Season 8 Episode 3: Using Somatics to Reclaim Our Agency. With Maria-Victoria Albina.


Today we are joined by the outstanding María-Victoria Albina; Master Certified Somatic Life Coach, UCSF-trained Family Nurse Practitioner and Breathwork Meditation Guide.

In this lively conversation, we dive into the nature of the oppressive systems we live in, how they require us to disconnect us from our bodies and why it is such a radical act to reconnect to a feeling of safety within ourselves.

In this show we're talking about:

  • Our current systems demand/require us to be disconnected from our bodies 
  • Somatic practice as an inherently radical act
  • Increasing awareness of choices and agency
  • Embodied safety & nervous system flexibility 
  • Marginalized bodies and nervous system regulation 
  • THIS simple somatic practice (secret weapon for regulating)

Here are the beautiful resources we mention:
