Out of the naked yoga was born a Clothing-Discretionary Interfaith Body-Positive Church Service called Holy Body Worship, which I lead with friend and colleague Rev. Goddess Charmaine. Now in its 3rd successful year, we are taking this time to reinstate its standing as a ‘clothing-optional’ occasion, having recently nicknamed it ‘Naked Church’. We meet on the 4th Sunday of the month in midtown Manhattan.

Holy Body Worship is an Interfaith spiritual service that celebrates the intimacy and uniqueness of the body and soul relationship. This occurs through respecting and acknowledging the body as a temple and recognizing it as the boat selected by our spirit for incarnation. The choice of being naked or skyclad during Service is utilized to further express fear and observe our body-soul relationship to Source. Our bodies are amazing miracles, intricate ecosystems, walking artwork – each unique, sacred and a piece of God/Goddess/ http://nudism-life.com .
The clothes optional’ is just that elective. You are never required to be nude during service. It is a matter of choice and truth in the present moment based on how your body feels and wishes to express itself. In service, we see nudity as a form of transparency and affair. We bare our souls and the locations that have been concealing our living inauthentically and bring ourselves back to credibility, foil and one-ness. If we feel safeguarded when we remove our clothing it’s not a type of party, and we have really moved our relationship to body/soul/source out of its union and into fragmentation, inauthenticity. On the other hand, if you have felt safeguarded your entire life, maybe that is the moment to experience your union and one ness through nudity, moving through your anxiety and embracing yourself holy’ and entirely because moment.
In Holy Body Worship, we pick to be unclothed or to celebrate with others who are unclothed to explore a deeper level of closeness with our bodies, our souls, each other, and the divine. To remove that which keeps us separate and to bring us back into the right relationship with body, soul, Source. Whole-y Body Worship celebrates and takes a stand for the right to choose to worship your body naked or clothed or in any state of disrobe that feels suitable to you in the present moment. At exactly the same time it acknowledges that that decision may shift from moment to moment. We encourage you to ask yourself what makes you feel powerful, sacred, crazy, sexual, free, and completely you and to celebrate your body soul union from that place. “

Que es Nudismo ?

Traducido por (Translated by): Randybej
El nudismo es la filosofAa por la cual la gente cree en los beneficios de estar y vivir desnudo. En la actualidad, es la creencia o la practica de ir sin ropa en privado o en publico. Frecuentemente refleja la eleccion familiar o personal de un estilo de vida que tambien puede ser llamado como “naturismo”. Lo que es interesante acerca del nudismo es el hecho que es facilmente aceptado a traves de muchas culturas, especialmente aquellas descendientes de Europa, incluyendo Alemania, Francia y Polonia. En el siglo pasado, el nudismo ha llegado a ser cada vez mas aceptable en Estados Unidos. Por ejemplo, en 1995 se establecio La Asociacion Americana para la Recreacion Nudista ( AANR = de sus siglas en Ingles), que incluye cerca de 100 centros de recreacion y 150 clubles nudistas para deflection.
