Winter always makes me think about the body.
Not in the play-all-day show-some-skin ways of summer, but in the gentle rhythms of rest and relaxation, hibernation and holy listening. Winter encourages me to listen to what is moving below the surface and waiting to patiently to sprout like a bulb in spring. Just in time for the arrival of spring and the season of Lent, Christine Valters Paintner is releasing her latest book, The Wisdom of the Body: A Contemplative Journey to Wholeness for Women, inviting us to attune ourselves to the Sacred insight stirring within, from breath to bones, waiting to be released.
Today I’m sharing an interview with her on her new book and how to begin to tap into the body’s wisdom. The book doesn’t release until March 3, 2017, but you can enter to win a copy of your own at the bottom of the post! (Only US readers eligible.)
