Most of us learned that our bodies were something to fear, perfect, ignore, or overcome. As a result, we have largely become a disconnected & dissociated people—not fully alive to ourselves, others, God, and the rest of creation.

We were made for more.

In Becoming Alive, participants will be invited to incorporate body-based practices into their spiritual formation. Each week we will focus on a different theme and practice.

From befriending our bodies to learning the language of our bodies, we will seek to know God—not only in our midst, but present to us through our uniquely embodied self.

If you have a fraught relationship with your body—or no relationship at all—this course may be a healing next step.
