Unearthing Wellbeing

Unearthing Wellbeing // Phillip Shepherd

June 9, 2021



I’m not sure how I got so lucky with this next guest. He has been an actor for all his life. But for me, his most powerful works which resonate with me and which open up a world of Unearthing Wellbeing in all it’s integrity in the journey of discovery are his books and talks. 

This next guest is Philip Shepherd who is recognized as a leader in the global embodiment movement. He is the creator of The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), which he developed over 40 years of teaching embodiment practices, and shares worldwide in both in workshops and Facilitators Trainings. 

TEPP uniquely combines the two resources necessary for embodiment: effective practices, and a deep understanding of our culture’s blind spots, which tend to keep us in our heads. TEPP is based on Philip’s two books – Radical Wholeness and New Self, New World – which articulate the causes, perils and challenges of our culture’s disembodiment. 

Philip’s personal journey to embodiment includes cycling alone as a teenager through Europe, the Middle East, Iran, India and Japan; studying classical Japanese Noh Theater; co-founding an interdisciplinary theatre company; and playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto. In the non-Covid world, he travels the world sharing workshops, and running year-long Facilitators Trainings with his co-director and wife Allyson Woodrooffe. 

For those like me who had never seen a murmuration of starlings, you will not want to miss this beautiful sight here.
