Zoom fatigue and covid exhaustion all the time? Want to know a simple, effective way to find liberation? Your body! No matter where you are, no matter the shape, age, or condition of your body, you can find spiritual and emotional relief through deeper connections with your body. Walt Whitman celebrated the “body electric.”  Lucille Clifton proclaimed her “big hips mighty and magic.” The artistic, biological, and spiritual truth is that every body is a miracle beyond our capacity to comprehend. In beloved community, we help each other to “get out of our heads” and get into the blessings of our bodies.
