Embodying Organizational Transformation

Embodying Organizational Transformation

The business world is increasingly complex, with the pace of disruptive change creating an uncertain future. To respond effectively to this shifting context, transformational change is required: this can only happen when those who seek to lead this change are leaders who are awake to self, relationships and the wider systemic organization. Embodying Authenticity explores the theory and practice of an integrated somatic methodology and demonstrates how this approach supports collective and individual transformation, which are interdependent, inseparable and indispensable for creating meaningful organizational change. The focus is on starting small, creating a shift in one part of the organization and enabling this change to self-generate and be amplified more widely throughout the whole system. This approach embodies a move from transactional to transformational leadership. The book includes the voices and experience of leaders and practitioners, adding color and richness through real practical examples and case studies.

Embodying Authenticity

Transformative change begins with those who seek to lead it and who are awake to who they are, their relationships and the wider organisation. As we lead and partner organisations, the powerful instrument we have is the person we are. Simply put who we are is how we lead. Connecting the individual journey with the collective journey is what allows organisations transformation to unfold and sustainable to change to become possible. Embodying Authenticity explores the theory and practice of an integrated somatic methodology and how this unique approach supports individual and collective transformation which are interdependent and inseparable. In somatics the person we are and the body we have are inextricably linked, when we connect with the vast intelligence of the body powerful change is available. This book is for people who are leading and participating in transformative change in their work and in their lives; be that in the capacity of a leader, executive, business partner, consultant of coach. It is an enquiry into human leadership, into who we are being, rather than what we are doing. It explores how through the cultivation of the self, we continually move towards our authentic way of being, creating meaning and purpose in our lives and the lives of those we work with.

Stepping Into Your Power

Stepping Into Your Power

An embodied approach to developing women leaders which invites us to re-write our interpretation of power, from the prevailing ‘power over’ to ‘power with’ developing a felt sense that the whole is greater than any one individual. This is the pathway to creating organisations that work for everyone. The book integrates different perspectives and theoretical frames with the author’s own experience of working with women leaders in organisations combined with action research. It sets out how women are able to dismantle the internal barriers that maintain the status quo and become a powerful force for change. The book gives voice to some incredible women who bravely step out of the shadows to let themselves be seen. They each share honest and often moving accounts of how they have reclaimed themselves as women and now embody a strong leadership presence. These stories weave together to inspire, provoke and empower. Individual and collective transformation are interdependent and inseparable. When women come together and support one another it is possible to transcend the norms and social forces and shift the prevailing culture. We can create more inclusive cultures where everyone, women and men, can participate and contribute to the benefit of all. It’s time to rewrite our interpretation of power, it's time to make a difference.

Embodying Mexico

Embodying Mexico examines two performative icons of Mexicanness--the Dance of the Old Men and Night of the Dead of Lake Pátzcuaro--in numerous manifestations, including film, theater, tourist guides, advertisements, and souvenirs. Covering a ninety-year period from the postrevolutionary era to the present day, Hellier-Tinoco's analysis is thoroughly grounded in Mexican politics and history, and simultaneously incorporates choreographic, musicological, and dramaturgical analysis. Exploring multiple contexts in Mexico, the USA, and Europe, Embodying Mexico expands and enriches our understanding of complex processes of creating national icons, performance repertoires, and tourist attractions, drawing on wide-ranging ethnographic, archival, and participatory experience. An extensive companion website illustrates the author's arguments through audio and video.

Embodying Religion  Gender and Sexuality

Taking the notion of embodiment as a starting point, this volume maps the interconnecting relationships between religion, gender and sexuality. The chapters highlight how the body – its location, the narratives that surround it, its movement and negotiations – is central to understanding these multifaceted relationships. The contributors recognise the ways in which gender and sexuality are crucial to how we embody religion and encourage a more complex and nuanced understanding of embodied religion. The material is organised according to three central themes: (1) the relationship between the religious and the secular; (2) power, regulation and resistance; and (3) the symbolism of gendered bodies. Cutting across a range of disciplinary perspectives, Embodying Religion, Gender and Sexuality will be relevant to students of sociology, anthropology, gender and sexuality studies, theology and religious studies.

Embodying Gender

Embodying Gender provides students and academics with a critical overview of body concepts in both sociology and in feminism. Previously, sociologists have attempted to gender the body and feminists have attempted to embody gender but Alexandra Howson's accessible new text draws these two literatures together, pointing to ways of integrating feminist perspectives on the body into sociological theory. Surveying all the key concepts in the field, this book introduces us to an extensive range of 'narratives of embodiment' and presents a full analysis of the most important texts in new feminist theories of the body. Key questions covered include: o What can sociology say about the body? o What impact has the body made on sociology? o What conceptual frameworks are used to address the body? How do these relate to issues of gender and embodied experience? o How do feminist conceptual tools sit within sociological analysis? Written in a clear, accessible style, Embodying Gender is an invaluable text for undergraduate students, postgraduates and academics in the fields of women's and gender studies and sociology, and is particularly relevant to those specialising in sociology of the body, feminist theory and social theory.

Embodying Hebrew Culture

From their conquest of Palestine in 1917 during World War I, until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the British controlled the territory by mandate, representing a distinct cultural period in Middle Eastern history. In Embodying Hebrew Culture: Aesthetics, Athletics, and Dance in the Jewish Community of Mandate Palestine, author Nina S. Spiegel argues that the Jewish community of this era created enduring social, political, religious, and cultural forms through public events, such as festivals, performances, and celebrations. She finds that the physical character of this national public culture represents one of the key innovations of Zionism-embedding the importance of the corporeal into national Jewish life-and remains a significant feature of contemporary Israeli culture. Spiegel analyzes four significant events in this period that have either been unexplored or underexplored: the beauty competitions for Queen Esther in conjunction with the Purim carnivals in Tel Aviv from 1926 to 1929, the first Maccabiah Games or "Jewish Olympics" in Tel Aviv in 1932, the National Dance Competition for theatrical dance in Tel Aviv in 1937, and the Dalia Folk Dance Festivals at Kibbutz Dalia in 1944 and 1947. Drawing on a vast assortment of archives throughout Israel, Spiegel uses an array of untapped primary sources, from written documents to visual and oral materials, including films, photographs, posters, and interviews. Methodologically, Spiegel offers an original approach, integrating the fields of Israel studies, modern Jewish history, cultural history, gender studies, performance studies, dance theory and history, and sports studies. In this detailed, multi-disciplinary volume, Spiegel demonstrates the ways that political and social issues can influence a new society and provides a dynamic framework for interpreting present-day Israeli culture. Students and teachers of Israel studies, performance studies, and Jewish cultural history will appreciate Embodying Hebrew Culture.

The Embodied Self

By integrating principles from her background as a movement psychotherapist and movement analyst with key concepts from contemporary psychoanalysis, the author offers a new perspective on exploring the interrelationships between nonverbal and verbal 'articulation' in any therapy setting. The Embodied Self provides a practical and experiential working model for developing therapists' embodied attentiveness, which will enhance their recognition of the sensori-affective manifestations of transference and countertransference. It will inform the work of psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, dance movement therapists, and body psychotherapists, as well as those involved in psychoanalytic observational studies. It will also be of great value to anyone interested in exploring the interrelationships between the psyche and the body.

Transformative Learning and Adult Higher Education

Presenting current trends in transformative learning and adult higher education, this volume paints a vivid picture of the Transformative Learning theory in action. The concepts that knit these articles together despite the variety of educational settings and populations are: relationships, community, and the body experience—often missing in higher education. This volume includes: the voices of marginalized populations often excluded from research studies such as community college students, emerging adults with learning differences, English language learners, native Alaskans, African-American health educators, doctoral students, and yoga practitioners; new paradigms for thinking about adult undergraduate education; new ways to deal with social conflict and advise doctoral students; and personal stories from Black women leaders, college teachers, student writers as well as pregnant women, and social service providers. This is the 147th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education series. It offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

Soul Communication

Connect with Your Billion Dollar Inner-Guide and Uncover Your Most Authentic Self. Olivia Blakey. Let it be clear that every action ... We can use our past traumas to let go of fear and grow into wise souls embodying authenticity.

Soul Communication

Designed to help sensitive souls intentionally align with the callings of their higher self, Soul Communication is a guide to becoming the creator of one’s unique path of abundance. Shaped by a story of the cyclic nature of death and rebirth through an astrological metaphor, the journey includes twelve powerful exercises of intentional soul work, used for transcending darkness to light and fear to love, in all areas of life. Western medicine call it ‘mental illness’. Shamanic traditions call it ‘spiritual emergence’. I call it ‘rebirth’. Rebirth does not have to be painful, but rather, enables you to release old patterns that no longer serve your highest good, so that you can receive the new. Rebirth does not have to create suffering, but rather, empowers you to heal and free yourself from limiting belief systems. Rebirth does not have to be resisted, but rather, awakens you to the beauty and liberation of limitless possibility. Rebirthing the soul is a natural process of evolution and is often mistaken as a problem, but Soul Communication transcends this stigma, reflecting the exact reason why humanity must surrender to rebirth. When you align with the language of your soul, you become the creator of your own life.

The authenticity of her narrative has been questioned partially because of the details she includes in her autobiography, which, according to critics, represent exaggerations and fabrications of life under the Khmer Rouge.

Embodying Asian American Sexualities

This book is conceived as a reader for use in American studies, Asian American studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender studies, performance studies, and queer studies. It also contains new scholarship on Asian/American sexualities that would be useful for faculty and students. In particular, this volume highlights materials that receive little academic attention such as works on Southeast Asian migrants, mixed race cultural production, and Asian/American pornography. As an interdisciplinary anthology, this collection weaves together various forms of 'knowledge'_autobiographical accounts, humanistic research, community-based work, and artistic expression. Responsive to the imbrication of knowledge and power, the authors aspire to present a diverse sample of discourses that construct Asian/American bodies. They maintain that the body serves as the primary interface between the individual and the social, yet, as Elizabeth Grosz noted over a decade ago, feminist theory, and gender and sexuality studies more generally, 'has tended, with some notable exceptions, to remain uninterested in or unconvinced about the relevance of refocusing on bodies in accounts of subjectivity.' This volume attempts to address this concern.
