Embodied leading, following & relating

Powerful tools to support expression & connection


Embodied practice IN THE FLESH

Deepen your own understanding of embodiment, and pick up tools to deepen connection in your relationships – with real people, together. Experiential, deep, enjoyable, face-to-face learning…  away from Zoom!

Who's it for?

Anyone interested in embodiment. As an essentials workshop, it is suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners. The emphasis is on your personal embodiment, and how you relate to others.

What you'll get at this workshop...

  • A deeper experience of your own embodiment 
  • Clarity about what the hell embodiment actually is!
  • Practical tools to deepen connection and empathy in relationship with others
  • Knowledge of the eight aspects of embodied intelligence
  • A felt sense of embodiment that you can’t get off of the internet
  • Feedback into your own embodiment that you can’t get online
  • Bad jokes and an insight into how cheeky Mark can really be
  • A pleasant, recharging day with lovely people

The Programme

The workshop will start with a personal deep-dive into embodied practice. These will be rich explorations of embodied practice with live support and feedback, and plenty of space for connection with other attendees. You will upgrade your embodied skill set.

The Tools

We may teach you Embodiment Unlimited tools such as the four elements, leader-follower and more. This in-person experience will give you the opportunity to get feedback from Mark, to strengthen your personal practice, and allow you to work with embodiment more instinctively throughout your life.

  • Embodied intelligence

Mark Walsh

CEO and Founder, Embodiment Unlimited


“Mr Embodiment” (Mark Walsh) is the author of Embodiment, Working with the Body in Training and Coaching, and Embodied Meditation.

He hosts The Embodiment Podcast (1 million+ downloads), The Embodiment Channel on YouTube (over 15M views), and led The Embodiment Conference (1000 teachers, 500,000 delegates). Seeing a theme yet?

He co-founded the Embodied Facilitator Course, and the online Certificate of Embodiment Coaching. He has certified over 1000 embodiment coaches. 

Mark gained an honours in psychology (despite been an alcoholic at the time), and has taught widely in the corporate world where he pretended to be a grown up for years, including with blue-chip companies (e.g. Google, Unilever, Shell, Axa, L’Oreal) some of whom he charged wayyyy too much as they made him wear a suit.

Mark has over 25 years of experience of extensive embodied practice. This includes several years of residential live-in aikido training, experience in a bunch of other martial arts, loads of yoga, bodywork, improv comedy, body therapy, conscious dance, experiential anatomy and meditation.

He has also triggered… sorry, taught… many yogis, NGOs, police officers, The NHS and several militaries (e.g. in Sierra Leone). 

Mark has taught in over 40 countries (most of which will even let him back in), worked in various war zones, and taught over 50,000 children. He has headlined International Coach Federation events, taught at universities, in The House of Lords, lived with the circus in Ethiopia, founded the Sane Ukraine trauma education charity, and kissed a princess.

Embodiment is his obsession, life’s work, and frankly at this point he couldn’t get a job doing anything else. He dances like your dad at a wedding, impresses cats with his stroking, and offends pirates with his swearing.

He is now tired of writing in the third person. It’s getting weird. You get the point.
