I am interested in a way of learning that is body-centred. This means that if you sense something to be true in YOUR BODY then you KNOW something about it - you have information about it and you have a sensory awareness of it.
For example have you ever walked into a room or a place and felt strange? You didn’t know why but it didn’t quite feel right? This is your body giving a reading of the environment and communicating to you via SENSATION which is your Body’s Intelligence.
Your body is communicating to you all the time. It does a great job of this because your body’s JOB is to keep you ALIVE. How big a job is that?
So what your body experiencing and therefore communicating to you is very important and I suggest - an instant way of accessing some serious intelligence about any situation.
How do I teach and why do I call it Body Intelligence?
I teach using the communication of the body, so I create a learning context and then invite participants to ‘sense your body’ and notice what arises. From this reading of sensation you then have a KNOWING of what you perceive in relation to the learning context, or situation.
This KNOWING is what Malcolm Gladwell calls BLINK (The power of thinking without thinking https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink:_The_Power_of_Thinking_Without_Thinking )
You can save an infinite amount of TIME and MONEY by working in this way. Why? Because your body’s intelligence is:
- Always available
- Never takes the day off
- Tells the absolute truth
- On your side
