478. Nature, Gurus & Meditation as Art – With Jamie McHugh and Mark Walsh

Jamie McHugh who is a somatic movement and meditation teacher joins me to talk Californian greats, nature connection, virtual teaching, Guru detection, lateralisation, active meditation, the “art of lively stillness”, creativity and meditation, and US vs European embodiment. A good one if you want to think more deeply about meditation.

Jamie McHugh, MA, RSMT is an interdisciplinary artist, somatic movement specialist and the creator of Somatic Expression® – Body Wisdom for Modern Times. His somatic-expressive practices for re-wilding the body, mending the mind and restoring the spirit have been inspired by his relationships with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Emilie Conrad, Anna Halprin, Thich Nhat Hanh and the wild places of the planet, and through working with diverse groups of people internationally for over 40 years.
