A step-by-step guide to accessing the body deva, your body consciousness, for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing
• Details how to dialogue with the consciousness of your body to heal a variety of issues, from physical pains to limiting beliefs
• Explains how our bodies, consciousness, and spirit are interconnected and how our physical bodies hold emotions and past traumas
• Explores how to work with the body deva to heal spiritual patterns through the physical body, including techniques of ancestral healing, past life healing, and karmic resolution
We are not our pain or our disease, nor are we defined by our limitations, restrictions, or the labels given to us. We are a whole body, a consciousness, and a spiritual being. As a holistic, interconnected being, our emotions, beliefs, physical pain, past traumas, and even imbalances created through spiritual issues are held within our physical form. By accessing them through the physical body with the body deva--the spiritual consciousness of our human body--we can heal the continuum of mind, body, and spirit. Understanding this is the true key to healing.
In this step-by-step guide to understanding and working with the body deva, the consciousness of your body, Mary Mueller Shutan explains how our bodies hold the traumatic energies, emotions, physical issues, and restricting beliefs that cause us pain and feelings of disconnection. She details how to make contact and dialogue with your body deva to heal a variety of issues, from physical pains to ancestral and past life patterns to limiting ideas about what we can accomplish in this world. By working with the body deva, she shows how we can discover the reasons why our pain, beliefs, or imbalances developed and resolve them to heal mind, body, and spirit, every layer of our being. She explores how to work with the archetypes, labels, limiting beliefs, and myths that underlie our unique history and reasons for being. Shutan also examines how to work with the body deva to heal spiritual patterns through the physical body, including techniques of ancestral healing, past life healing, and karmic resolution.
By learning to dialogue with the body deva, you can understand who you are on the deepest levels. You can learn why your pain and imbalances came to be and what lies unhealed within you. You can evolve beyond the limitations and restrictions in your body and your life and evolve into greater health, connection, joy, and consciousness.

“Mary is a gifted and compassionate teacher, and this book is ideal for anybody ready to move beyond the mentality of the quick fix. The exercises may appear surprisingly simple on the page, but working through them with patience and focus reveals their potency and their depth. The Body Deva is of great value as a workbook for self-healing, as a compendium of healing techniques, and as a guide toward an expanded view of the self.”

“All of Mary Shutan’s work is brilliant. Her fourth book, The Body Deva, may very well be her best thus far. This book allows the reader to connect with their own body’s wisdom in a grounded way that is an important step to greater self-connection and spiritual growth. There is a lot of material available that takes a person’s spiritual journey outside of themselves; The Body Deva brings you back into yourself.”
