The Living Embodiment Lab
A 3 month, immersive group movement series with Jocelyn Steury
Begins December 5th
IN THIS LAB WE WILL ENGAGE THE PROFOUND TOOLS OF:
∴ Dance medicine
∴ Mindful ritual
∴ The Prayers In Motion Practice
WE WILL DO THIS TO:
∴ Grow conscious community
∴ Tend our creative fire
∴ Commune with our inherent somatic wisdom
∴ Hydrate our inner well of inspiration
∴ Cultivate an embodied relationship with our series theme
OUR UPCOMING THEME IS:
The NATURE of POWER
The word power is edgy. And I like edgy words.
Edgy words indicate a threshold.
Edgy words suggest there’s something beyond the solid ground where we’ve been standing.
Power, like so many other words and energies, has become associated with something it doesn’t actually represent.
It’s been co-opted by the narrative of
Good and Evil.
Strong and Weak.
It has been removed from its source template.
Power, as modeled by the cycles of nature, is an energy that inspires birth, initiates growth, nourishes life and dissolves life inside the alchemical cauldron of death.
Hear me when I say, power is the soft, supple, sinuous force of Nature, yet it forces nothing.
It is an interwoven, interdependent presence.
It is a tantric field of call and response.
The NATURE of POWER is an ancient, infinite nectar that is sourced from our memory of the divine feminine directive.
And it’s time to resurface this memory IN OUR BODIES.
Are you ready?
Are you ready to embody the NATURE of true POWER?
My experience in the lab was a tender and soulful journey. The embodied prayers became anthems for myself and my family. Jocelyn held an intuitive space in our 1:1 work that was piercing while also nurtured and gracious. Like a true alchemist, she will help to teach your body how to speak in the between spaces.

A Note From Jocelyn
Time and time again, when I offer my body the nectar of loving presence, my self-trust deepens and my mindful attention brightens.
The greatest healing experiences of my life, continue to emerge through this channel of radical self-trust and bright attention.
Trust in my body. Attention to my tenderness.
Trust in my inherent worth. Attention to my vulnerability.
Trust in my essential nature. Attention to my innate power.
I am here to help you nurture this trust and this attention.
We will bring it with us as we receive and transmit miracles through movement.
We will honor it as the source of alchemy it is and we will cultivate the atmosphere of our attention so we can embody the truest truth.
We are patient prayers living on the lips of holy mystery.
The Prayers In Motion practice grew out of my personal experience with the transformative nature of words and movement. It grew out of my deepest knowing that our bodies are the Original Garden and it's our birthright to return.
I bring this practice to you now, along with the complimentary magic of dance medicine, conscious ritual and somatic centering, to fan the flames of our essential nature.
We do this together because we came here together.
I'm here for it.
I'm here for you.
I'm here for us.

The lab is not just a dance class. It’s a space where you can release anything you hold on to. It’s a gathering of people who hold you up with love and without judgment. Jocelyn has a way of tapping into each person and the group as a whole. Her teachings are absorbed through the skin’s contact with itself. The words are absorbed into the heart and mind. All of it fuses with the music that holds us to a rhythm of total embodiment.
