Body (Bendiness)

Dec 26, 2011

7 days  * 7 teachers * 7 questions

Introducing A Week of Looking Inward

One question posted each day this week for you to ponder in your own journal, on a walk, on your yoga mat, or over at our 7 Questions Facebook page.

Allow these offerings to turn you toward the source of your own wisdom. Take them as invitations to be lived rather than questions to be solved.

Today’s offering is from writer and teacher Patti Digh.

Question: Where have I learned and lived in 2011? In my head, in my body, or both? What would living more fully in my body in 2012 bring to me? How can I embody life and learning as I move through this liminal space between now and next? How can I more fully learn from the neck down in 2012?

In our hyper-intellectualized disembodied world, we sometimes allow technology to take the place of our bodies, don’t we? We sit, with only our arms moving as we type. We’ve even begun to distrust what our bodies say to us. Instead, we learn from the neck up, when learning from the neck down and fully embodying life will provide us with such greater riches. What do you allow yourself to really feel in your body, without the need to clarify, intellectualize, provide proof, capture with data, or block? What can you allow yourself to really feel in your body in 2012?
