Join our global community for a transformational experience as we come together to celebrate World Meditation Day, and come away with invaluable skills to use in your daily life.
Every experience, emotion, action, or reaction we’ve ever been through is stored in our body archive – a sort of inner library of our lives. Tapping into the felt sense through Alchemy Meditation is like having a key to that library.
Being able to access our unconscious emotions empowers us to process them and begin the journey to healing.
Coined by philosopher Eugene Gendlin, ‘felt sense’ describes a connection between our mind and body. You might also hear it described as ‘bodily awareness’.
A physical rather than mental experience, felt sense is a combination of emotion, awareness, intuitiveness and embodiment. Like a ‘gut feeling’, or the way a particular piece of music moves you, or that warm, fuzzy feeling when you see a friend after a long time.
Studies have found our ability to reference our sensations and feelings within our own body has a remarkable impact on the outcome of therapy.
During this free, one-off event, you’ll be guided through a 40-minute Alchemy Meditation designed to help you begin reconnecting to your felt sense.
Learn how to identify body sensations that may have previously gone unnoticed, caused confusion, or even discomfort. Begin to recognise signs of unconscious emotions – the first step towards enhancing your self-awareness, emotional intelligence and communication skills.
Pablo Castro has been a facilitator and trainer with Alchemy of Breath for over four years, holding space for thousands of breathers and guiding hundreds of students to becoming breathwork facilitators. He created our free World Meditation Day event to share the transformational power of somatic meditation and the felt sense.
This mediation is like saying, “Alright life, I’m here and I’m ready!” I believe it’s one of the strongest therapies around – and only we can do the work.”
Alchemy meditation has allowed me to have access to my deeper self, intuition, and my own healing power potential. With Alchemy Meditation, I do quickly slow down my thoughts more than just simply noticing my breath awareness. By doing so, it feels like I’m having an intimate conversation with my inner self, which charges my soul. I learn to trust myself more and more with this meditation. Jihyun Choi
Every time I do an Alchemy meditation with Pablo, I have the most profound experience and I feel so many things shift afterward! This is one of my favorite meditations to connect with myself on a deep level. Keryn-Leigh
The AOB meditation with Pablo is such an amazing tool to drop into your felt sense and connect with yourself! Pablo guides with his heart and creates a loving space of exploration. Thank you, Pablo! Jacynthe Côté
Alchemy meditation is so many things: it’s a way to drop into the here and now, to the present moment, drop into the temple of your body and raise your body awareness. The practice brings calmness and often leads to insights. I love to take part and facilitate it. Michal Piasecki
