This episode features sample chapters from the audiobook version of Mike Boxhall's "The Empty Chair: the Teaching not the T-shirt"
For decades Mike Boxhall has been conducting workshops that combine the practice of stllness with physical contact and a deep trust in the emergence of creative intelligence. At the request of his students he wrote about his experience of the interface between spiritual practice, craniosacral therapy, and everyday life. "The Empty Chair: the Teaching not the T-shirt" is the result of that effort. This book is a classic in the field of craniosacral therapy. It is a distillation of insight gained from over forty years of exploration into the depth of the human condition, offering us hope and guidance for allowing the emergence of health into our awareness.
