Ways of Minding the Body with the Mind-Body Way: How Embodiment Helps Leaders Align Themselves with Dr. Julie Beaulac & Casey Berglund
In this episode, I have the great pleasure to talk with Dr. Julie Beaulac and Casey Berglund, two of the authors of the inspiring and inspirational book "The Mind-Body Way: The Embodied Leader's Path to Resilience, Connection, and Purpose."
We embark upon the question of what makes a good leader and how a company can become more effective and successful if they use and take advantage of embodiment practices by providing a safe psychological space to express and share different viewpoints and opinions.
However, the tips and advice given here can help anyone align themselves more within their personal as well as professional lives. Taking this mind-body approach means tuning in to your body and inner experiences, which can be scary and daunting at first but it will enrich lives and lead to a sense of agency, empowerment, risk-taking, and even personal fulfillment.
It can start with simple micro-shits in thought and behavior by asking yourself whether you want to have chocolate or strawberry ice cream (for the more health-conscious out there, replace with broccoli versus asparagus or your favorite health food) and to find ways and opportunities to enhance and strengthen the intuition or "Spidey sense" that we often ignore or disregard in our lives and to align ourselves with our authentic self and being.
