Rev. Nancy returns from vacation and study break with stories to share, lessons learned, and questions for us all: What happens when we humans give our bodies credit as one of our three centers of intelligence? What do our bodies tell us about what we’ve been through in the past 18 months? What are our bodies asking of us now?

Rev. Nancy brings the summer’s study of generative somatics* together with some practical experience and the model of Olympic athletes to nudge us toward a deeper authenticity, a wider compassion, and a courageous way to live that’s loving and inclusive for us all.

*Generative somatics begins with the soma, a less loaded word than “body” in our culture. “The soma is the interconnected thinking, emotions, actions, relating, and worldview, embodied. All of this lives in and through the body…. Somatics … holds the body as inseparable from the Self and how we live, act, and relate.”
– Staci K. Haines, The Politics of Trauma: Somatics, Healing, and Social Justice
