Episode 139: Embodied Leadership
In this conversation, Sydnie shares how expression through dance necessitates deep presence and connection to our bodies and highlights the ways in which its practice supports self-actualization and living in the fullness of our humanity. Jerry Colonna and Sydnie contemplate the real consequences and untold harm disembodiment has had on our organizations and in our communities, and why coming home to ourselves allows for connection, empathy, and compassion to ripple out through the circles we inhabit.
