🌟The Conscious Body Conversation Series🌟
As humans, our relationship with our bodies has taken many twists and turns. In early human history we understood ourselves as spiritual beings. As time marched on and we learned more about how these bodies operate, our understanding of ourselves became more mechanical. This mechanistic view of the body has shed necessary light on the body systems, which has allowed us to innovate solutions to so many problems. And it has also created the space for disconnection, dissociation, and disembodiment.
In this video series, I chat with some of my favorite humans who have insight on how we can explore pathways to greater connection within our own sense of selves, with each other, and as co-inhabitants of this planet today.
Inhabiting our own bodies consciously is a necessary experience in progressing the field of whole health. I hope you enjoy these talks.
