Embodied leadership means you bring out the best in yourself and others, as you’re always fully aware of what your mind and body are saying to you and them.Embodied Leadership involves the way you speak, the language you use, the way you position your body, the harmony you feel by being fully present, and the calming and reassuring messages you convey to others. When you practice embodied leadership you’re able to value, motivate, and bring out the best in yourself and others.

How Embodiment Work Can Help You Know Why You Are The Way You Are

Change happens when you know why and how embodiment work can help you understand yourself, explaining why you do things you really don’t want to do.Commonly, we treat the body and mind as two separate entities.

An embodiment practice, being fully present with your body/mind/spirit connection, is key to living a joyful life and achieving your full potential.

Are you wiser than a robot? Of course, you are! But did you know that scientists are trying to teach Embodied Intelligence to robots?

Find Your Passion, If You Want a Sustainable Business and Happy Life

When you find your passion, your life is enriched and it gives you a clear direction and guideposts, as you build a business around your passion.“We should always have three friends in our lives — one who walks ahead, who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we’ve cleared the way.” ~ Michelle Obama
