The Awakened Body

Explore a revolutionary view on embodiment in this talk, The Awakened Body: Opening to the Spiritual Wisdom of the Body with Diamond Approach co-founder, Karen Johnson. Listen as she describes how the physical and spiritual are inseparable and how to embody our being in ways that allow our spiritual nature to function through this fleshy medium.

The reality of our body can be investigated and recognized for what it truly is – not just an object we experience consciousness through, but that our body IS consciousness itself.
