I'm starting a new class at the end of September, an embodiment class called "Love Your Body", on learning how to love the experience of having a body rather than feeling irritated by it. I don't know many people who truly love their bodies. It's not easy having a body. I don't think I need to catalogue all the things that can go wrong with a body. The thing is, though, we don't pay much mind to all that goes right with a body - how much it makes the best experiences of our lives possible.
And I'm not just talking about the obvious amazing-feeling things, like great sex, crazy good food, or puppies licking your face. Included in 'the best experiences of our lives' is being so closely intimate with pain that you've never felt more open-hearted and alive. The best part of life is so effortless and obvious that, without perspective, it can be easy to overlook. So this class won't be about getting, achieving, or becoming anything; just the opposite: it will be about being so deeply intimate with what's already here that, if you're lucky, your heart might break open.
Tuesdays at 9am in my beautiful sacred space, the container will be here for you to show up, meet your body --all of your body-- and fall in love.
Beginning Sept. 30th. oxox
