It is safe for me to be here

The earth supports me and meets my needs

I love my body and trust its wisdom

I am immersed in abundance

I’m here and I’m real.

(“Eastern Body Western Mind, Anodea Judith)

“To loose our connection with the body is to become spiritually homeless. Without an anchor we float aimlessly, battered by the winds and waves of life” Anodea Judith

“Without awareness of bodily feeling and attitude, a person becomes split into a disembodied spirit and a disenchanted body”  Alexander Lowen



“Here in this body are the sacred rivers, here are the sun and moon, as well as all the pilgrimage places.  I have not encountered another temple as blissful as my own body.” Saraha Doha
