Tara Owens-Episode 69
Tara Owens is senior editor for Conversations Journal. She also provides spiritual direction through Anam Cara Ministries and is a part-time instructor for the Benedictine Spiritual Formation Program at Benet Hill Monastery. She, along with her husband and daughter, make their home in Colorado Springs.
Tara focuses on a much neglected topic in her book Embracing the Body. The title says it all and in the evangelical church the body has been much neglected. It has been split off from the soul and basically labeled as less important. That could not be further from the truth. Tara says that our bodies teach us about God, and God communicates to us through our bodies. If you’ve had an on-again, off-again relationship with your own body, this is a must listen to podcast and you might want to pick up a copy of Tara’s book to work through with a friend.
You can find Tara at her website or the Anam Cara Facebook page of which I’m a fan.
