Inspiring Minds: Live Conversations Offering Wisdom for Our Time

Our December conversation, “Finding Connections: Pathways to Embodied Wisdom,” features Peter Wayne, Willa Blythe Baker, and Srinivas Reddy. The event will begin with a distinguished presentation by Peter Wayne, who is the recipient of Catherine Kerr Award for Courageous and Compassionate Science. Learn more about Peter Wayne’s work and the Kerr Award on our blog.

Our conversation on December 16 from 2:00-3:30pm ET featured our guests discussing the relevance of ancient wisdom practices today and the profound inner-knowing that lies within the body. We explored: 

  • How transdisciplinary approaches inform mind-body and integrative medicine research and clinical care; and
  • Embodied practices (e.g., Tai Chi, Qigong, somatic-oriented meditation, yoga) for accessing the wisdom of the body
