Presence: Cultivating Embodiment with Christine Valters Paintner

Christine Valters Paintner will guide us as we explore the true meaning of the Incarnation—God became flesh—and points to the spiritual importance of appreciating the bodies God gave us.The invitation to be truly present to our own body is now louder and more relevant as we face divisions and disconnections. We are invited to cultivate a deeper and more grounded presence to our body so we can be more present to others and nature. We hope to learn how to become more comfortable in our own skin and more aware of our internalized trauma.

Who is this for?

  • Those who are accompanying other people in their journey
  • Those who are engaged in body movements and their connection to the soul – yoga, mindfulness and others.
  • Those who are undergoing Spiritual Formation
