We live our lives, and we wake up in this physical body. Through increased embodiment, we have the opportunity to experience more joy, heartfulness and wisdom. Everything happens right here in our bodies! With deepening understanding and respect, the vast amount of information and responsiveness that comes through our physical form can be accessed and integrated. The practice of meditation gives us the opportunity to connect deeply with our bodies and our present moment experience. As we deepen, the places of clinging, of separation from ourselves and from the world, become more evident. The embodied heart is naturally wise and responsive. By seeing and knowing our experience through the body, we release the obstacles to happiness, ease, and freedom.
