Embodiment: Embracing Our Earthiness
Thursday, September 26, 2019
7:00PM – 9:00PM
Our bodies are sources of wisdom, as the means through which we experience the world. This session explores and how embodiment is essential to our spiritual lives. Through experiential practice, personal reflection, and group dialogue, attendees will learn how awareness is key to embodiment. Drawing from Scripture, the practice of yoga, and understandings of the senses, this workshop will show how Christians can embrace their embodiment through including the body in prayer.
This workshop includes a short yoga practice that can be done from a chair or the floor, open to people of all ages and abilities. Feel free to bring a yoga mat, if you like. Please wear comfortable clothes that allow for easy movement.
