With Bestselling Author & Body Awareness Pioneer
Are you ready to move beyond the ways you dislike, mistreat or ignore your body and the stress, fatigue and overwhelm you experience as a result?
Are you ready for more connection, creativity and flow in your life — especially in creating fulfilling relationships and manifesting your most heartfelt dreams?
When you transform the way you relate to your body, you can liberate the innate wisdom in your cells and fill your life with more enjoyment, energy and ease.
Deep, delicious embodiment is not only more pleasurable, it contributes to better health, a longer life, stronger relationships — and even more creativity! You eat better, you laugh more and you have more satisfying sex. You release your distractions and subtle addictions and experience more joy in each moment.
Science supports these conclusions, which also relates to our lived experience. When we are more connected with our bodies — as when we are dancing, at a yoga retreat or on a tropical getaway — we just FEEL better.
So the question isn’t if it’s valuable to become more embodied, the only real question is how to go about it?
How do we unravel centuries of cultural programming and years of institutionalized learning that teaches us that we should live in our heads — with our bodies treated like unconscious, inconvenient machines — rather than seeing them as the vibrant vessels of amazing intelligence and emerging energies that they are?
How do we use our body to heal our relationships, open more fully to intimacy as well as to infuse our professional lives with more creativity and inspiration?
How do we unwind stress and fear patterns that keep us contracted, anxious and just plain strung out?
The answer is actually simple: Open to your body’s natural intelligence. However, the path to accomplishing this requires wisdom, healing and daily practice.
That’s because millennia of suspicion (and even hatred) of the body have left a legacy of self-abuse, dissociation and an inherited mind-body split. This can lead you to mistreat and ignore your body — leaving you fatigued, unfocused, stressed and depressed — which then saps your creative powers and damages your relationships.
This may happen on a very subtle level. You may not be conscious you are doing it, but the damage to your life is painfully evident.
It’s no wonder we have dozens of health epidemics — from obesity to depression — because we don’t honor them with the deep care and respect they deserve. We brag about getting little sleep. We push ourselves to exhaustion. We jack up our nervous system on caffeine. And we spend countless hours sedentary in front of screens.
The great news is that it’s NOT actually burdensome (or tiring or overwhelming) to make a profound shift in this area. In fact, it can become a source of more joy, energy AND positivity for you.
We’re not talking about deprivation diets or painful workouts, but about giving yourself time throughout the day to learn how to feel better and better in your skin. More connected. Grounded. Alive. Alert. And far less stressed.
As you do this, you will find yourself becoming more optimistic and magnetic — more excited by your daily life and more available in your relationships with others
These changes won’t happen overnight, but they WILL happen gracefully as a result of shifting your awareness deeper into your body and creating practices throughout the day that reconnect you with your inherent vibrancy and vitality.
When you value what your body is communicating to you, you open the doors to a level of vitality that cannot be achieved by following advice from a book, outside authorities or even great visionary blogs and social media tips. Every BODY has a different road map, and by becoming intimate with what your own body is asking for, you unleash your inner physician.
From this level of nourishment throughout your daily life, you regenerate and enliven yourself brain to toes, inside you and with others. You create “in the moment” experiments in daily life and in each interaction. You know you’re journeying on the right track when you notice feeling energized by your choices (as though your cells are humming the words “Thank You”).
As you access your natural body intelligence, it shifts your mind in a positive direction — away from negative thoughts and toward creative connection. When you do this, you expand your capacity to give and receive love, your creativity flows more naturally and you live more freely. Distractions and subtle addictions also lose their power — and you experience more joy in each moment.
It’s really about learning to access and sustain a state of embodied flow — exquisitely attuned to the rhythms of life, the waves of emotions and a deep sense of interconnection.
Body intelligence is the direct, consciously felt experience of being alive, from the flow of blood and sensation to the many attitudes and mental shifts that weave with our responses to being in a body, in relationships, work and the world.
We have been taught to fear our bodies and to not listen with caring and interest, as though we’d turn into hedonistic, out of control gluttons if we did. The inventor of the light bulb, Thomas Edison, famously declared, “The chief function of the body is to carry the brain around.” Many people today seem to agree or not to be aware of the amazing and expanding resourcefulness that lies in our cells.
Consider instead the perspective of Joseph Campbell: “I think that what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive. ”
A Roadmap to Manifesting Vibrant Health,
Relationships and Careers
In this unique virtual program, Katie Hendricks — one of the world’s leading pioneers of body intelligence and co-host of the groundbreaking Body Intelligence Summit — will take you on a delightful journey of embodiment that weaves many threads of scientific research, psychological insight, relationship building and embodied practice together.
Katie will show you how learning to apply body intelligence skillfully is at the heart of living a deeply fulfilling, meaningful and joyful life.
And Katie will teach you how to apply body intelligence in 7 fundamental areas of your day-to-day life, allowing you to inhabit your body in a new way — one that is more enlivening, connected AND effective.
You’ll discover that you can heal the mind-body split and learn to infuse your conscious awareness back intoyour cells. You can reconnect with your body intelligence, which in turn, boosts your IQ, emotional intelligence and relational intelligence as well.
The result? You feel more ALIVE, connected and creative. You engage in your relationships and vocations with gusto and grace, passion and purpose.
Lasting changes like these do require a community of support in order to fundamentally shift habits and patterns that have taken years to develop. And it especially helps to have the latest wisdom and daily practices that have been proven to truly work.
That’s why we are so delighted to present this Body Intelligence in Action program — which builds upon the enlightening information shared during the groundbreaking Body Intelligence Summit.

What you’ll learn from these body intelligence pioneers are the leading-edge insights and time-tested practices that allow you to experience whole new levels of aliveness and joy, especially in the realms of relationship and creative manifestation. As you do this, it liberates new sources of wisdom, intuition, energy — and even creative solutions. This translates not only into personal enjoyment and better relationships, but also into more professional success as your vitality and enthusiasm magnetically attracts clients, colleagues and partners.
During this program, you’ll learn to apply several important daily practices that provide you with access to more freedom and flow, joy and creative intelligence.
You’ll learn to:
- Recognize and shift your “upper limit” patterns.

Body Intelligence in Action is designed to give you the direct experience of feeling alive, engaged and supported by your deep appreciation and curiosity. Body intelligence in action can guide empowered decisions, embodied expansion throughout life, the pleasure of savoring your present experience and opening to let life move through you with more ease and deep connection to your purpose.
The body intelligence movement is rapidly building in research and popular culture — from dancing flash mobs to studies about the positive difference body awareness brings to health and business success. And the Body Intelligence in Action program will give you the best of this emerging discipline — all in a form that allows you to put it into juicy practice, while releasing the disconnected feelings of the past.
The course is based on Katie and Gay Hendricks’ passionate engagement with body wisdom for many decades and will include body intelligence skills from their new book, Conscious Loving Ever After.
So if you’re ready to increase the level of energy, joy, clarity and connection in your life, this program will provide you with a gateway into a bright new world of possibility.
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational training, Katie will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies that you’ll need to discover your true body intelligence quotient (BQ) for living a more vital, balanced and love-filled life.
Each module will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to recognize and be guided by your body’s wisdom.
We are delighted to announce that renowned author and teacher Gay Hendricks will be a guest teacher for this course, teaching Module 3: Freeing Up Emotional States and co-teaching the final session with Katie, Module 7: Manifesting with Ease.
Module 1: Breathing & Moving into Authentic Relationship with Yourself
& Others (Recorded March 16)
A question central to relationship can only be answered with Body Intelligence: Are you fully open to intimacy or unconsciously defending yourself against it? Are you willing to shift from criticism and adrenaline-fueled living to the full flow of aliveness? This session focuses on the power of breath, movement and presence to expand your ability to enjoy being completely with yourself and completely open to relating, exploring and expanding in love every day.
In this session you learn to:
- Recognize and shift your personal upper limit patterns — the ways in which you’ve unconsciously learned to stop yourself from enjoying more love and positive energy every day.
- Release the inner critic and open a nourishing experiencing of genuine self-care.
- Notice body language that indicates openness or resistance to intimacy.
- Breathe in ways that support you loving yourself and loving the feelings that arise in relationship.
- Cultivate a new Body Intelligence skill, Heliotroping, which gives you the ability to shift back to presence when you’ve drifted into old patterns.
Module 2: Presencing Power (Recorded March 23)
Presencing is the ability to show up and participate fully in your life and relationships. Presencing is the moment-by-moment practice of paying affectionate attention to the current reality, whatever it is. This session focuses on the experiential tools that enhance your ability to be present, especially in relationship, whether romantic, business or friendship.
- The foundational skills that enhance presence and assist you in returning to the now when relationship challenges arise.
- How to shift from fear and reactivity to flow so you can call on your deep resources to participate fully and creatively in life.
- The core presencing skills that create flow and creativity throughout your day.
- How to apply presencing skills so that common relationship issues resolve spontaneously.
- The nonverbal presencing skills that shift issues and enhance creativity faster than “working” on relationship issues.
Module 3: Freeing Up Emotional States
With Guest Faculty Gay Hendricks (Recorded March 30)
Body intelligence skills make changing an emotional state easy and even fun. The Ten-Second Miracle Moves give you powerful body-centered skills that free your creative and relating ability to be more effective and responsive, rather than reactive.
You’ll learn 7 specific processes we call the Ten-Second Miracles. Each rapidly brings about clarity, ease and understanding — and are designed to be used “in the heat of action.”
- Feeling Through to Space
- Naming Energy Shifts
- Speaking From Discovery
- Whole-Body Accepting
- Immediate Ownership
- Leading With Appreciation
Module 4: Resonance (Recorded April 6)
Resonance — the Body Intelligence skill of tuning in sensitively to ourselves and another person — is a primary skill for those who want to enjoy the maximum amount of love and good feelings throughout the day and in all your relationships. Your ability to sense inside and reflect deeply with another creates a third state we call the “We-Field.” The We-Field is a new state of consciousness that generates ongoing vitality and co-creativity in relationships.
You’ll learn a skill set in this session that allows you to:
- Shift from resistance to engagement with the ever-flowing dynamics of life.
- Listen with your whole body in a way that opens greater intimacy between listener and speaker.
- Speak from awareness and discovery, rather than rehearsing or rehashing.
- Increase your sensitive awareness of your own inner landscape, feelings and the inner life of others.
Module 5: Opening to Creative Flow (Recorded April 13)
There is both an art and a science to opening a creative flow between people. Relationship researchers refer to certain types of actions as “bids for attention.” When you learn how to give attention to another person’s bids for attention, you can eliminate conflict and enhance the creative flow between yourself and others. In addition, learning how to open and nurture your inner creative flow is an essential precursor to manifesting what you want in your overall life.
You’ll learn to:
- See openings to creative flow, and notice and give attention to positive possibilities and solutions rather than looking for what’s wrong.
- Use your body intelligence to make decisions quickly and effectively.
- Develop your creativity ‘muscles’ with specific practices that only take 10 minutes a day.
Module 6: Embodying Wonder (Recorded April 20)
A specific way to shift from blame to wonder is a core skill to enhance relationships and creativity. This session focuses on a specific body intelligence tool: Wonder Shift, which takes you from experiencing life as a victim to experiencing life as a person of true creative power.
- A primary transformation process we developed called FACT, an acronym for Facing, Accepting, Choosing and Taking Action.
- How to make the Wonder Shift in the midst of conflict, both within yourself and in relationship to others in relationship.
- How to generate your own powerful Wonder Shift questions.
- How to explore and release the limiting belief systems that may be preventing your relationship harmony and ability to manifest the things you want easefully.
Module 7: Manifesting with Ease
With Co-faculty Gay Hendricks (Recorded April 27)
Body Intelligence skills take the effort out of manifestation, the ability to make real the dreams in your life. We have been exploring manifestation in our own lives, and teaching about to others, for more than 35 years now. We have developed a powerful set of practices, none taking longer than 10 minutes and many that can be done in 10 seconds. We’ll share our personal experiments in manifestation as well as stories from people who have successfully used these techniques.
- A new way to understand and practice manifestation, based on paradigms from Newtonian, Einsteinian and Quantum physics.
- Practical manifestation techniques based on the three physics paradigms.
- Manifestation techniques that transform relationships.
- How to integrate all the skills you’ve been practicing in previous weeks to manifest the life and relationship of your dreams.

– Dorien Bietz, Koh Samui, Thailand
This course helped me connect to my body in a new way through the experiential exercises that facilitated bottom up wisdom and learning. I have a lot to learn, but I used one of the exercises to help me make a decision about whether or not to take a position. It was the first time I tuned into my body for wisdom, which helped me feel settled in the decision.
– Nicole French, PsyD, Greenville, SC
The instructors’ expertise, enthusiasm and sharing from personal experiences in their own lives really was helpful for me to feel connected. This is deep work, and it can be fun too, which certainly is a motivator for me!
– Carol Browning, Ashland, OR
I find this course useful for anyone who wishes to see their body as their friend and ally; the exercises and the encouragement of the Hendricks’ helped me enormously in communicating with my body, and finding information about emotions and health to which my mind alone had no access.
– Polly, Kansas City, MO
Katie and Gay Hendricks practice what they preach, elegantly built on and paced their invigorating explorations of Body Intelligence. That they illustrated from their life experiences and engaged spontaneously while teaching amplified and enlivened my felt experiences. Also their profound ideas were simple and down-to-earth enough to grasp in theory. Brava, bravo!
