EMBODIMENT

The path of Embodyssey begins with embodied experiences, involving internal and external awareness of environment and potential purposeful application within it. For example information may be obtained, knowledge is to be grasped, wisdom is applied. Embodiment experiences are more often the product of autodidactic submission, yielding humbling moments of Presence.

Training embodiment is a bit of a paradox, as it is an attempt at mastering skills of "intention with no intention". Many forms of martial arts offer this framework, but most unavoidably muster martial intent given their origins. Cowley developed Personal Circle Method as a non-martial approach to embodiment. Instead it employs an emphasis on subtlety and a relationship with open space rather than a target. The result is a mindful integrative path that adaptively embraces the "bigger picture". Therefore an equal amount of training is attributed to environmental connection and awareness.
