Being In Movement Online Lab

How to facilitate whole-person empowerment 

Being In Movement® MindBody Education

with Paul Linden, PhD - founder of the method - and a seasoned international BIM Faculty

Transform your coaching and facilitation with the power of radical embodied awareness and choice

The body is a critical part of who we are. Including it in professional coaching and facilitation strongly enhances their impact. 

It deepens awareness of self, others and relationships, opens the possibility for whole-person change and supports effective, long-lasting transformation. It is the gateway to a potent reconfiguration of our patterns of being, meaning-making and relating, as well as the neural pathways they are embedded in.

But not under any condition.

Many embodiment methods / approaches - even some of the world’s best-known ones – are, at their core, technique-based and prescriptive. “ In the face of challenge X, or to elicit outcome Y, do Z.”

But in the face of an ever-more complex world and a rapidly-evolving landscape of client issues, this is not good enough anymore.

We need more agile and creative interventions / approaches for whole-person coaching and facilitation.

There is a much deeper potential in embodied facilitation.

One where both the coach and the coachee are infinitely empowered to create and transform :

  • An empowered client who is invited to step fully into the driver’s seat, by acknowledging and harnessing their response-ability for their state of being, relationships and outcomes. 
  • An empowered coach, facilitator, or therapist, able to design on the fly the exact unique practice, exercise or simulator that responds to the challenge at hand.

Take your embodied coaching and facilitation to its next stage, by learning the core creative principles of a high-impact embodiment approach / method.

Join us in this 8-WEEK in-depth dive into the Being in Movement® MindBody Education method with its founder & embodiment master, Paul Linden, and his most seasoned practitioners worldwide.

Things people have said
about Paul Linden's work:

"Paul Linden is gifted at uncovering energetic and emotional patterns that impede one’s capacity to be relaxed and fluid under pressure. He has a clear and gentle way of imprinting alternative skilful patterns so the body can recover a more unified, life-affirming way of being."

Wendy Palmer
Founder of Leadership Embodiment | USA

"Working with Paul has transformed my coaching practice and my life. His teaching is masterful. Don’t miss the opportunity to work with him – the insights and clear meaningful application will change the way you live and work"

Fiona Buckland
Business coach and embodied facilitator | UK

"Paul teaches you practical, life-applicable skills. His instructions are easy to understand and follow. He is kind, brilliant, funny as hell, and you’re guaranteed to learn while laughing. He doesn’t teach by preaching, but by showing, so you’ll be learning through direct experience, with insights from your own feelings, in your own body, which is the kind of learning that sticks with you."

Tana Saler
Coach & Teacher | Ontario, Canada

"I appreciate the weight of Paul’s experience, mood, humour, teaching method, level of care for student development, quality of presence. Linden is a master."

Sindre Haga Andreassen
Therapist, somatic educator and father | Oslo, Norway

"Paul reaches the inner child, with his gentle manner and his deadpan humour! He creates an atmosphere of safety and respect, in groups, which is perfect for deep learning. He is extraordinarily humble for someone so talented and wise. He lives his work, there’s no mask or act, his integrity and big heart and power to help others to learn are all 100% authentic. I especially love his down-to-earth communication style – no waffle! Paul is highly intelligent and highly educated, but doesn’t strut these assets, instead using his patented Spaghetti Method of teaching! Don’t know what that is? Go to his workshops and find out!"

Fiona Kelty
Aikido teacher | Dublin, Ireland

"Working with Paul Linden is intuitive, fun, deep, profound, common-sensical and alive. A unique opportunity to learn from deep wisdom, mastery and experience. "

Arabella Smirnova-Beroskin
Embodied Facilitator, Operations Manager

Frequently Asked Questions

Our clients often ask me about the efficiency of online embodied learning, coaching or facilitation. From out experience, it actually works powerfully ! -Both as a stand-alone or in complement with in-person work. Except for touch maybe, online technology enables all powerful dimensions of embodied work : working with visual and verbal stimulation, or imagery for instance. Additionally, our work formats will blend large group teachings, debriefs, Q&As, as well as working in pairs or small groups for practice and learning integration.

Also, due to his health condition, Paul has reduced significantly his travel ... and subsequently developed a remarkable proficiency at transmitting his work online. We are passionate about making his outstanding work be more known internationally to benefit thousands of professionals; this is why we suggested him this project.

All your course materials will be fully accessible and downloadable in our online Course Environment for 6 months after the end of the programme.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We'll be delighted to support you and answer any questions you may have on the programme or on Paul's work more broadly.
