Discerning Within

Wild  ~ Feral ~ Savage ~ Fawning

A Moving Collaboration between Liz Koch and Kimberly Johnson

Presented November 2020. The video recording is available by purchasing a ticket below.

Someone once told me that civilization is the shared obliviousness to the fact that we haven’t gotten rid of wild things, and that they dwell “within” us—somewhere beneath the threshold of normalcy. This wildness, this darkness, is not an “other.” We are continually sourced, recreated, and reconfigured here.

Bayo Akomolafe Finding the Dark: Decolonizing Darkness

Although the dictionary defines the “wild” as untamable, feral, out of control, riotous, ridiculous, rash, stupid, impractical, and tempestuous, it is by welcoming the wild that we avoid such antonyms as domesticated, indifferent, and unenthusiastic. By listening to our deep primal messages, we reclaim our birthright as expressive, dynamic, and innovative beings. As we turn toward the core, nourishing gestures, similar to a blossoming flower, feel lush within and enrich all who witness the splendor. Sustaining every gesture, our wild psoas speaks the language of the heart, and communicates what is held most dear within our bone – the felt-sense of being alive.

Signaling survival responses, this primal messenger relays disruptions and compensations that threaten our core integrity. 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.  

(excerpted from Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence)

How do we know the difference between wild and ravenous? What happens when our inner wild woman is savage?  Can we be feral and live among each other? What happens when we can not discern our inner wild? What if our inner wild woman is muted or silent?  What if fawning is our first wild impulse?    Join the conversation and the movement….

Welcome to Core Awareness™

Liz Koch is an international educator and author who seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to re-conceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Liz redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal.

Core Awareness fosters core integrity and self-efficacy as creative and expressive human beings.

Here at Core Awareness you’ll discover new ways of understanding the psoas. In addition to the blogs there is an educationally rich sourcing free for the taking. Explore my videos, articles, podcasts, interviews, FAQ’s and community links and let yourself go wild!
