Recently, I have been reflecting a lot upon ideas and values I hold about the human body.

In trying to form a better understanding of love and compassion within and beyond the physical body, I somehow always come back to the connectedness of everything around us.  All of the little pieces that make up the whole.

I had previously posted a link to the amazing anatomy somanaut, Gil Hedley’s website.  In thinking about the body, compassion, and connectedness, I can’t help but think of Gil’s teaching.  I love how these short little anatomy lessons demonstrate the deep connectivity of the small body (the human one) to the larger whole (the everything).

A note for those sensitive to visuals of the inner body – you may wish to view the second video only.
