Values Dissect with Drea Marz, Mover and Feeler

I met Andrea Marz in Austin a couple weeks ago. For those who don't know her, you can say she's an interesting, deeply felt, slightly eccentric human being. I instantly connected with her energy. I did a Values Dissect with her over Chai Tea and she spoke about the importance of embodiment, expression, surrender, connection, and love as integral guiding and anchoring values in her life.

“And really what that means to me is feeling connected, to my physical body and where I’m at mentally. Being able to have thoughts that have them just as they are. Not attaching too much meaning to them, as well as being connected to my emotions. What am I feeling? And then feeling a connection to the world around me. So having all of the debris that keeps me separate dissolves. And that I’m able to have Right Response or just being able to respond with a conscious choice in every moment"

MINDFULNESS

Life is a blur. Let’s face it, we live in an ever increasingly hedonistic age, an era dominated by selfies, image-crafting via social media, Buzzfeeds top 15 lists for how to live your life, hurried moments at a music festival captured in a saturated filter, fast food culture mixed with road rage.  Information overload flooding us with infinite options/alternatives/substitutions for everything from frozen yogurt toppings to online dating matches.
