What do our bodies have to do with the spiritual? What stories of alienation, neglect, and embrace, shape how we inhabit our physical selves? In a world that often demands we divorce our minds from our bodies, we need habits of integration and attunement. Drawing on stories of chronic illness, trauma, and race, we will explore what it means to reclaim the physical good. Cole Arthur Riley is a writer and poet, the author of NYT bestseller This Here Flesh: Spirituality, Liberation, and the Stories that Make Us.
