Full Body Presence: Learning to Listen to Your Body's Wisdom
Many teachers stress the importance of living in the present moment. Few give the actual practices to make it attainable. This book teaches you how to return to the incredible navigational system of the body and more fully inhabit each moment.
For over twenty-five years, Suzanne Scurlock-Durana has masterfully taught her step-by-step practice of present moment awareness through her own combination of bodywork and CranioSacral therapy. The practices of Full Body Presence help you find a deeper awareness in the moment, even in the midst of chaos, family and work demands, or the pressure to perform. This deeper awareness also brings a fuller sense of trust and confidence in yourself and in the world. Full Body Presence is filled with concrete, life-friendly explorations and instruction clearly presented in both the book and the free accompanying downloadable audio files.
By making a commitment to self investigation,Suzanne Scurlock-Durana claims a life is transformed. "Full Body Presence - Learning to Listen to Your Body's Wisdom" will take readers on an inner landscape tour through a series of principles and explorations. The main requirements for this adventure are willingness, curiosity and openness to the "now."
Beginning with trust as a sensation, Scurlock-Durana invites us to notice where we feel -or don't feel- this in our body. Using exercises such as meditation and journal questioning, we are brought into present moment to experience with all our senses and energies where we may be blocking wisdom within our bodies.
Continuing with four other principles (feel, integrate, expand and choose) and three explorations (awareness, grounding and releasing limitations) as tools "we can access our inner knowing, nourish ourselves with what we need, and create an intimate and strong relationship with ourselves on all levels."
The phrase live-in-the-moment, has long been a mantra for many of us, but one that takes on added importance and power in a time when we often feel beleaguered by the demands of life. Listening to our body's innate wisdom is no longer a part-time luxury. It is essential for transforming old fears and doubts and constructing a more solid connection to spirit's vital energy.
