Peter Lovatt was invited to speak at The Embodiment Conference on the 17th October 2020. Peter was interviewed by Mark Walsh on the role of movement in every aspect of our human experience - from social bonding to thinking and problem solving. Peter also discussed his new book, The Dance Cure, and the Movement in Practice Academy, which he co-founded with Lindsey Lovatt in April 2020.
A message from the organisers
We’re here to make the world’s embodied wisdom accessible to everyone. That’s what TEC is all about: changing the world, one body at a time.
This year’s TEC will be even better than the last: we’ve got more epic presenters, an ever-growing conference community, and our new portal makes finding your favourite sessions easier than ever.
There’s a lot to digest over the 10 days. We know it’s impossible to see every session live. That’s why the updated online portal helps you learn at your own pace and find what you’ll love with just a few clicks.
We love hearing stories of friendships and business partnerships born at TEC. That’s why we’ve made it even easier for you to meet and befriend other embodiment-lovers, locally and around the world.
If you’re looking to reconnect with your body, learn from the best teachers in the world, and join a warm community built around our shared passion, TEC2020 is the place for you. We’ll move, and shake, and laugh, and learn. Hell, maybe we’ll even end a rough year with smiles on our faces!
