tense and uninspired The Body Intelligence Summit is here to shift all that – helping you open new vistas of vitality, creativity and joy through the journey of becoming more deeply, beautifully and deliciously embodied.

    Here’s what some past Body Intelligence Summit participants have to say about their experience:

    Just listening to the presentations was a daily encouragement to return to the body and its wisdom. I was most moved by approaches using movement to source both, and have been allowing my body to “move” me. The result was easy access to my child nature and joy!
    – Valerie Bird, Vancouver, BC, Canada

    I am so much more aware of my body’s intelligent language now and am paying more attention to what it is telling me about what I should be doing and how to make decisions including its wisdom.
    – Patrick Yesh

    This summit was an amazing experience. It brought so much positive vibes and reminded us of the essential principles of our human existence. I absolutely support and am deeply grateful for the efforts and the time put into this wonderful week. Thank you all!

    Live Talk with Lamara

    If you’re ready to increase the level of energy, joy, clarity, and connection in your life, this seminar will open a wide doorway for you!

    Humans have the opportunity to make the shift now from fear-focused, adrenaline-fueled living to full-body-intelligent living. Body intelligence expands our perspective beyond fear to the rich wisdom of millenniums of experience we carry in our cells including: all feelings and inner experience, informed responsive choices, heightened well-being, and open perception based on curiosity and possibility, rather than scarcity and prejudice.

    Body Intelligence allows us to connect deeply with our essence and the flow of life that sparks genuine appreciation and collaboration with others. Body intelligence is the direct, consciously felt experience of being alive, from the flow of blood and sensation to the many attitudes and mental shifts that weave with our responses to being in a body, in relationships, work and the world. If you’re ready to increase the level of energy, joy, clarity, and connection in your life, this seminar will open a wide doorway for you!

    Discover your true body intelligence:

    • Easily recognize your inner signals for yes and no
    • Increase your band-width for receiving and acting on the messages from your body
    • Navigate the flow of your day with vitality and balance
    • Discover the joy of embodied connection to yourself, others, and the world.
    • Shift easily from stress and fear to creativity and collaboration
    • Solve problems in new ways
    • Create more fun with work and more pleasure in general
    • Directly and fully participate in life
    • Expand your capacity for giving and receiving more love
    • Heal our collective 2000+ year old myth that the body is bad and must be controlled
    • Learn easy and practical tips and tools to apply to your daily life to shift from a head driven life to a body centered life.

    Lamara is a body intelligence expert who speaks, facilitates and performs, inspiring people to claim their bodies as an essential source of intelligence, power, and pleasure.

    The verdict is in: a life of deep, delicious embodiment is not only more pleasurable, it creates better health, a longer life, stronger relationships, and even more creativity! We eat better, we laugh more, and we have more satisfying sex. We release our distractions and subtle addictions, and experience more joy in each moment.

    Science supports this conclusion, which also relates to our lived experience. When we are more connected with our bodies, as when we are dancing, at a yoga retreat or on a tropical getaway, we just FEEL better.

    So the question isn’t if it’s valuable to become more embodied, the only real question is how to go about it?

    That’s why we are so delighted to present this Liberating Your Body Intelligence course – which builds upon the enlightening information shared during the groundbreaking Body Intelligence Summit. You’ll discover a powerful, systematic guided program lead by co-hosts Katie Hendricks and Lamara Heartwell – helping you rewire your body and mind together, while joyfully connecting to teachings, practices and community (from the comfort of your home).

    Discover the joy of embodied connection to yourself, others and our world

    A Pioneering Online Event That Unites Scientists, Therapists,
    Dancers, Bodyworkers and YOU For the First Time Ever

    February 10-13, 2014

    We’ve all been raised in a disembodied world – sitting at awkward desks for far too many hours, squinting at screens, learning through our brains alone, and thinking of our bodies as machines to feed with fuel rather than exquisite works of art to savor.

    The result? We feel lethargic, isolated, disconnected and depleted. We develop strange diseases. We put on weight. We feel tense and uncreative.

    The Body Intelligence Summit is here to change all that – helping you open new vistas of aliveness, joy, creativity, vitality and FUN through the journey of becoming more deeply, beautifully and deliciously embodied.

    The truth is that your body holds vast intelligence and wisdom – from the precise communication system of your nervous system, to the power of your muscles, to the distributed sensitivity of your skin. Modern science is just barely discovering how complexly creative, wonderfully balanced and intricately interconnected it all is.
