Product Description

In Embracing the Body, Tara Owens calls us to listen to our thoughts about our bodies in a manner that brings us closer to God. Are your thoughts about your body shameful? Painful? Or seemingly too private to bring in prayer? Then you may need to think about your earthly temple in a new way. She guides you to see your body not as an inconvenience but as a place to meet the holy and embrace God's intention for you. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter for reflection and exploration.

Publisher's Description

  • Foreword Reviews' 18th Annual INDIEFAB Book of the Year for Body, Mind and Spirit
  • 2015 Readers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention
Our bodies teach us about God, and God communicates to us through our bodies. Our bodies are more good than we can possibly imagine them to be. And yet at times we may struggle with feelings of shame and guilt or even pride in regard to our bodies. What is God trying to do through our skin and bones? 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.
