The Vulnerability of Inhabiting a Body

“Between the head and the feet of any given person there are a billion miles of unexplored wilderness.” 

 Gabrielle Roth 

Our bodies carry us through this life. No matter the situation, body is here with us. Our bodies also have things to tell us. But that invitation to an inner relationship with body can sometimes feel like unexplored wilderness, and certainly vulnerable. This morning we will inquire what it means to inhabit a body, and safely invite body to be known, cherished and celebrated, whatever our historical relationships have been with it.
