About This Show
The Body Awake is a podcast for people interested in health and the human body, and in having a conversation beyond the body as merely a machine.

Ep 11: Tantra, Healing Trauma and the Teachings of Nature with David Cates
3 days ago
David Cates is a tantra teacher ... sort of. (That's actually the first thing we get into in the interview: defining terms.) What that means for YOU, whether bodyworker or yoga teacher or curious bodymind looking to apply what we talk about here on the show into your life, is a deep inquiry about: the 2nd chakra/sacrum/sexual-creative center of the body, healing sexual trauma of many shapes and sizes, what we can learn from observing the natural world and, in many ways the thing I found the most useful, just hearing David's take as a long-time teacher of an art, a practice, that keeps evolving on its own terms. Hope you enjoy, as always!
