Sensory, emotional and intuitive information is often overshadowed (minimized, denied, ridiculed, rejected, etc.) by the mind, and trying to put this information into words isn't always easy. However, we can learn to ask the body how it feels and allow it answer through movements.
How much space do you take up? How do you move in a group? What movements feel good? What proximity to others is ok, not ok? What do you experience in your body around other people? Around who? Why? Does eye contact effect you? How? What rhythms feel comfortable? Can you be spontaneous? What causes you to freeze up? Can you feel what 'no' or 'yes' feels like in your body?
When you practice listening to this information, you will start to physically feel when you are stuck in your head or not, feel what is true, real, right/wrong for you, and what is not, and when something is a “yes” or a “no”. You can tell by whether you feel energized, receptive and fluid, or depleted, guarded, anxious and stuck.
People work with conscious movement as an integrative healing practice because it has the power to restore harmony between the body, mind and spirit.
