In this conversation, Judith Blackstone describes the experience of living within one’s body and uncovering a fundamental dimension of consciousness pervading one’s body and the environment as a unity. She explains how this experience deepens our sense of intimacy and contact with other people at the same time as it deepens our contact with our own being. The embodiment of fundamental consciousness also enhances and unifies our basic qualities and functions, including our ability to know, feel, sense and perceive.
