Welcome to The Wise Body
Start exploring here
Hello there. This post sits at the doorway into The Wise Body. Come on in…
I envision this substack as a library with different areas that you can explore at your leisure, and that will grow over time as I add to them. You may find yourself coming back to particular areas again and again, or wandering through all of them each time you visit. It’s entirely up to you how you engage.
You can read more about why I started this substack, how and what I write about, and who I am on the About page.
This index is a starting point, but it’s not always going to be up-to-date. The best way to know about all my new material is to subscribe. You’ll get an email every fortnight or month with the latest written posts and guided meditations, and you can unsubscribe anytime.
Let’s dive in! Consider the following section indexes like a helpful signpost to guide you where you’d like to go.
In general, new material will be visible on the main page of this substack when it is first posted, and for a little while after that. All material can be found in the Archive, and audio practices can be found in the Practice Center—both of these are tabs on the main page menu.
