Description

Most statements about embodied spirituality have been cerebral and abstract, presented from a theological or philosophical point of view. This massage manual seeks to give the reader an experience of embodied spirituality. The introduction situates massage, the art of anointing, within the framework of Christian spirituality and then proceeds to enflesh that through the meditative quality of the massage sequences, through the graphic and sensitive portrayal of vulnerability among the various men and women who volunteered to be the models in the sequences and, last but not least, through the visible devotion of the massage therapists.
