Do you train, teach, or coach others?
Great, then you probably know that the body matters.
As embodiment specialists, we can help you work pragmatically with the body, including in corporate and other ‘mainstream’ environments.
In this course, you deepen your own embodied wisdom and learn how to guide others on that journey. You’ll also connect to a supportive, diverse community of change-makers, community-builders and ass-kickers.
For us, this work is also about making the world a better place. A big reason things are screwed up is that people are disconnected from their bodies, which means they’re disconnected from themselves, others and the planet. Embodiment is vital for reconnection.
“Embodiment is my obsession, my life’s work and my chosen field for helping to unfuck the planet, whilst enjoying the kick-arse circus of being human all the more. EFC has been built over the last five years from the sweat and tears of wonderful people. It’s well structured, well organised, tried and tested, and it really does the job. EFC has grown beyond my own flaws into something special and I love being a fire-starter in that.”
Mark Walsh, EFC founder and co-lead trainer

What is the Embodied Facilitator Course?
EFC is a personal growth and professional skills training course. It’s been running for eight successful years.
EFC lasts for eight months and is deep, intense and a lot of fun. It requires a serious commitment, which includes attending four in-person intensive modules and three online modules, plus completing homework.
We work with posture, breathing, movement, and patterns of attention and intention. There’s a balance between exploring your own embodiment for deep insight into your patterns, and practical tools you can use with others.
Embodied work comes from different roots, including martial arts, body therapy, dance, mindfulness, spirituality, therapy and the arts. Our team come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Alongside embodiment leaders Mark Walsh and Masa Nobolio, we’ve handpicked some top international guest trainers. Our facilitators have over 100,000 hours of experience between them. We’re confident EFC will put you at the forefront of this field.
