In our conversation we explore the connection between embodiment and waking up in the world.
We look at the at the distinctions between what Loch calls effortless mindfulness, and the forms of mindfulness that are more widely taught. We talk about spiritual awakening as a natural next stage of adult development, and how when we are both waking up and growing up, we are much more resourced to respond to the great challenges in the world today. Loch also guides us in a couple of powerful short glimpse practices to offer listeners the direct experience of the concepts we are exploring.
We loved this conversation and hope you do too!
