11. What Is A Body?
Play • 20 min

What is a body?

For me, this question brings up so much about the science of it all.

But right now, it also brings up thoughts about what it means to have a body, and specifically what it means to have a body with Black skin.

If that question leads you there, too, you’re not alone.

In this episode, Let’s go back to the basics and talk about what a body is, what it means to have a body, and what it means to be in a body.

In this episode:

  • The interconnected and interdependent nature of your body’s systems
  • Envisioning the body as a container
  • How our bodies carry the experiences of our lineages and environments
  • Howl emphasis on the brain separates us from our bodies, our feelings, and each other
  • An exercise for feeling into your body
