Deepen your specialist knowledge, gain personal insights and broaden your view of the wider embodiment field.


Get practical tools you can use right away, and practices you can take away to develop yourself over time.


Link up with like-minded people locally and globally for support and encouragement.

NOTE: There will be some clever systems to help you easily find what you most love, clarify and record your learning, and to stay in touch with the people you meet.


Shaping history together

Making embodied wisdom available to everyone, everywhere, free of charge.

An online conference and more than that…
a kickstart to a global movement.

Embodiment is about making friends with your body, and feeling at home in your skin. The conference will give you free access to the top teachers in the field, offer a community of support, and be a huge global party to be remembered.

Embodiment is an antidote to the violence, disconnection and overwhelm caused by numbing, and a return to our shared humanity. For this reason, ​our goal is to make the 20’s the embodiment decade​,​ and help humanity thrive. The Embodiment Conference is a university, a fiesta and a catalyst. In a cynical age this is a bold vision, yes, but if not now when?

TEC will again be a uniquely rich opportunity for diverse learning, and will not only help you to come home to the anchor of your body in a chaotic world: to energise and inspire you personally, but also to connect with others for whom the body matters too. TEC will use global online community, to create local communities and real-world action.

Participants have an opportunity not just to get a bunch of information, but to clarify and digest that into wisdom. Through this event you can:

  • Learn from the leaders and innovators in the field
  • Gain deep personal insights (we will provide a platform to help with this)
  • Deepen and reboot your own practice
  • Easily learn about many new areas
  • Build real relationships and gain a community of support that will continue long
    after the event (online and in-person).
  • Have a really good time doing all this 🙂


1000 presenters, 10 Rooms

The conference is back…bigger but easier

TEC2020 has 1000 presenters, ordered into 10 channels, and we have a clever system so you can easily find what you’ll most love.

Yes 1000! We expect 500,000+ people to attend with 120,000 registered it is already a record breaker. Given the huge amount on offer and that most of us are busy people, some have asked us already how we suggest accessing the feast! Here are some options:

  • Just watch the “main stage” channel where 3 of the best known presenters will be daily.
  • Book some time off and treat it like a face-to-face conference! We’ll be releasing the schedule weeks in advance so you can plan if you like to be organised.
  • Let us pick two talks a day for you, just tell us your main area of interest and time zone and we’ll send you a “best of” recommendations
  • Dip in and out randomly simply by clicking the various channels (like having the best TV ever for 12 days)
  • See what’s “hot” on the Facebook group
  • Buy the recordings and never need Netflix again!

The conference is totally FREE (only recordings cost money to cover our expenses).

What people said about the last conference

If you are a life coach, facilitator, or yoga instructor, The Embodiment Conference is indispensable.

Joran Oppelt
Interfaith minister/facilitator, USA

I was amazed by the energy and diversity the conference drew together.

Shirley Smith

You managed to create an open yet safe space for learning, exchange and sharing. It was generous, genuine, real and well-organised. THANK YOU!

Tanya Steklova

A great way to connect with other people working in the field across the globe.

I have attended many on line conferences but this was different; I found the live sessions particularly engaging and connecting.

A great way to meet brilliance and have fun with people who care about being humans - including our animal nature, our bodies.

Martha Eddy
Somatic movement therapist, USA


Embodiment 2020

Why register now?

We learnt at the 2018 conference, that you definitely can teach embodiment online and build community that way too (despite what the cynics said before). We had great engagement from an audience from 90 countries, and had a really good time! Delegates made and continue to make TEC what it is, as the event is co-created – there have been votes on this website, format and presenters for example. We’d love you to have a say, so register and join the conversation. This also helps us out too, as the more early registrations we have the better it looks to potential sponsors.

Lastly, we’re also giving away some free gifts for early registration…as who doesn’t like presents 🙂

Here’s what you will get now when you register your FREE place


Embodiment Moving beyond mindfulness


Anatomy masterclass Tom Myers

Community & Volunteers

In 2018 we found that the conference is impossible without many helping hands! We established an active community via the Facebook group (please join if you haven’t yet) as well as through the Embodiment Circles which emerged out of the conference last year.

One of our big wishes for the conference in 2020 is that this community continues to grow and flourish. In order to do that, we will need many people to spread the word about the event, and volunteers before and during the conference. We appreciate any little thing you can do to help us make this event happen together. We are looking for proofreaders, Zoom hosts, community builders in different networks, people that speak different languages and more.

If you would like to get involved please contact us via the button below.

And please share:


If you are looking to apply as a presenter, all the information you need to know is here.

Join us for the largest educational event in the world and let us change the course of history, together.

Sponsors & Investors

Are you interested in becoming a sponsor or willing to lend us money?

Our conference is funded by low interest loans from the community and wouldn’t be possible without this. Last year we paid everyone back immediately from selling recordings and fully expect the same business model to work again. Actually, we know what we’re doing this year and the recording package is bigger and better, so it’s a much safer bet now 🙂

We also have some great sponsorship opportunities available – the event will be huge
after all – with various packages and channels (e.g. leadership or yoga) that can be supported so that you can promote what you offer. If you’d like to promote your product or service to 150,000+ people then it could be a good fit.

If you’d like to support us or invest into the conference as a business, do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
