EP 130 // How Our Bodies Teach Us Our Worth // Heather Francis

“The more awareness we have, the more choices we have.”

This conversation is a continuation of one my friend Heather and I started the other night about one of my favorite topics — somatic intelligence, or body awareness.

Heather is the perfect person to talk to about this because she is a dancer, a dance teacher, and just as passionate about body awareness as I am.

In this episode, we discuss several pieces of what it means to hold our body as a home for our worth, the maturing process of learning to befriend and listen to our body, and how increasing our awareness of our body increases our choices. I loved all of this and you can expect more episodes on this topic — I think it’s endlessly interesting.
