Understand Your Body Through Somatic Intelligence with Chen Lizra
“MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE THINKING TOO MUCH AND FEELING ENOUGH.”
There is a certain art that I feel had been lost over the years in this country, and you may have noticed it too. It’s the art of seduction.
Let me make one thing clear, when I say seduction I don’t mean unwanted flirting. I don’t mean trying to manipulate someone. True seduction is a lore more than that.
Seduction is about selflessly making other people feel good about themselves. Their bodies, their personalities, and everything about them.
It’s also about being aware of your own body. Owning it, being proud of it, and listening to it.
In America we spend so much time on our phones, we’ve lost that seduction between each other. This is a topic that my guest today, Chen Lizra, is an expert on.
Chen Lizra had a wildly successful Ted Talk on the power of seduction. She’s also an award winning entrepreneur, best-selling author, and a professional dancer.
She learned all about the power of seduction while living in Cuba, where she was deeply inspired by the culture of body confidence there. She was able to see how people were able to really connect with each other, lift each other up, and make a true connection with their bodies.
As a result, she has developed a powerful method of teaching body-awareness called somatic intelligence.
I was fascinated during this conversation as she explained (and demonstrated) these principles and how they impact our relationships, our opportunities, and our self-confidence.
