ARE YOU IN YOUR BODY? DO YOU WONDER WHAT IT MEANS TO BE "EMBODIED" AND HOW IT IS LINKED TO YOUR MENTAL HEALTH? ARE YOU READY FOR AN EXPERIENTIAL EPISODE WHERE YOU CAN PRACTICE EMBODIMENT RIGHT NOW? THEN GRAB YOUR BODY AND JOIN US! Much of our day is spent processing our external world and ignoring the sometimes wild and sometimes subtle internal world. In this episode Dr. Diana Hill and Dr. Debbie Sorensen will continue to explore the concept of embodiment--awareness of your body from the inside. We will draw from the lessons of Dr. Bo Forbes and Katy Bowman to experience how entering our bodies can support mental wellbeing and psychological flexibility. Dr. Hill will guide Debbie Sorensen (and YOU!) in experiential exercises to explore embodied awareness.
