Key Quotes

05:39  Embodiment is going that one layer deeper & it’s getting more to the core or true essence of what it is & who you actually are. - Leashia Arrowsmith

14:20  Embodied meditation is me continuing to come back when I’m lost in thought or I’m finding myself floating out in the ethers mentally & then I come back into my body & get back in touch with what’s happening, hear my sensation & my emotions. - Cynthia Gutierrez

18:47  Embodiment is the idea of getting back into the body & being led by that intuition, that co-desire not the desire of the mind.- Leashia Arrowsmith

23:50  It’s not enough just to know that we should not shout our kids or that we don’t want to shout our kids or whatever it is, it’s not enough just to say that in the conscious mind. It needs to be other steps that happen to actually bring it all together. - Leashia Arrowsmith

25:36  Check in with yourself & your body like, how am I feeling right now? What are the sensations that happening & simply just being with it & acknowledging it. - Cynthia Gutierrez

26:00  Having that entire 30 seconds to a minute, really allows us to start the change the habit, build the skill to be with ourselves more & more incrementally & be able to check-in. - Cynthia Gutierrez

29:58  Start noticing your body & noticing how you’re feeling & start to create that space, that pause eventually you might notice before you actually explode.  - Leashia Arrowsmith

 31:58  If we don’t allow ourselves to have the capacity to feel the hurt or more unpleasant emotions then it also robs us of feeling the more beautiful blessed moments of our lives.  - Cynthia Gutierrez
