Dynamic Embodiment in Detail

Who are we:

Dynamic Embodiment Practitioners (DEP’s) are people who choose to learn about the use of empathetic rapport, patience, responsiveness, and fortitude as primary tools in the educational experience. Each DEP is gently challenged and equally supported to find creative inroads to meet their own professional dreams, integrating the best of somatic movement education. We work together to create new responses to the ever-changing conditions of people, places and things - finding meaning in all aspects of life on this earth in the 21st century! Everyone practices "thinking on one's feet" - improvising with body, mind, and spirit.

How Dynamic Embodiment Works

Dynamic Embodiment empowers people to have keen self-awareness skills, and to apply insights to help others. DE helps everyone take observation of self into life’s pursuits. With Dynamic Embodiment any sensitive person can learn to use Dr. Eddy’s integrative techniques to meet one’s own or a client or student’s needs at home and at work, as well as in our communities.
