Brooke Thomas is, in no particular order, a ROLFer/bodyworker, mother, mover, maker, podcast host and curious human. A few years back, through her work and creative process, Brooke started the Liberated Body Podcast as a means to share information that served as a forum facilitating her own ongoing learning and others. This work evolved into Brooke’s latest project, Bliss and Grit, a podcast candidly exploring spirituality in the modern world, with her friend and co-host Vanessa Scotto.
In this episode of the Mindful Strength podcast, we traverse a variety of terrain as we learn about Brooke’s path through life in body, art, science, entrepreneurship, self-awareness and spirituality. Kathryn and Brooke chat ROLFing, debunking common myths about the practice with insights into its origins and evolutions; stress and the stories of our lives and our bodies; tissue and nervous system response patterns; Brooke’s passion for re-educating people on what they think is true; viewing and treating our bodies as dynamic living organisms rather than disconnected parts of the whole; finding ease; and, somatic meditation. Brooke’s language and insights around mediation, embodiment and spirituality are communicated in ways that we hadn’t heard before and we love her clear, non-dogmatic approach to these concepts and tools that ultimately support learning to live from the being.
