Sarah Menlove
THE EMBODIED ALCHEMIST

Sarah holds a powerful and grounded space for you to journey into your inner world, dissolving the layers of identity, conditioning and limitation to reconnect and remember who you truly are. Whole, sovereign and a powerful co-creator of your reality. Recall the parts of yourself that have been lost, forgotten or denied along the way, to own your power, know your worth and listen to the wisdom of your soul. For too long we have outsourced this wisdom, trusting someone else to know better, to give us the answers, or “save us”, be it a teacher, guru, external God, fairytale love etc, giving our power away, denying the wisdom of our own body. Now, one by one across the planet we are remembering the innate wisdom and intelligence of our body. Coming home to the knowing that it’s all already within, we have just forgotten.

“If you want to give birth to your true self, you are going to have to dig deep down into that body of yours and let your soul howl. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that if you turn off your head, your feet will take you where you need to go.” ~ Gabrielle Roth

You may be wondering who I am and how I came to do this work in the world and if it’s always been this way for me. The short answer is no. The last 5 years have taken me on a deep journey into parts of myself I didn’t know were there, teachers, mentors, coaches, and trainings coming at the right time for different stages of my journey, to allow for the next layers to unravel, some of these stories are weaved throughout the different offerings in this space. I trust you will find what most resonates for you.

In truth, it began long before this, but we’ll start here. It was a few months out from the 70.3 (half ironman) world championships, when I walked into a sports doctors office and received the news that I had a stress facture in my hip that would prevent me from competing. It certainly wasn’t a light bulb moment, after which everything changed but what I would now call the voice of my body had spoken and it was time I started listening to Her. I look back now, so grateful she gave me the message in the only way I would listen, by physically forcing me to stop, to stop the extreme exercise, the undereating and the obsession with weight and performance. 

How it began

What I didn’t know at the time was that this was just the beginning, to unravelling all that I knew myself to be, the conditioning I’d absorbed throughout my life and the identities that I’d allowed to define my sense of self-worth, all in places outside of myself.

 

Petal by petal, the unfurling began, as I started questioning and exploring who I was, without the external identities and masks that had unconsciously become so attached to my sense of worth and belonging.

This time of deconstructing my relationship with my body, was pivotal in my journey and one I did not do alone (shout out to my very first coach and mentor, Holly Toronto, I will be forever grateful for the work we did together!). I believe that healing my relationship with food, my body and exercise through intuitive eating and body image healing has gifted me the grounded foundation that has carried me through immense change since then and that also filters through the work that I do in the embodiment spaces that I now facilitate.

 

As I continued to deepen my relationship with myself, I was drawn towards modalities that unravelled more layers and opened me up to greater capacities within myself, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In language that I now use in ceremony, I can see that I was “shedding skins”, “the fires of transformation were burning away all that no longer served, so that I could be reborn (over and over again)”.

 

I am now so humbled and honoured to walk alongside others on their path, as they too, like the snake, shed their old skin to allow for their growth and transformation.

What I didn't know...

The path is never a linear journey

I’ve learned that the path of transformation is not a linear journey. 

There is no destination to reach and as long as we are living, we are evolving (or at least being invited to evolve). 

We usually won’t know the how, or exactly what the outcome will be but if we trust and put one foot in front of the other, as cheesy as it sounds, we will always end up exactly where we are meant to be. 

There is endless support available, more than we will likely ever know and I believe that one day we will look back at this wild ride and laugh at how seriously we took ourselves and how much we questioned things, that will at the end of the day become so clear. 

And ultimately, we are all already whole and worthy exactly as we are, a small drop of the great ocean, that it can be easy to forget we are a part of.

 

Let us gather now, as we remember together, the wisdom of our bodies, the rhythms and cycles of the earth and the innate intelligence within and all around us.

We were never meant to do it alone.
