There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
– Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher
The LifeWork team is committed to exploring the wisdom of the body. We’re learning that being mindful and responding to the body can dramatically lower the negative effects of day-to-day living. Sounds simple enough, but not so easy to put into practice. Over the course of our lives, we’ve probably learned to move away from the guidance of our senses. Instead, we may be relying primarily on our thoughts and ideas to make our way through the world. As a result, we might be missing out on the important messages that the body makes available to us — and more importantly, we’re missing out on feeling good from the inside out.
In April, LeeAnn Mallorie, one of our faculty members and founder of Leading in Motion. offered a Just Once A Week: 30-Day Embodiment Challenge.
Our team took part in Just Once a Week, and we shared some of our successes, challenges, aha’s, and thoughts along the way. It was an enlightening experience that not only reinvigorated our relationships with our bodies but also with each other.
