A Comprehensive, Research-Based Approach to Cultivating Embodied Intelligence
Embodied Intelligence: Activating the Wisdom of the Whole Self
UZAZU provides a comprehensive yet flexible framework for facilitating change that is based on nine simple postures and movements, while also supporting organic, intuitive, and creative exploration. It helps make sense of both our own felt experience and our experience with others, in service of optimally adapting and responding to our environment in a highly individualised way.
Based on two decades of research and development, UZAZU Embodied Intelligence provides a clear, integrative model and method to understand, identify, and rapidly shift states that are dysregulated or otherwise disruptive.
The UZAZU method helps professionals identify where, and in which contexts, someone’s mind-body integration is becoming compromised or distorted. It equips those who use it with a combination of specific postures, movements and mental frames to cultivate the states that will help them restore and strengthen their capacity to sense and respond to life.
It also provides facilitators with the tools and strategies that can be easily integrated with other modalities, to work through deeper issues and nurture a client’s long-term growth in a developmentally informed way.
Who the training is for
The professional-focused training of UZAZU Embodied Intelligence is designed to easily and effectively complement your existing methods and tools.
We welcome you to attend this training if you are a coach, facilitator, psychotherapist, somatic therapist, social worker, counsellor or other helping professional. While the training focuses on 1:1 work, experienced group facilitators will benefit from this work, by utilising the model to support their own embodiment and to become more attuned and responsive to the needs of the group they are facilitating.
(Note: While this foundational workshop does not allow you to explicitly teach or advertise UZAZU as a model to groups, Foundations ‘graduates’ are welcome to introduce one or two simple elements of UZAZU as a resource or exercise in group contexts).

“UZAZU Embodied Intelligence really offered the map, the framework, the developmental structure, and then tools to support someone. Now that I have an embodied map, I can take any issue and map it with UZAZU and get a much more well rounded view of ‘this is what’s going on’, so I can get to the roots of the issue easier.”
