A local temple to the Goddess, formally known as Ebenezer Lutheran Church, or HerChurch, is a purple eyesore a few miles away. On their website is a staff list, which includes the "Minister of Embodiment." Some middle aged white woman, dancing.
When I am working out, I am well aware of my body. When I am up close and personal with another man, even more so. Sometimes overwhelmingly so.
I am also aware of my body when I feel emotions, especially the dark ones of fear and anger and grief. Mostly in my stomach. As if I have been kicked and then jumped on. Exhausting.
