#87 How To Attune To The Guidance Of The Sensuous — Philip Shepherd

 How To Attune To The Guidance Of The Sensuous

“You can't reason your way into love, you can't reason your way into harmony. Only as you surrender to wholeness that you partake of the harmony of the world.”

Says my guest Philip Shepherd, Founder of Radical Wholeness, my metaphor for the body is like a resonator that attunes to the world around us. The body is the most profound resource of intelligence that is available to us and it's not an intelligence that is enclosed in the self, it's an intelligence that opens to the world and works hand in hand with it. My definition of embodiment is it's a state in which the whole of your intelligence comes into coherence with the present.
