Leading Ourselves Through the Body: A Conversation with Courtney Amo, Dr. Julie Beaulac, and Casey Bergland
Show Notes

Listening to the wisdom of our body is an essential component of self-care, yet how often do we truly embrace this?  Do we even know what that would look like?

In this episode we speak with Courtney Amo, Dr. Julie Beaulac, and Casey Bergland, the authors of the book entitled The Mind Body Way: The Embodied Leader’s Path to Resilience, Connection, and Purpose. Our guests use the term “leader” in a broad sense to include both the traditionally recognized leadership roles but also those that we might not ordinarily think of.  So, whether you’re in a supervisory role where you’re leading a team or simply just leading yourself, this episode is for you.  Our guests discuss exactly what is meant by the term “embodiment” and some of the reasons we struggle to listen to our bodies. We also explore the authors’ 6 pillar framework and it’s overlap with our 4 C’s framework, focusing specifically on the importance of courage and connection.  We end off by hearing about our guests’ favorite “non-conventional” self-care practices.        

Episode highlights:

  • What exactly is “embodiment” and why is it so important
  • Why we ignore the wisdom of our bodies
  • How taking on risks and practicing courage contribute to embodied leadership
  • The role of connecting with ourselves and others in being an embodied leader
  • Julie, Courtney, and Casey’s favorite “non-conventional” self-care practices
