The Body Awake
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.
It's about what we're made of, how we move, how illness, injury and healing happen, and what we can do with that information to live better lives.

Transmission, Concurrence and Poetry with Lauren Christman — ep 22
Since the show's earliest inception, I knew I wanted to interview Lauren for The Body Awake. When the time was right, I asked, so glad she agreed. Lauren was my main teacher in helping me understand the many layers and types of fluids, bone rhythms and subtleties of working with a body in my care. She's a rare gem. We talk about so much ... transmission of information, concurrence of multiple views emerging simultaneously, how to answer the "what's the best treatment here?" question without being too general and without being flippant. And for the last 20 minutes, she reads poetry and I cry. So, so enjoyed this talk. I hope you do too. Love, LB SHOW NOTES Crafted Touch, Lauren's bodywork and teaching homepage. Integrative Pain Management, in which Lauren and her husband, Richard, co-author a chapter.
