Embodied Spirituality is a growing body of work that marries embodiment and spirituality. Many approaches to yoga, meditation, contemplation, nature-based spirituality, and even aspects of all the major religions can be included in embodied spirituality.
How do we go through the body to spiritual connection?
So much of organized religion developed around controlling and subduing our bodies and our emotions to grow spiritually. Embodied spirituality embraces the awakened body, emotional awareness, relationship, sexuality, family life, and political activism.
Many approaches to embodied spirituality emphasize the heart. The heart is the gateway to so much of our spiritual potential. In our approach, as explicated in the soon to be released book, Heart Open, Body Awake: The Four Steps of Embodied Spirituality, the spiritual heart and the actual physical heart are recognized as an inseparable unity. In fact, the book explores how all of experiential anatomy can be an essential part of the spiritual path.
