The Art of Somatic Mindfulness

Lama Willa Blythe Baker

Lama Willa Blythe Baker helps us access the body’s wisdom through an exploration of the four layers of embodiment: the physical, energetic, mental, and integrative. These layers are increasingly subtle, and Lama Miller explains how we can develop our awareness as we attune to them. By learning to listen more closely to our bodies, we can open our hearts and liberate our minds, opening the door to a deeper engagement with the world.

In this series, Insight teacher Leslie Booker investigates sila and the five ethical precepts as the foundation for all of our actions.
