As part of this Summit, I will be speaking on This Sacred Body. Our Contemplative Prayer and encounter with the Holy One can only take place in our incarnate whole being. We are not separate from our bodies, thus Contemplative Prayer must include them along with our thoughts and feelings. Within all Wisdom and Contemplative Traditions, people have known this to be true and still our bodies have been viewed as leading us astray from our spiritual path. Our bodies want to be included in our spirituality, through gesture, posture, and the wisdom of sensation, they understand things that our mind and emotion cannot. Sign up here.

Wisdom is, concerned with the transformation of the whole human being. Transformation from what to what? Well, for a starter, from our animal instincts and egocentricity into love and compassion; from a judgmental and dualistic worldview into a nondual acceptingness. This was the message that Jesus, apparently out of nowhere, came preaching and teaching, a message that was radical in its own time and remains equally radical today.
