Respect Your Body Like Your Mind

On today's episode, I take a question from a long time listener and student. She asks, Is it possible to have as much respect and concern for my body as I do for my mind?

This is a great question. Does it resonate with you? Are you intellectually gifted or cognitively centered? It's hard not to have an emphasis on the mind over the body in our culture. Is your body a second class citizen in your thinking? Here's the thing, your body is the basis for your mind. A truly strong and sensitive body is a strong and sensitive mind too.

In order to get more connected to our embodied experience, we need to get in touch to shift our habits and build new practices.

In this episode I offer a possible reframe for the body/mind, we talk about what it means and looks like to be more respectful of your body, and we explore a short, easy somatic exploration to embody respect for ourselves.

Hi, I’m Jeffrey. As a Feldenkrais and somatic movement practitioner I help you get in touch with your body so you can unravel old sticky patterns and make way for greater creativity, power and joyful play.
