“I invite you to consider a possibility ... that wisdom lives in each of us. And, perhaps that wisdom also lives in all of us collectively. By wisdom, I mean a knowing that is not defined nor fettered by, not filtered through, the conceptual frameworks of this small, separate unit that we call 'me.' This wisdom is a fresh way of looking, a big perspective, an awareness that comes from openness, from spaciousness, from non-concept, from direct experience. It is a 'knowing'—knowing how to care for this planet and all the beings living here. And this knowing is desperately needed now.”
                                                                     --Arawana Hayashi

How can we deepen our capacity to pay attention to the moment by moment unfolding or emerging of experience? Join Arawana Hayashi for an exploration of the wisdom of the three bodies. The Human Body’s language is feeling - not emotions, but sensation - posture, qualities, a sense of being. Feeling the Earth Body, with its resources, wealth, and reliability, we are held close; otherwise, we would float into space. The Social Body is the experience of the social fabric that we co-create moment by moment with others. Can we feel ourselves as an interdependent part of all the social bodies in which we live? More than ever, our world needs all of us and needs this body-sensing-knowing intelligence in order to bring our world and all its beings back into balance.
