In today’s episode, we talk with Philip Shepherd – a recognized international authority on embodiment. Philip travels the world teaching The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), which is a unique set of practices he developed for getting us out of our heads and reconnected with the profound intelligence of the body.
He is the author of two ground-breaking books, New Self, New World: Recovering Our Senses in the Twenty-first Century, and the newly published Radical Wholeness: The Embodied Present and the Ordinary Grace of Being. The books draw on a lifetime of research and experience and have been widely acclaimed for their original vision.
Philip has a passion for adventure and exploration, and throughout his life it has been coupled with deep connection to the body’s intelligence, and a burning desire for freedom. At 18 those passions led him from his native Canada to cycle alone through Europe, the Middle East, Iran, India and Japan. He studied classical Noh Theater in Japan, and has since designed and built several houses, co-founded an arts magazine, Onion, co-founded an interdisciplinary theater company, taught workshops on embodied thinking and presence, wrote two internationally produced plays and a television documentary, and earned a reputation as a corporate coach. Philip has also been an actor his whole life, and has played lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto.
In our conversation, Philip shares the essence of The Embodied Present Process™ (TEPP), where it comes from, and why it is so essential for our health and well-being. Through TEPP, we can tune into the profound intelligence of our body, bringing us into greater clarity, peace and a deeper connection with the world. Philip further explains the myth of independence and how the true path to wisdom lies in recognizing how we are all one and getting out of our head and into our body.
