Embracing the Body

Finding God in Our Flesh and Bone

by Tara M. Owens

In Embracing the Body spiritual director Tara Owens invites you to listen to your thoughts about your body in a way that draws you closer to God, calling you to explore how your spirituality is intimately tied to your physicality. Using exercises for reflection at the end of each chapter, she guides you to see your body not as an inconvenience but as a place where you can meet the Holy in a new way—a place to embrace God's glorious intention.

This book is beautiful, learned and wise. It will make you think, and it will make you want to say 'amen'—and, more important, it will enable you more fully to live as a body.
Lauren F. Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Still
