Study Guide

Embodied contemplative practice is a way of relating to ourselves by noticing everything with a ton of compassion. That consistent way you lose your temper when you’re driving. The fear you feel around new people. The joy that bubbles up when you finally get to do what you want to do. We notice it, and we welcome it all in.

If this is of interest to you, here are some teachers and resources for further study. May they serve.
