Feeling Lost on the Way to Core Integrity
(2-Hr Movement Class via Zoom)
Feeling lost she does not know how to proceed.
I sense a mix of emotions within her – as if something inside simply has to give.
Although she is beginning to recognize her vulnerability, the feeling is unfamiliar and, truthfully, quite terrifying to her.
Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence
The sense of feeling lost within a somatic inquiry can easily evoke looking outward for answers…but it is by getting lost that our sensory system awakens and new capabilities open up that foster innovating responses. We discover our knowing that which is invisible begins to unfold… Catching a fleeting glimpse, detecting a movement at the perimeter of awareness, there may be a new sense that something is not yet acknowledged, or feels lost, and yet is on the cutting edge of consciousness. Perhaps this is what hunting or being hunted feels like in the wild kingdom. Quick moving, it can be too difficult to catch an impulse that sets our being into reaction: a desire to jump and escape as well as a longing to connect and be found. Following initiation of an expression requires a patient slowing of pace and a quieting receptivity in the heart to perceive the impulse just before it comes into being. It takes a bifurcating focus of awareness that moves inward and concurrently outward toward a larger field of influence. In this way, we can stay present to feel the origins of our fear and the impulses of our longing.
