What is Love and how do we recognise it with Michaela Boehm
Soul Surgery with Nicky Clinch
Welcome back to our intimacy series with Michaela Boehm, the founder of The Non-Linear Movement Method® and expert embodiment & intimacy coach and therapist. This is a really juicy episode where we talk about love. We come into adulthood with mixed messages and expectations for love that we have to unlearn to really open to love. We look at the misconceptions around romantic love, the meaning of love and how it differs for everyone; embodiment and its impact on our ability to allow love in. Love can be described as the ability to be open, feel and connect to your heart and another's heart. This openness is not an easy thing to practice, because our experiences happen during the course of our individuation and we decide that it is too painful. Most of us will close our hearts to avoid pain and reduce our ability to welcome love in. When we allow love in, we become vulnerable to pain, loss and grief. If we can fully feel all our feelings, then with the exalted positive feeling of love comes the reciprocal shadow side where the feelings might not be so pleasant to experience. Because of this tendency that many people close themselves to the possibility of pain and grief, when we actually get the love that we want, we can't accept it because we are not a big enough vessel for the abundance of love that we receive. Episode highlights: Deconstructing how we fall in love and diving into this wild cocktail of survival mechanism and a primal need for reproduction. How women unconsciously go through a chemically induced selection process and look for someone at the most basic level, who can keep her children alive and safe (supportive, helpful, status, power, health, wealth are all markers for the survival of the off spring). We dive deep into attachment styles and previous experiences and how for some people love is equal to chaos, abuse, victimhood – a person tends to consciously or unconsciously look for our childhood patterns to be played out in adult love relationship. The differentiation between the love feeling where you genuinely like the person that you are with and sexual tension/ attraction – which is not love but chemistry. The different level of intimacy that’s possible when the infatuation has worn off and when the chemicals have stabilised – this is where the intimate relationship starts if we are willing to engage in it. We talk in detail about the importance of the daily practice of embodiment so that the body and nervous system can integrate to become a bigger vessel for love.

Sensuality: Creating Inner Safety with Michaela Boehm
Soul Surgery with Nicky Clinch
I am so excited to share this conversation with you where I sit with Michaela Boehm for two consecutive episodes in which we are releasing an intimacy series this month. In this episode, we dive deeply into allowing in sensuality by creating internal safety within ourselves. Michaela is an expert in her field as an embodiment and intimacy coach and therapist. She is the founder of the Non-Linear Movement Method® and has been featured on some well-known platforms such as Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett and on Netflix series ‘Unwell’. We talk about the difference between sensuality and sexuality and how according to Michaela, sensuality means complete engagement with life through all our senses. This intimate relationship that we have with life internally then allows us to be more alive in our external world. Michaela explains how through the activation of the multiple layers of positive engagement through all our senses in our daily life experiences, our body fully opens and how that sensual openness is the prerequisite and amplifier for sexual pleasure. We speak about how sensuality and embodiment are intricately connected because in embodiment we are listening to the messages of our five senses that our internal landscape sends us. And so, when we engage with our senses, life is so much more pleasurable. We go into how the practice of embodiment exercises and how connecting, working with and caring for the body in natural ways enables the body to release stress and the nervous system gets regulated with the release of old emotions and stories that got stuck in the memory of the body. Episode Highlights: · How creating a landscape of internal safety allows us to be more alive and engaged with life. · The importance of creating internal safety to develop trust within ourselves. · The ability to trust in our internal self opens up so much more possibility to make the choices to create an externally safe environment for ourselves if we have those choices. · We delve into how if we want to feel safe in receiving all the good that life has to offer, we also need to learn how to be with our own pain so that when the goodness comes we can allow it in because numbing out pain will also numb out pleasure. · We go profoundly into the positive benefits on the nervous system of having our environment set up in a way that our body is relaxed on an ongoing basis, which makes a huge difference relationally as well as sexually, sensually and in our personal development. Thank you so much for listening to this episode. I would love to hear of any aha moments you had after listening to this. I would truly appreciate if you would leave a review on my social media pages, website or iTunes so that we can share these messages of wholeness and healing with the world.

The intersection of embodiment, sexuality, and relationships with Michaela Boehm
Figuring It Out
I discovered today’s guest on one of my favorite sites...goop (obviously). When I read that Michaela Boehm was GP and Brad’s intimacy coach, I knew I needed the inside scoop. While no relationship is perfect, GP & Brad’s is definitely goals. My conversation with Michaela helped me realize that you don’t achieve couple #goals without hard work and dedication. Michaela is an expert in intimacy, relationships, and sexuatlity. She’s a speaker and counselor whose work centers around the intersection of intimacy and embodiment. She has an extensive in-person counseling background, clinical experience in trauma and addiction and an innovative somatic approach. Her work with celebrity couples has been featured in international print publications, TV programs and online talk shows. Most recently her approach has been featured on the Netflix Series [UN] WELL. During our conversation, we talk about… Michaela’s talks about traveling for work, her teaching partner, being known for having famous clients. And she explains the goal of her work at the intersection of embodiment, sexuality, and relationship. Getting to the root cause of behavior patterns influenced by previous injury Michaela walks us through how she would treat someone she is working with, and gives examples how she must peel back layers of someone’s relationship in order to find the root issue How behaviors in relationships are imprinted on us from our past relationships, and model relationships in your life. We often repeat the same behaviors we saw in relationships growing up. The body has to be the instrument of perception. It gives signals that if you can become in tune with will help you connect with yourself as well as other people Michaela recommends physical movement to help every aspect of your heath, and relationship. Being active and seeking out nature allows us to connect with our bodies, that then allows us to know, and communicate our wants and needs more appropriately. Michaela shares advice on how to approach resolving communication issues. As well as how to keep communication skills strong. That self-care is important for attaining a strong intimate relationship with yourself is not only important for you is also important in how you form relationships with others. Michaela talks about her displeasure with the spread of misinformation about subjects she has experienced countless hours in the field of.

Welcome to another episode of the Soul Surgery Podcast, I am so glad that you are here. This week I am thrilled to introduce the beautiful soul that is Michaela Boehm. She is, without a doubt, one of the most extraordinary, brilliant, and heart-led women I have ever met and it was such a pleasure to speak with her. Michaela Boehm is a world-renowned relationship intimacy and sexuality expert and is the creator of The Non Linear Movement Method®, a somatic release modality which utilises principles of trauma therapy, polyvagal theory and movement for nervous system regulation. Michaela was also educated in a female held Tantric Shakta tradition (Kashmir Shaivism). Mentored by her female teacher, she is now the lineage holder of this tradition and dedicated to passing these teachings on to the women she mentors. During the recent COVID crisis, Michaela has pivoted her mission to online teaching to support people through emotional, health and relational challenges. In this episode, we discuss how the pandemic has forced us to engage in examining our inner world. What we’ve previously used to fill our lives and our time has been removed, and many of us have had to face our whole selves and our relationships head-on for the first time. For the first time in a LONG time, we are all having to face our shadow and examine the parts of ourselves we don’t want to acknowledge, the parts that are raw and painful. The parts that we don’t want to show to anyone, not even ourselves. For many of us, lockdowns have put our closest relationships under a microscope. We’ve had to adapt to staying indoors, not travelling and being with our partners a lot more than usual and this isn’t easy. Michaela and I share how you can learn to find a new flow in your marriage or partnership by reclaiming your power and providing yourself with an unwavering base of self-love and self-trust. Being at home has shown many of us how dependent we are on validation from our partners, our jobs, our social lives and our hobbies. Now we are being called to shift the lens through which we view our lives and our purpose, and to understand that your self-worth must come from within. In this episode we discuss…. Why self-love and pleasure is quite literally an inside job. How your innate worthiness never diminishes and how you can learn to tap into it. The importance of slowing down and listening to what your body needs. How relationship dynamics are influenced by our upbringing, our previous relationships, and our trauma patterns. How compassion, collaboration, and cooperation is what we need to grow through this new dynamic and thrive in our relationships. How we can reassess our self-worth and our value and find peace. Thank you so much for listening to this episode. I hope we have helped you to realise that your pleasure and sense of self-worth comes from within. You hold the keys to your own satisfaction and happiness. I would love to hear from you if any of this episode moved you, so feel free to send me an email or reach out via DM’s on Instagram. I would be so grateful if you could leave a review on iTunes and we can share this message of healing and wholeness with as many people as possible.
