On The PurposeGirl Podcast I teach a range of tools for working with your mindset — things I’ve learned in my coaching practice, through positive psychology, and through my own personal work. In the last year or so I’ve discovered that our emotions get stuck in our body, and through a women’s program that I’ve been a part of I learned how to move my emotions through my body, and it’s really helped me manage some of my tougher emotions and bring me greater peace and happiness. It’s important to feel our full range of emotions, to own them all, and it’s also critical that we understand how to manage them in healthy ways, and my special guest today is the perfect person to help us with this.
Bernadette Pleasant is an intoxicating, energetic, fiery sensual Speaker and Somatic Healer, and the Creator of Femme!, a mind-body wellness program. She has spent a lifetime exploring creative visualizations and celebrations of the human form, from sensual dance to somatic healing. A gifted healer, dancer, and entrepreneur, she channels her personal journeys and her radical empathy into transformative, immersive experiences that empower and celebrate people of all genders, ages, sizes, and fitness levels. Bernadette travels globally empowering all through classes, private workshops, retreats and conference engagements.
Bernadette and I discuss the importance of moving our emotions through our bodies in healthy ways instead of letting them get stuck there, feeling all our feelings in their full intensity and not stifling them, and then moving past the more challenging emotions.
