In this essay, I explore the concept of embodied knowledge that stems from the Brown female body grounded in the critical scholarship by Chicana Feminist Theorists. I share three testimonios of momentos—moments in my life—where my embodied knowledge, through emotions, feelings, and senses guided my practices. Through this (re)membering, I illustrate how critical embodied knowledge is lived and passed down to our younger generations. Lastly, I discuss the notion of embodied knowledge in relation to my research praxis and pedagogy as possibilities for (re)imagining work that heals and humanizes the experiences of our children and communities.
