Movement that is Life
Learning that is movement
This “movement” isn’t just the mechanical motion of action. This movement introduces us to life. It is the sensory and motor circuits that feed cognition, and form identity and perception (Scientific America Mind, 2011).
The program’s primary focus is to support and enrich learning regardless of condition, mental or physical. Movement is used to teach the roots of behavior or sensorimotor systems. The secondary focus is to introduce the fundamental nature hidden from the mind of how we learn. The unknowing that rests in the caverns of living is our “body ownership.”
Children Get IT!
Children aren’t culturally conditioned, yet, so they are still innocence enough to be open to possibilities compulsively craving in the exuberance of muscular works.
What is termed the Sensory Body (SB),” or body ownership, is easily accessible for a child. Just point their attention inward, and in the movement of sensation, they understand their feelings. The SB sense is the physical imitation of perception, and though subtle children still feel it.
We bridge mind and body child learns the authentic nature of the Sensory Body.
- To raise the level, depth, and breadth of public and research dialogue in the awareness of core issues in children’s life challenges.
- To explore movement research to advance cognitive research.
- Through sensorimotor reeducation and discovery of body ownership children develop a clearer and deeper sense of the physical patterns influencing their perceptions.
Lessons teach children to come from a dual attention, or sense of physical presence to “out there.”
- Combining sensorimotor and neuromuscular re-education (based on the Feldenkrais Method) movement games introduce the child to one self. The movements are not just for exercise, flexibility or weight lost this movement is about how the body works for the brain. Checking inside to their physical sensations, and children clarify how to communicate and listen to their peers and caretakers. Physical inclinations lay out a carpet of active enunciations to the child’s way of understanding. The best part of the process is if used daily the child continues to improve in character and physical health.
- Give participants the experience of embodied cognition, and the character shaping perception becomes conscious. The more someone experiences this oneness between mind and body, the more engaged and effective the learner. Concepts of ambition, self-regulation and responsibility are woven into each lesson. As self-awareness expands so does the fueling of creativity and critical thinking. Respect for oneself and others are embraced by a sense of the mind connected to the heart.
- Lessons are alive and organic. Spontaneous and organic adaption unfolds moment-to-moment with circumstances and reactions. Awareness to the participants’ physical sensations are compared to what the mind thinks it feels. This experience is not an intellectual process of understanding but serves as a window to the self and one’s relationship to others.
