CHURCH OF THE BODY

Your body is the physical manifestation of your being, the vessel in which your soul resides. It is a sacred temple that should be treated with respect and care. Your body is your first friend, always by your side from birth to death, supporting you through every experience. It carries your memories, emotions, and identity. Your body is the connection to the divine, whether through the senses or the intuition. It allows you to experience the beauty of the world, to connect with others, and to feel the presence of a higher power. Acknowledging and honoring your body as a temple, your first friend, and a conduit to the divine can help you to cultivate a deeper sense of self-love, awareness, and spirituality.

Do only that which is right.
every individual is free to practice their religion however they like as long as their actions do not impinge upon the rights or freedoms of others and are in accordance with the law.

 

Sacred Body

In this sacred community, we understand that our bodies are microcosms of the universe—beautiful, intelligent, and interconnected entities made of the very atoms that form the cosmos. Our bodies are the first and only connection we have to both the infinitely small and the infinitely large.

 

Your Body

Through the practices inspired by ancient wisdom and modern understanding, we seek to connect with a profound love, appreciation, and connection with our bodies. We see them as vessels of divine wisdom and portals to a deeper understanding of the universe

 

Body-Universality Connection

We are atoms in contemplation of atoms. Our bodies provide a tangible, visceral connection to the cosmos and everything within it.

 

Sentient Body Communication:

Sentient Body Communication: Our bodies communicate with us continually, not just through physical sensations, but through our dreams, habits, mistakes, joys, and even our stumbles. They are sentient entities, constantly sharing wisdom and insights with us. The key is to learn how to listen.

 

Body Intelligence

Our bodies are intelligent entities, in tune with the energies and cycles of the universe. They carry wisdom and insight to share with us.

 

Body Love and Appreciation:

Our bodies are divine and deserving of our deepest love and respect. We nurture this bond through daily practices of gratitude and care.

 

Interconnection:

By loving and connecting with our bodies, we love and connect with the universe. This connection fosters harmony within us and the world around us.

The Practice

From mindful movement and energy work to reflective fasting and feasting, our practices are designed to help you commune with your body and, by extension, the cosmos. Through body meditation, you can tap into your body’s wisdom. Through energy balancing, you can align yourself with the ebb and flow of the universe. Join us on this journey of self-discovery, self-love, and cosmic connection. Welcome to the Church of the Body.
