Through a cultivation of embodiment we can more fully awaken, heal, and respond to life. As such, we can integrate many practices of awakening with embodiment, making our awakening much stronger and more rooted and integrated in our lives. Ryan will guide us in a foundational embodiment meditation of inhabiting our body as embodied awareness. By inhabiting our body in awareness we have full access to our entire being and we enter into relationship with our environment, others, and the world.
