Our body is the most direct and perfect path to profound spiritual transformation. Through somatic meditation, we connect with the inherent wakefulness already present within our body.
Uncover the wisdom of your body and deepen your meditation practice.
Awakening the Body provides practitioners with a guided, step-by-step approach to uncovering the wisdom of the body and integrating it into everyday life. You will learn 10 unique somatic meditation practices to connect with the interior experience of your body, release unconscious holding and tension, and connect with the joy and freedom at the core of your being.
Awakening the Body is designed for “householders” — for those of us who have chosen to engage in a spiritual path inside of careers, families, and the great stressors (and great opportunities) provided by living in the world. This program teaches techniques that are meant to be integrated into your daily life, and also help you establish a committed practice at home.
