Changing the world, one body at a time
By Sarah Ryan

What if everybody could enter conflict calmly and with compassion? What if everyone had the power to speak for what mattered to them the most? What if you really listened to what your body had to say? 
How might this change the world?

The Embodiment Conference wants to find out. For ten days this month, 1000 world-class teachers will convene to share their expertise, hard-won wisdom and practical tools for living a life more firmly rooted in the body. All streamed, round-the-clock, for free. Hundreds of thousands of people will gather online to watch, learn, discuss and digest, coming together in a global learning community. It could be the largest educational event in history. And it is for everybody. Every body.

Accessibility and inclusivity are two of the founding principles of TEC2020. Not to limit the learnings to those who fit a certain demographic, are able to travel or can afford to attend but to make this wisdom available to the whole world. Whatever your gender, location, ability or race; if you have a body, you have a place.
The conference welcomes expert speakers in therapy, martial arts, yoga, dance, bodywork, ecology and meditation but you don’t have to be a yogi, dancer or martial artist to take part. The learnings shared will be suitable for you whether it’s your first experience of embodiment ever or you’re an expert yourself. It is for the able and the disabled. Whoever you are and whatever your ability, if you have a body, you have a place. 

Currently, 300,000+ people have signed up, forming a supportive, international embodiment community. More than 10% are engaged in an active Facebook group. 200 are volunteers. At a time of physical separation and political polarisation, The Embodiment Conference is bringing people home to the body, together.

Language is critical. After all, it’s the main way we connect, share ideas and turn thoughts into collective action. So recordings of all the keynote sessions, led by teachers such as Dr. Gabor Maté, Charles Eisenstein and Tara Brach, will be subtitled and translated into eight of the 12 most widely spoken languages. There’s the potential to reach up to 4.76 billion people. 61% of the world’s population.

Technology is critical and the team have actively engaged in research, testing and discussion, inviting input from all members of the community to make it increasingly accessible in the most practical ways.
“My vision has been to call people in,” says Cheryl Whitelaw, Diversity and Inclusion Consultant for the summit. “To invite participation from people of every social or economic status; of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions and sexual orientations. Free from discrimination, patronisation or harassment.” 

What would this really mean for the world? Let’s not talk in abstracts. The first Embodiment Conference, in 2018, reached 15,000 people from over 80 countries and that community didn’t dissipate when the conference was over. When COVID spread across the world, they organised 80 free online sessions every week, in 18 languages, to connect isolated people. 100 trauma professionals offered resilience training to doctors and nurses working in exceptionally stressful conditions all over the world. These are real-world effects. This is real change. 

Mark Walsh, founder of TEC2020, “We want the conference to be accessible to people of all different backgrounds, all different styles, all different bodies. Our mission is to make the world’s embodied wisdom available to everyone, free of charge.”
