Sometimes things get weird

By Jen Peer Rich Sometimes our weirdest behaviors are actually the unspeakable expressions of grieving, healing and transformation happening inside. Energy always finds a way out. Waking up is full of recognitions that hurt. It’s sad to realize we’ve been victimized. It’s heartbreaking to realize we have been stretched into such painful dimensions by outside […]

The somatic imperative and meditation

Most of my deep meditations still happen while lying down. This remains necessary because the somatic experience remains far too intense to otherwise tolerate sitting.

Somatic mysticism: reframing “hyper-sensitivity”

Food for thought or contemplation

I’m mostly not blogging anymore, it’s true, but I do still jot down thoughts from time to time. I’m sharing a bunch of those thoughts from the last couple of months.

Be well. Remember, healing is not a linear process! Love to you all.
