Self Portraits As An Embodiment Practice
I’m sharing my process so you can get to know me and what I do a little more. I'd also love for you try to this practice out yourself. Through my art, in this case self study, I process as well as express what I’m going through. The relationship I have with myself, my environment and the people around me shows me where I'm at in any moment.
After the last couple of years I've found that this restricted feeling has continued, I'm slowly relearning how to move in this new world. In honour of our bodies and of freedom - let us pay homage to these temples that we often take for granted and even criticise. Feeling "in" our bodies doesn’t always come naturally, with so many distractions pulling us "out". My intention here is to arrive within the body. I invite you to come back home, through this practice we can get to know ourselves more deeply.
I’m going to show you my process in images rather than tell you what I do step by step. There is no right or wrong way and much space to make this process your own. I’d love to know if you have any questions and to hear how it goes. More than the outcome it’s the time you spend with yourself that is important.
I use this practice to accept my body as it is. Seeing myself as form, shapes and lines helps me to detach from my appearance, creating space between me and how I look. This process helps me to unravel beliefs about my body. Through sharing this practice, I hope you feel as though it is available to you too.
