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

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

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.
