Hey, I’m Annika
Aka harbinger of profound experiences you deeply want, but are scared to have ;)
Those who know me best will tell you that I have an insatiable need to uncover the capital T ‘Truth’. You know, the wordless desire we all share to go home, or rather come home, into our true multidimensional natures.
Well, throughout the last couple of decades as a dancer, dance teacher, vision midwife, healer, and member of an underground 12 year long communal tantra apprenticeship/laboratory, I have learned that our brilliant bodies is where it's at when it comes to finding a vehicle that will take us home. A couple of fun facts..
Your spine is a compass for truth
Your emotions guide you to fulfill your needs and desires
Your nervous system is self-healing
You can activate brainwaves that pick up intuitive and psychic information
Your heart is a portal into unity consciousness
Your voice shapes reality
Your genitals and sexuality births more than babies, they births worlds
Your gut holds your power and your boundaries...
I could go on and on and on and on… which is why I’ve created this Substack and Podcast. I want to share with you all the cool shit our bodies can do, and how to harness their intelligences for profound transformation. I also have a website here annika-theroadhome.com where you can download a free video course, and peruse 1:1 coaching programs, online programs, and in person workshops/events.
Our bodies can be a vicious hell hole, or a verdant garden for our psyches …
depending on how you inhabit them. Our culture has such disrespect for the body, that most of us have unintentionally become walking/neurotic heads with broken physiologies that torture us. Most of us HATE being in our bodies. But not me. I was determined to figure out how to fly this rad spaceship and make it enjoyable goddamnit.
And guess what? The more I understood and fell in love with my animal body, the more I would experience profound shifts in consciousness and transformation in regards to the personal and collective trauma I inherited. My road has been fraught with divorce, abandonment, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, mental illness, financial scarcity, chronic illness and the loss of close loved ones. I'm most certain life has left you some scars too.
The more I dove into my body for answers, the more I would discover that each obstacle I faced was in fact also a portal into profound healing, integration, intimacy, trust, power, pleasure, laughter, creativity, abundance, and belonging.
They can be for you too, if you have the courage to form a partnership with your body like you never have before! It can be terrifying, especially in a culture that represses the body at every turn, which is why I want to create a big permission field for you to explore and reclaim your body and find home in it again.
My podcast is not an ordinary ‘interview’ style podcast. It is designed to be a fun and enlightening classroom!
Each episode is a 15-30 min long lesson filled with comedic storytelling, and practical tools you can immediately download and apply to your life. My Substack newsletter will mostly be a transcription of these podcast episodes.
Yes you will also hear crazy stories of transformation from myself and those I love and the lessons we learned along the way. But more importantly, I believe that education and empowerment is more important than just listening to stories. There is no ‘one-size-fits all’ protocol or set of tools when it comes to transformation, but there ARE fundamental principles of transformation. Testing out these principles and accumulating lived experiences will be paramount to your road to mastery in the art and science of transformation...which is why you will walk away from each episode with inspiring homework you can download and immediately apply to your life. It is, by far, the most affordable way to begin working with me!
Most importantly, you will learn how your body will point you to your unique portals back home. Nobody can walk your unique road home all the way with you, but that doesn't mean we must journey alone. In fact, in my experience, we need to hold hands and take turns following each other's guidance along the way. Which is why I also am fascinated with group consciousness and community rehabilitation. You'll learn more about that later.
So, if you're up for it! Come dive into my world and see if it's a road you want to travel down with me for a bit! I look forward to journeying with you <3
