Emboditate, (“EM” for short) emerged from a context that is different from most meditation traditions which orient around dogmas, religion or popular psychology. At it’s heart is the verisimilitude that the primary reality of the human is organismic. This practical orientation makes it easier to access the autonomic nervous system — the control center for all key systems in the body.
EM is a process for discovering your own path, while drawing any resources you need from a fiercely supportive tribe. You will learn how to move from pain, suffering and symptoms to the profound simultaneity of ecstatic joy, sense of purpose and intellectual acuity. You will develop greater rapport with the robust foundations of healing and creativity that lie within you, and that exist solely to vitalize your life. You will have many “aha” moments that your worldly life is — quite literally — just a reflection of your inner situation; malleable and as easy to shape shift as “play-doh.” You will begin to live relaxed in the deeply felt sense that everything in your life IS in excellent order.
EM is designed as a 2 fold set of cues and prompts, the first — to learn from and support — the breath, movement and sound (that’s right, sound) of our precious and highly intelligent organism — always communicating with us through the domain of feeling and sensation. The second set of cues and prompts support how we use language and inquiry — central to the shaping of the “play-doh” that is our life and the world we live in.
EM will show you the ropes for finding the codes to re-set your autonomic nervous system to what YOU want, freeing you from survival mode that breeds habits of thought and emotion that lead to hustling and angling to get ahead.
EM will prepare you with easy practices for living more fully in your playful, feminine, intelligent body as an influencer, a leader and powerful difference maker in today’s world.
EM is unique, offering guided instruction to help students navigate their depths, while giving a tremendous amount of agency for exploring the bounds of both the organismic and intellectual self. The practice becomes a love affair — deeply satisfying and heart opening as you arrive again and again at the Inherent Intelligence within, that is your sacred body and soul.

What drew me to work with Gina is her collaborative approach to meditation – together discovering the pathways to a deeper dive, respecting that each person’s experience is unique. Gina’s curiosity, coupled with her demonstration of active learning with humility, are the hallmarks of a great teacher – one who is along for the ride and recognizes that the individual is in charge of their path and their healing. There is a great sense of safety derived from this kind of relationship, and therefore, a great opening up to possibilities within and without.
