Embodied Life Society (ELS) is being constantly created as a way to support, enhance and allow sovereign participation in all areas of life that address living a thriving life. We appreciate all aspects of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual narratives, and endeavor to address simple truths that help us live our best lives in accordance with proper evolution.
Tashi is a scientist with a Master’s Degree in inorganic chemistry, and eats white papers for breakfast. He grew up as a second generation Buddhist at the Shambala Mountain Center in Colorado, then realized his true path and love for science with a passion for getting back to the simple truth of life.
Gaia is a nurturing bodyworker who continually dives deep into the shadow aspects of life to address wounds such as developmental and shock trauma that we may store in our bodies, contributing to the memory that cells store that may keep us in suffering from lineage wounds or a traumatic event. She owns and operates Embodiment Massage in Truckee, and through her international travels and ongoing education, has developed a unique Body Wisdom Therapy that teaches you how to accept, feel safe and empowered in your own body, bring peace, liberation and a distinctive joy that comes from embracing all aspects of yourself.
As life partners, Tashi and Gaia practice courageous communication which keeps their relationship strong and growing. This allows for personal freedoms, an opportunity for authentic relating in love, rather than relating from a co-dependent attachment - or filling each other’s holes in a desparate attempt to “get someone to love them”.
Together, Tashi and Gaia are slowly and organically creating ELS with a larger vision to create community that addresses our incompetence (current and lifelong), challenges the common societal matrix belief systems, and move more into understanding the nature of nature and how being so far removed from our evolutionary biology can keep is in an ever spiraling, confusing - or bewildered - frame of being.
Tashi and Gaia are both natural introverts with moments of extroversion, so please be patient with them as they challenge their boundaries (and avoidant tendencies) and move into feelings of expressing safely with the public and actively participating in online conversations, and they will do the same for you.
Humility and vulnerability takes courage and your humility is honored here. Your anecdotes, life experiences and offerings are welcome and they will do their absolute best to witness you in all of it.
Please respect the following community guidelines to maintain an enjoyable environment:
- Keep conversation respectful, without personal attacks
- Don’t blow up other members’ feeds. If someone isn’t responding to you, let it be
- No pornography
- Keep out behavior that could be seen as trolling/spamming
- Relax, be yourself, and enjoy
We will share as we learn and grow, and invite community members full participation to share so we can all learn and grow. There is no need for sugar coating as direct and honest participation saves time, and it allows one to honestly evaluate their inner selves and where they are coming from.
WOKE ideology, and current social issues if presented, may be challenged in a respectful way, as humanitarian issues are a way of understanding who we are as a person and as a species.
However, we are more interested in addressing the fundamental core of who we are as a biological human being, and how we can all live our best lives through personal interaction, diet, exercise, and with the humility to understand that which we currently do not.
