A funny thing happened yesterday during my NLP training: all students were asked to break up in pairs and give each other a foot massage; nothing fancy, just as a way to help each other relax. It turned out to be an exercise in feeling your perception in unexpected situations (so there was no foot massage). The main thing I had not expected is the resistance to the (dummy) foot massage in some fellow students. Have we become so astranged to/ashamed of our bodies that we don't even dare to show our feet to people who we'll be doing a training with for 6 months?! To be honest, that quite shocked me. This is my body. These are my feet. They are just feet. I'm neither proud nor ashamed. I respect them really because they'll be running 21 km in 4 weeks. But that's about it. Anybody want to massage them??
