Embodied approaches

The terms embodied and embodiment are used in a number of areas.  As I understand it the terms reflect a move away from Cartesian dualism and concepts of the detached self, and a return to the recognition of the centrality of our physical body as core to our identity.  The main areas in which this affects my work are in cognition, leadership/coaching and psycho-dynamic approaches.
