How to Access Your Body's Vast Reservoir of Wisdom and Creativity

Every experience occurs first in the body—then our mind interprets, judges, and adds a story to what occurred. "By learning to tune into the energetic experience of our body," teaches Jonathan Foust, "we can access the awareness that allows our creativity, compassion, and intuition to shine through." With Body-Centered Inquiry, this experienced teacher brings you a powerful approach that synthesizes mindfulness meditation, focusing, and intuitive inquiry as a pathway for developing this powerful connection to our greatest natural source of wisdom.

Practices to Enliven the Relationship Between Mind, Body, and Spirit

The Body-Centered Inquiry process begins with simply realizing what's occurring in each moment. With accessible meditation practices, Foust teaches you how to meet each experience with non-judgmental curiosity and acceptance. You'll learn mindfulness practices to cultivate open-hearted kindness toward even the most difficult emotions, thoughts, and memories. Finally, you'll learn essential skills for transforming stuck feelings through forgiveness, honing your intuition, and investigating the deepest truths of your own heart and mind.

With accessible teaching and practical meditations, Body-Centered Inquiry shows you how to reliably access the "still, small voice within" that speaks with the wisdom of the body to find answers to persistent problems, set free your creativity, and deepen the connection between your body and mind.

The suite of practices offered in this program represents the unique depth and breath of Jonthan's knowledge and experience in directly accessing the healing power of the mind/body connection.

The tools presented in this program are a reflection of a livetime commitment to the exploration and intregration of the felt sense, emotional healing, and spiritual awakening.

So easily accessable and directly applicable I find this one of the of the most untilized products in my personal collection.

I attended a workshop with Jonathan that explored some of these practices years ago. This CD was very useful in helping me to reconnect to the practices and continue my personal growth. Not only are the talks and guided meditations abundantly useful and practical, I found the quality of Jonathan's voice to be evidence that he is the "real deal."
