S2E10: When Body Breaks New Ground - Marjorie (pt1‪)‬ Soul Forum

    • Religion & Spirituality

In this episode, Dan sits down with Marjorie who is a storyteller. The stories she tells emerge from a body that has faced both emotional and physical trauma that derailed her from the linear path most of us think we travel, and set her on one that feels more like a circle. There is nothing graceful about the journey, but there may be some strange grace that allows a greater sense of self in the world.
Don’t we all walk away a bit wounded as we face all that life holds? How does it have an affect on the character of your soul? Take a walk around the island with us, as we reflect on the wisdom Marjorie brings to the journey.
-More About Our Guest-
Nearly thirty years ago Marjorie found herself in a hospital bed after brain surgery to save her life, paralyzed on her right side. The years since then have been a healing journey as she has regained her ability to walk, with support. Little did she know those years ago that one day she would be the author of five Easy Walks walking books focused on helping others, including those with mobility issues, to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Her most recent book, a memoir, is available on Amazon: My Liturgy of Easy Walks: Finding the Sacred in Everyday (and some very strange) places.

Soul Forum: A conversational journey across the landscape of the collective soul. 
In this series - SoulBody - we explore the wisdom and wonder within our own bodies that can provide a pathway into the experience of soul. The season begins with reflections on the body each of us inhabits and ends with reflections on the wider earth or cosmic body. There is plenty of reasons to trust that any access to a relationship with the divine, or mystery, or the very essence of life, is primarily accessed through the body. Can we reverse the idea that the sacred has figured out how to incarnate, or become flesh and bone, and explore how our sense of the sacred manifests from within every body? How might you honor and explore the body that invites you into wonder?
