The single biggest hurdle to doing more embodied movement practice, for me personally, is the tight grip of urgency I often feel around time.
Today on the podcast, I’m chatting with Rochelle Schieck, founder of the Qoya movement method. A big part of our conversation is exploring how we unwind the urgency of linear time & use the body as a portal to soul time.
Rochelle & I have very different felt experiences of this shift away from urgent-linear-time into expansive-soul-time. I’m curious if you’ll relate to either or perhaps experience it in another way.
