To be in a body....... How much thought do you put into your experience of being in one? It’s something many don’t think about until something goes wrong and you are confronted with pain. A lot of effort goes into understanding the mind, in fact most people see their body as just a vehicle for the brain. Outside of anatomy and the physiology of parts, not as much attention is put into the significance of our entire bodily experience or our #bodymind
The more I dance and journey into the experience of being in my body, the less I experience the world from behind my eyes and face. I’ll never forget the first time I sensed being alive from my heart, not my head.... and sensing that the boundaries of my flesh were not the boundaries of my mind, soul or consciousness. Dance is a holistic philosophy that brings deep awareness and insight to “being”. I have been so privileged to work with so many bodies and share the philosophy of dance with so many 🙏💗 #dancewisdom #somaticmovement #embodied #philosophyofdance #bodywisdom #sadiebellydance #sadiemarquardt #raqsflow
