Anne Klein - The Wisdom of the Body

January 29, 2021

In this episode, Wendy speaks with Buddhist scholar and teacher Anne Klein. They speak about the role of the body in practice and transformation, and touch on many topics, including:

  • her interest in Buddhism as a lens on the mind;
  • the role of the body in contemplative practice;
  • the dangers of not being embodied;
  • microphenomenology;
  • Eastern conceptions of the subtle/energy body;
  • the construction of self and other;
  • how the body can help us break out of rigid self-concepts;
  • the power of the imagination;
  • why we think things will always stay the same;
  • and how studying the feminine sheds light on interdependence.
