Flavia Jimenez – What if the Interruption IS the Practice?

By Julie Cusmariu – September 26, 2023

What if the Interruption Is The Practice?

Reflections on slowing down, tuning into our soma, creating space and building capacity, a podcast conversation between Julie Cusmariu and Flavia Jimenez about the Embodied Social Justice certificate program, take aways, insights gained and what remains to digest and unpack and integrate into life, personally and professionally. We each sought out collaboration on the project and found a connection point through our work as coaches interested in embodiment and somatic awareness for ourselves and the individuals we work with daily.

Some show notes:
00:28:30- Flavia shares insights on ’slowing down’, creating space and building capacity as well as her work experience as a lawyer and advocate.
00:38: 00 – Building capacity and the art of holding space.
00:30:59- How do we gift ourselves space?
00:54:00- Stumbling upon the title of the podcast. What if your practice is the interruption?
00:55:00- In real time, Flavia walks Julie through a gentle somatic inquiry and practice.
01:00:00 -What it means to have your head below your heart.
001:04:00- What is the soma?
