You only have one life.
Let it be embodied.

Original practices to help you overcome the effects of our disembodied culture.

  • Embodiment Coaching

    Embodiment coaching sessions offer practical support, fresh perspective, and simple exercises tailored for your individual needs and growth. Coming home to the body is challenging, transformative work and benefits from a skilled, encouraging guide.

  • Online Learning

    Re-uniting with your body's way of knowing is a life-changing adventure. TEPP offers two online experiences to get you started, and both feature live zoom calls with Philip. One is a three-week course, and the other is a monthly membership. 

  • Workshops & Trainings

    Normally we have a busy schedule of in-person workshops and facilitator trainings booked around the world. Well, things are paused at the moment! But you can experience some of the practices of TEPP in live virtual workshops.

With over 40 years of experience, TEPP co-director Philip Shepherd is a leader in the global embodiment movement.


"Philip’s work is depthful, hopeful, and accessible. And it is utterly essential, in these weary times. It’s hard to imagine how we will save our species without it."

Jeff Brown

Author & Grounded Spiritualist, JeffBrown.co

"The world needs a shift in consciousness and the work of Philip Shepherd is a practical way of getting there."

"Philip's advice on embodiment is the best around and the practices he has evolved are matchlessly effective."

Andrew Harvey

Author & founder of Sacred Activism

The practices of TEPP are as numerous and varied as are the ways in which our culture dulls us to wholeness.

TEPP is the compass that orients your journey to wholeness


If you are looking for three easy steps to solve life’s problems, TEPP isn’t for you. But if you are looking to journey back to your body's intelligence, to reconnect with reality in a way that brings ease and fulfillment to your life – well, that’s exactly what TEPP is offering. Discover The Embodied Present Process for yourself.

Everyone learns in their own way, and TEPP offers a variety of approaches through which its practices and paradigm-shifting insights can be experienced.

TEPP doesn't conform to the assumptions of our culture – it challenges them.

Because you cannot find your way back to embodiment – back to an experience of your wholeness – if you are relying on the thinking and metaphors of a disembodied culture.

Radical Wholeness

There are qualities we all yearn to experience in our lives—peace, simplicity, grace, connection, clarity. Yet these qualities evade us because each of them arises from an experience of wholeness, and we live in a culture that enforces divisions within each of us.


New Self, New World

New Self, New World challenges the primary story of what it means to be human, the random and materialistic lifestyle that author Philip Shepherd calls our "shattered reality". This reality encourages us to live in our heads, self-absorbed in our own anxieties.

Get started with 8 Embodied Present Meditations

Go beyond mindful meditation with these 8 audio Embodied Present Meditations. Written and led by TEPP co-director Philip Shepherd, these recordings are essential to your exploration of wholeness.

Follow along with audio alone; no demonstrations necessary. These practices will help you explore a new way of being in your body and the world. Build them into your daily routine, and break down you unseen patterns of disconnection.

Like everyone else, we've been challenged to schedule workshops within the context of the pandemic. We've moved workshops a year in advance, only to realize that we likely won't be gathering in groups again until September 2021. We'll be updating the in-person workshops listed below shortly. In the meantime, we have online self-directed courses and a membership community and virtual workshops via Zoom. Please feel free to browse those and let us know if you have any questions!
