Banyen's Description: 

Ged Sumner introduces the unique Body Intelligence form of meditation which creates a deeply felt connection with the physical body. The exercises and meditations inspire readers to take time out from the stresses of modern life, and helps them to tune in to subtle states of life that lie within the body. Pathways are provided to access different levels of connections, from the powerful, collective wholeness of the diaphragm to the calmness and flow of the fluid body. With a little practice a deep relationship and awareness emerges.

The innovative methods Sumner describes allow practitioners to open up their awareness of the body's sensations, bringing about a powerful sense of presence and experience of the now. This can lead to remarkable meditative states of bliss, energy and trauma resolution.

For me, meditation is a journey into felt sense awareness and the natural forces of health within the body. So becoming present through sensitive relationship to the body opens up a tremendous amount of energy, and a new consciousness starts to reveal itself. The body is our anatomy and physiology, and the mind is not separate from it but rather based upon and within it.

 

This book attempts to bring you into a refined relationship with your body through understanding and appreciating your anatomy as a living, intelligent express. You are your physiology, and your physiology is totally remarkable and has depths and functions that modern science is only just starting to appreciate. This is invaluable in charting the sea of awareness and sensations within us. As we grow in awareness of our bodies, we sink more deeply into its mysteries.

An original approach, this book will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in meditation, particularly practitioners of craniosacral therapy, chi kung, martial arts, shiatsu, yoga, Rolfing, massage and anyone who uses meditation to deepen and support their practice.

"This book by Ged Sumner, a craniosacral therapist and instructor, introduces the body intelligence meditation practice to create a deeply felt connection with the physical body. The book includes meditation exercises to help the reader find body awareness and create a calmness within. Intended as a resource for any bodywork or energy practitioner."— Massage & Bodywork magazine
