What UZAZU can 'Do' for You
Discover the 'two main benefits' people are experiencing as a result of doing UZAZU Embodiment Practice...
A short preface from the founder...
It's been over 15 years now, that I've been touring, teaching and coaching people from all walks of life, using the UZAZU Dynamic Embodiment method. As I listened to what people were saying about their experience of practicing Dynamic Embodiment, I discovered there were two main kinds of 'benefits' they tend to talk about a lot. They tend to say things like:
>>> "I'm less stuck in my head now & more grounded in my body."
>>> "I feel much more empowered now, in many different areas of my life!"
Informed by that, here's one way I've come to define this work:
Practicing UZAZU Dynamic Embodiment allows you to relieve the overload & stress on your mind by re-integrating awareness & intelligence through your whole body — so you naturally become more empowered to fully respond to the invitation of each moment.
I encourage you to read on below to get a more concrete sense of how that process, that shift into a more fully embodied way of living, tends to benefit people in their lives.
- Yours in embodied well-being,
1. It gets you out of your head...
Don't get me wrong... Our brain is an amazing, virtuosic accomplishment of evolution. And it can do so much and help us in so many ways. But it also causes us to 'get in our own way' a lot. We way over-think stuff! And all that 'over-complicating' quickly gives rise to worry, doubt, confusion, anxiety, judgement, blame, guilt, etc...
At a certain point, many of us yearn for a simpler way. Practicing UZAZU's set of simple core movement patterns and 're-connection' exercises (re)teaches you how to listen to the energy, information and intelligence that's already present in each moment & situation. Choice-making and action-taking can then 'simply happen' in each moment as an embodied response, without needing to be 'effortfully micro-managed' by a rationalizing prefrontal cortex. In other words, Dynamic Embodiment Practice conditions you to more deeply relax and skillfully trust in the flow of each embodied moment.
UZAZU movements and practices give me a clear experience of being in the world with ALL of me.
To put it as simply as I can, UZAZU movements and practices give me a clear experience of being in the world with all of me. After completing the all the practices in the training, I was left with a strong sense of underlying completeness. Not that everything was easy, mind you, or “magically fixed” or anything—the experience was something more simple and profound. Deep inside, I felt like I had reached all over the place and had gently uncovered every stone, so to speak, seeing what was good, seeing what needed care, and knowing that I had a non-cognitive, embodied approach to work with.
Profound and life-changing
I would definitely recommend people to work with Dylan. I found Uzazu to be profound and life-changing. Dylan and UZAZU have helped me move out of my head and into my body. I couldn't have done what I’ve done without Dylan’s support and help.”
For me, it's really been about balance.
For me, personally, it's really been about balance, and giving a very tangible experience to polarity. There's Yin and there's Yang, but there's so many different facets to Yin and Yang... And when you can embody those energies—and not just understand them conceptually—you can use that knowledge in every experience in life. I could explain UZAZU as being an artform or a kind of exercise, but that doesn't even come close to explaining the depth of it. I usually just explain it to people by saying "Go learn it. Go do it. Go experience it!"
You get more savvy in the language of your intuition.
UZAZU has given me permission to trust my instinct and intuition even more. Sometimes we can have a vague sense of how our intuition is showing up—maybe it's a pit in your stomach or something fluttering in your chest—but when you work with UZAZU's energy dynamics, you get more savvy in the language of your intuition.
This system is so vital, fresh and organic. When you do it, you feel better emotionally, mentally and physically. UZAZU deserves to be studied by anyone with a serious interest in promoting mind-body integration.
My work is so much stronger and more beautiful now, seeing people go with the natural flow.
For me, UZAZU Change Facilitation puts things in perspective. Boom. It is like suddenly I just simply get it. Not only from a mind perspective but also from a heart perspective. And for me, my work is so much stronger and more beautiful now, seeing people go with the natural flow.
2. It allows you to become Empowered...
Honestly, I used to not really like the trend of focusing on 'empowerment' as a key goal or aim of self-development. It felt too YANG, too much: "I want to be able to do whatever I damn well please!". But over the last ten years of teaching (and practicing) UZAZU, I've come to embrace 'empowerment' as a really, well, powerful thing. Here's how I like to define 'healthy empowerment':
Healthy empowerment, is the capacity to ever more deeply and compassionately listen & respond to the moment. Being 'empowered to act' means being able to SHOW UP and allow life to flow through you in the ways IT is most wanting to happen. And exactly 'what that means' in each moment will look different as 'you' and your environment change & evolve... UZAZU practice apparently helps (de/re)condition your bodymind so you become more FULLY AVAILABLE to dance with however 'life' is wanting to unfold, moment to moment.
How simply I can choose step back into my power!
For me, personally, I became aware of areas where I was withholding parts of myself. By observing my body, moving through these movements with Dylan's guidance, I was able to see how simply I can choose to step back into my power!
I feel empowered and clear
Working with Dylan has helped me to feel empowered and clear, even in the midst of a lot of chaos—and that feeling has stayed! We tend to be very much lost in our "mind-stuff" these days and getting more into the body in this way is unlike any other approach I've seen out there. It's powerful stuff! Dylan is a master at what he does.
More drive and passion...
It's changing how I energetically interact with everything around me. I have more drive. I have more passion. I feel I can be more authentic, and sharing my truth is one of the most gratifying things I have now.
I have more appreciation for the underlying dynamics of life
I have become more focused, discerning, and purposeful. I am making more money and cultivating better relationships. I am able to process emotional waves much more deeply and swiftly and find I have a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the underlying dynamics of life. The language of UZAZU has given me a way to be with the details and processes of all aspects of my life.
Often, just talking is not enough...
Often, just talking about our life's concerns, as with many types of coaching or psychotherapy, is simply not enough to create true transformation. The Uzazu approach supports one in more fully feeling into the new possibilities and starting to enact them almost immediately.
