Last weekend I retreated to the Omega Institute
and spent approximately 12 hours over a
2-1/2 day period dancing with Gabrielle Roth and 92
other wonderful people to the invigorating, pulsating
beat of drummers.
I was put back in touch with the wisdom of our body as
a "cathedral of bones", and how this cathedral cannot
help but tell the truth of our story as well as relay to us
our unfolding destiny.
This body of yours is just "dying"
(because let's face it - no one gets out of here alive!)
for you to engage with it, learn from it, and enlighten it
with what it is about to become.
This issue is dedicated to the wisdom of our body.
In wild abandon to the truth that each person contains
In many of my workshops, I ask the
participants, "Where in your body does
your core strength live?" I am used to getting
blank looks when I ask that question. It requires
getting out of the head (hint: it's not in there!) and
into the body through the breath. After doing this, a
new level of
awareness appears in the room.
Try this now: Close your eyes, take three deep slow
breaths and sink into the center of your body. Notice
what happens. You may notice
that your perspective
shifts (where is that center anyway?), your awareness
increases, and voila! You are
along the path to discovering your core strength.
If you don't know where your core strength resides,
how could you ever be expected to access it and bring
it out into the world?
The answer to my opening question is accessible
to every single one of us! No one is exempt due to
gender, age, body type or disability. We all have a
core that is power packed, alive, juicy and more than
willing to clue us in. The location is different for
everyone, but we all share the gift of being able to
access it through the magnificent channel of never
ending information, the body.
Learn how to live from your core by taking part in a
coaching circle, attending a free talk, or by creating a
one-on-one relationship with Stephanie. Give
yourself the gift
that lasts a lifetime as you create the space to live in a
way that mirrors who you really are at the

revolutionary work with "The 5 Rhythms."

|Space to MOVE
Are you all too familiar with the "blahs"? For those of
you who are not, they are moments or days when
you feel emotionally stagnant, physically
unaware or depressed. One of the most effective ways
to move the blahs to another stratosphere is to get up
and move your physical body.
Try this the next time you experience that non-feeling
state: Drag yourself to the nearest CD player and
play a piece of music that inspires you.
Cuban, African, Rock and Roll, Classical - it doesn't
matter. It just needs to inspire you.
What wants to move? Trust the wisdom of what
unfolds. Put your head on the proverbial shelf
and feel into your feet. Feel where and how they touch
the earth. Exaggerate your feelings of stuckness.
Where do you experience the blahs in your body?
Let your feet direct the movement in your knees,
feel your hips move from your feet, your chest, your
hands, and only
then invite your head to the dance. After
movement, space is created, things open that were
once closed, and you have re-entered the only home
you can truly call your own.
Now, move about your day and notice what feelings
arise, keeping the question alive: "What does it
mean to live from this body?"
This is not a thinking question. Come from your core
and move, and then sit down and write what you
discover. Happy reuniting with the power that is YOU!
Stephanie's clients are saying:"You are
incredibly insightful and powerful. I
love your questions and how you go after it in people,

"I feel compelled to say, you are changing the
world Stephanie. I know you have changed mine.
With immense gratitude, Carol" - CO
What would your world look like if you were to live your
truth more fully? Think about this seriously, as
living out this question may quite possibly be our only
true earthly duty.
