Nous cherchons toutes sortes de distractions pour échapper à ce que nous vivons : écrans, consommation, divertissements. Dans un monde obsédé par les objectifs et la performance, nous finissons par être déconnectés de nous-mêmes. Ce livre nous invite au contraire à aller vers l intérieur et à descendre dans notre corps. Il nous apprend à habiter attentionnellement notre expérience sensorielle. Il nous ramène littéralement dans notre peau.

Mon intention est de vous conduire en plein c ur de votre vie. À l intérieur de votre corps, là où tout se passe; à l intérieur d une intimité que vous avez peut-être déjà ressentie; à l intérieur d une qualité d écoute plutôt que d un savoir, d une manière de ressentir plutôt que de réagir. Cette pratique méditative est radicalement transformatrice.
