Using Our Sensory System in Non-Traditional Ways
Liz Koch and Janine Naccarato
Since my childhood my mother knew that I was not like other children. Yet, I did not present with anything back then that professionals could identify only that I was not applying myself… [experiencing] sensory overload…always frightened, I was looked at as a behavior problem ~ perceived as un-cooperative.
We begin with Connecting to Our Senses… Skin, muscles, bones, organs and fluids. Exploring the senses at their physical locations with special “intell” powers ~ skin and air, ears as tools for vibration, eyes as sensing organs, tongue as tool… Ken-i-sphere: third eye ~ nose ~ tongue ~ ears ~ throat ~ heart ~ belly ~ solar plexus ~ pelvis, hands ~ feet
Motion as the Great Regulator …We connect to the outside world of sight sound and touch and taste in new ways. Like drinking in a moment or hearing through touch, scenting a moment. Sharpening your kin-e-sphere through sensory deprivation and moving into your wild.
Practicing Self Regulation…Exploring requires a readiness and awareness to achieve coherency. Touch tapping ~ eye movement ~ imagery ~ rhythmic breathing ~ vibration, voicing, hyper-annunciation, crying, screaming, rolling, sloshing
Untangling and differentiating... We move between sensory and motor experience in an effort to achieve a new level of awareness about how we are connected. As a human species, we are literally shedding our old skin and growing a new more elaborate skin…a neural network that will have extra perceptual capacity to help bring human kind through its next evolution. By establish sensory motor cues or a daily practice we open up this skill set. Mind body sensitization ~ Vestibular stimulation ~Auditory regulation ~ Kinesthetic mobilization ~ Diaphragmatic Vocalization.
