About Us

Scott Coady

IEW Founder

In my work with organizations and individuals over the past 30 years, I have seen the profound benefits generated by those brave individuals and leaders willing to inquire deeply into their authentic self and way of being. Those who choose to put themselves on the path of learning, and work to re-shape themselves, find a constantly expanding horizon of opportunity and lead more satisfying lives. I created the Institute for Embodied Wisdom to support those brave explorers of the self regardless if they are already on the path or are ready to take their first steps.”

Our Programs

All of our programs are designed to produce new levels of embodied competence, strength, confidence and capability to face life, the unknown and the emergent.  Our graduates report a transformation in their outlook noting a reduction in anxiety and an increase in desire to embrace and shape the future rather than being a victim of it. 

Our programs require full participation and are a blend of experiential, traditional and somatic learning.  Since we are training to face life and the future, we are training to be with and deal with people.  To assess who to and not to trust.  How to enroll and build alliances with others. To accomplish this, the foundation of all our programs are methods, practices, exercises and distinctions that aim to produce deep and lasting changes in mindset and behavior. 

Our Services

In addition to our group learning programs, we provide services to support executive and personal development.  Tailored to individuals, these services could include coaching conversations over time or deep dive immersion sessions designed to provide deep and lasting transformations. 

Content is highly customized to each individuals’ needs and accommodating when it comes to scheduling.  All of our practitioners meet our rigorous standards and as graduates of our core programs, are deeply embodied in the methods we use in those programs.
