Is there a connection between nudity and mindfulness? Do you pass judgments of shame and fear about yourself and your sexuality? What you see when you look at yourself naked in the mirror can be much different than what you feel when you look at yourself naked in the mirror. But if you can approach your body from a place of gratitude, realizing we are all naked under our clothes, you can own your nakedness for the beautiful gift that it is.
Host Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Rick Clemons, Sean Douglas,
Dr. Paul Jenkins, Lisa Baker-King and Barry Moniak to enlighten us with their unique perspective on being naked.
