We have heard a lot about mindfulness, now here is a book about bodyfulness. In these times of restriction, constriction, fear and isolation we need a sense of joy and pleasure more than ever. The author is a psychologist and a licensed yoga teacher and is in a good place to describe techniques that will put us in touch with our own bodies and help us connect with others. It covers breathing, sexual intimacy, nutrition, Ayurveda and many other subjects and there are plentiful suggested exercises to try. She also discusses trauma and how cultural conditioning can hold us back. Sometimes we just need good old-fashioned joy and that can get lost amidst all the inner work we might do. But the best way reignite passion is through our bodies which after all is where we feel it most strongly.
