ReWilding Animal Body: Waking Up Our Senses
April 7 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Just as every coherent animal in the wild kingdom sends messages,
humans, like all mammals, gesture with the twitch of an ear, a gleam in the eye, a hair standing on end, an arc of the spine.
Ignoring the wild nature of psoas can be very dangerous.
~ stalking wild psoas: embodying your core intelligence
Tracking is the honing of internal and external sensory skills that help us sniff out when something doesn’t feel right. A trust that grows proportionally to developing our perceptual system’s “ways of seeking and extracting information about the environment from the flowing array of ambient energy.” Engaging, exploring, as well as being challenged and pushing back is the self-organizing intelligence that brings us toward core balance. Our animal body knows the truth of the matter and becomes the source for locating self within the larger world.
Perception is one kind of, and indeed the primordial, and fundamental, type of knowledge.
For the senses are our only source of informational input from the world;
without them we could know nothing.
Marjorie Grene, “The Understanding of Nature: Essays in the Philosophy of Biology “ Philosophy of Science
Our senses are living organs intended to receive communications.
They connect us to, interweave us with, the stream of informational energy that comes to us every moment of every day.
