Damiana Carpizzo on Healing
Damiana took us on a journey. By the end of it, we knew a lot more about the biological body, had insight into the direct connection between having a soft body and having clear awareness of our interconnected nature, felt awe for these bodies and these lives of ours, and realized the power and goodness that spontaneously comes from this place of clarity.

I think that just walking, just being on this planet, connected to the sacredness of life and the gift of living in this body that’s such a sophisticated instrument that allows us to hug and taste and move and think and speak; coming back to the awe, to the awe of what we have now and also to the gratitude for it. “Enjoy every sandwich.” It’s simple. From realizing the preciousness, so much comes, so much giving and truly living comes. ###Thanks for listening!
