Embodiment means different things to me depending on what aspect is being discussed. What strikes me about embodiment is breaking the structured hierarchy and stigmas, especially  against women in social, environmental, economic, and political phenomena worldwide.”

” To me, embodiment means many things. It is the way that we come to know, and be in, the world around us through sensory experiences, place-based emotional geographies, and interaction with social, ecological, and personal relations. More than that, embodiment is the process through which the social, political, economic, and ecological phenomena are written onto our flesh and bone, and how we as individuals reproduce and challenge those very phenomena. “
