Synopsis


There is wisdom in desire. It is a wisdom impelling us to move in ways that align our pleasure with our health and well-being. Yet trained as we are in mind over body ways of living, we tend to perceive our desires as unruly forces that we must control or be controlled by. We blame our desires for our dissatisfaction. We have learned to ignore what our bodies know. In response, What a Body Knows offers a new philosophy of bodily becoming that welcomes our desires as the best resources we have in guiding us to the health and well-being we seek. Focusing on our desires for food, sex, and spirit, LaMothe explains how we can shift our experience of these desires, and learn to find, trust, and move with the wisdom they contain. Kimerer LaMothe is an award-winning philosopher, dancer, and scholar of religion and lives on a farm in rural New York.
