The Doorway of the Body

The Joy of Embodied Presence is a four-week interactive online meditation program that explores the body as a powerful doorway into open awareness and the vibrancy of direct experience. Through simple practices of breath and movement, participants will connect with the deep stability of the body’s stillness and discover the aliveness of the present moment.
