Learning from Bodies

“If we confine ourselves to ideas that are best suited to legislation, picket signs, and the combox, we will lose the richest vocabulary of human dignity, one better expressed in embraces and diaper changes than in words. If we let bodies speak to us in their own language, by being present to them and offering the gifts of touch and physical care, we can learn what is truly at stake and why it matters.”

I thought this article, “Learning from Bodies,” by Nora Calhoun was worth sharing: http://www.firstthings.com/article/2014/08/learning-from-bodies
