Here is the second of the 7 Shrines of the Body along with a meditation.
The abdomen is the source of our sexual energy containing powerful drives and a profound sense of our identity as gendered and sexual beings. As in the previous post I invite you to pause and consider the feeling of the energy that is held there, what experiences and memories are held there and what does it mean to encounter God in and with that part of your body?
You call me to connect and yearn for the other
And the fire that glows in my abdomen is the energy of creation.
As I’m drawn to entwine with another as friend or lover may that dance bring life and joy.
And so may I live the image of God, female and male.
