Loving More

Lisa Stendig - Saturday, October 18, 2014
Perhaps my favorite thing about the new Tuesday Love Your Body class is bringing together people for the shared intention of loving more.  So prevalent in our work lives, and even in our extracurriculars --including many of our spiritual pursuits-- is the intention of trying to be better, to improve, to achieve, or even to be good enough.  But for this class we are gathering to love something that is in need of loving attention.
While other activities involving the body, like hiking, dancing, going to yoga class or working out, may be pleasurable and physically beneficial, we are using the body to give us an experience.  This experience may even be of unity or oneness, but the underlying orientation is that we're looking to get something.  With this class we are showing up in order to give something.
Even a well-used and well-tended to body, after being put through its paces, just needs love.  We are so available to give our animals love-- isn't it time we give our bodies love, too?  So we are gathering in my beautiful sacred space to give love to our bodies, especially if we feel bothered by them and maybe can't even imagine how.
Tuesdays @ 9am at the Embodiment Studio

New "Love Your Body" Class

Lisa Stendig - Saturday, September 06, 2014

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
