We’ve all been raised in a disembodied world – sitting at awkward desks for far too many hours, squinting at screens, learning through our brains alone, and thinking of our bodies as machines to feed with fuel rather than exquisite works of art to savor.

The result? We feel lethargic, isolated, disconnected and depleted. We develop strange diseases. We put on weight. We feel tense and uncreative.

The Body Intelligence Summit is here to change all that – helping open new vistas of aliveness, joy, creativity, vitality and FUN through the journey of becoming more deeply, beautifully and deliciously embodied.

The truth is that your body holds vast intelligence and wisdom – from the precise communication system of your nervous system, to the power of your muscles, to the distributed sensitivity of your skin. Modern science is just barely discovering how complexly creative, wonderfully balanced and intricately interconnected it all is.

Loving Your Body, Living Your Dreams and
Leading the Change

We are blessed to have all the magic and wonder of the universe, right here in our bodies, operating mostly without our conscious awareness.

What happens, though, when we DO bring our conscious awareness to our breath, our movement, our organs, our energy and our expressions? How much more powerful can we become? And how much more effective?

The next great frontier for us all to master is Body Intelligence. We grew up in a world that prioritized mental intelligence, and only recently learned that emotional intelligence is key for success in life. Now, we’re realizing that the intelligence needs to run all the way down to our very toes.

And that liberates us from all the old rigidities, discomfort and dis-ease that come from a mechanical way of treating our bodies.

People who have mastered Body Intelligence radiate more life force, joy and vitality. They are more creative. They live longer. They are more healthy, resilient and physically skilled. They are far more ably to live their dreams AND inspire positive change in others as well. As you master Body Intelligence, you become better able to create the kind of world you want to see.

Here’s a before and after chart to see what happens as you gain Body Intelligence:

Before Body Intelligence Visceral fear
Working hard
Low-level anxiety
Chronic body issues
Adrenal overdrive
After Body Intelligence
Embodied sense of love
Deeper connection
Fluid and flowing
Powerfully generative
Joyful ease
Dynamic energy
Radiant health
Relaxed energy

Do you want to make the shift into Body Intelligence?

That’s why we’re excited to bring you the world’s leading experts in this emerging field to help you make powerful changes around accessing your body wisdom and living more fully in the present moment.

The benefits will be profound, not only on a personal level, but professionally as well. This series is not just for personal growth; it’s also to activate and mobilize a whole new field of inquiry and exploration for all kinds of people – from doctors to dancers, bodyworkers to brain scientists.

We respect your privacy. Your information will never be sold nor shared without your permission.

For All Levels

Whatever your level of Body Intelligence, this series can help you go to the next level, drawing from neurobiology, breathwork, dance and emerging healing modalities to discover undiscovered potential that you’ve had available all the time. If you’re sedentary and listless, this will help put you on the path to vitality and joy. And if you’re a yoga teacher, you’ll learn far more about the intricacies of accessing and working with the body’s native intelligence.

Body Intelligence Assessment from Katie Hendricks and The Hendricks Institute

Don’t you love taking those quizzes in magazines? Here’s one that can actually help you change your life for the better! Body Intelligence pioneer Katie Hendricks put together this quick yet deep assessment to help you learn about where you are on the BI scale, and what your next steps might be.


Host Roundtable: A Joyous Introduction to Body Intelligence

Get ready for the summit! Meet your Body Intelligence Summit hosts Lamara Heartwell, Mark Metz and Gay & Katie Hendricks, as they have a lively discussion introducing you to Body Intelligence.


“Dance as a Life/Art Process” with Daria Halprin

Daria laid out a clear understanding of why creativity is so intrinsic to Body Intelligence, and how embodiment is such an important tool for understanding what’s really driving us. She shared what it was like to be born into the incredible body of work of her mother Anna Halprin and how she has helped shape it into the Life/Art Process that is now taught worldwide. Listen in and leave feeling inspired and ready to "vivify the life art bridge."


“Practicing Embodied Leadership On and Off the Dance Floor” with Vinn Arjuna Marti

In this dynamic recording Arjuna eloquently makes the case that when you practice pausing, breathing, moving with something arising within, you are able to respond differently in your day-to-day life. Listen in and let Arjuna guide you through a simple – but powerful! – practice to bring forth a deeper connection with your body, and quiet your mind.

Join us so we can send you your free gifts – and we’ll let you know when the next Body Intelligence Summit starts – so you can shift your body and your life into a higher octave of vitality, joy and connection with yourself. You’ll experience benefits on not just on the physical level, but emotionally and spiritually, too.

We respect your privacy. Your information will never be sold nor shared without your permission.
