A crucial and rather beautiful conversation about how we relate to our bodies in relative isolation. Some down-to-earth, open-hearted sharing of experience about things physical: the signs and symptoms and weathers of our bodies; the beneficial effect on our mental health of imaginative connection with other embodied beings; and the kindly wisdom in learning to see and name our actual physical experience instead of becoming lost in speculation.

We're joined for an all Southern Hemisphere affair by Suvarnadhi from Auckland, NZ and her fellow Kiwi Vidyamala, founder of Breathworks, and pioneer of mindfulness work for people dealing with chronic pain.

Life is flowing through our bodies and through everything else. An encouraging, practical episode about how much we might open up to this reality. Includes a beautiful reading of Derek Mahon's poem 'Everything is Going to Be All Right'. And we also learn how to play "rummy cup". Sort of!
