I just got back from my annual AASECT conference. This year I had the privilege of presenting on my favorite
topics — movement and mindfulness, and how they relate to sensuality and sexuality. I came back fully motivated and inspired to continue this work.
It is my intention for people to feel more embodied and enjoy their bodies. One way of doing this is to be curious about how our bodies communicate with us. Our bodies are always speaking through pings, pangs, and other tidbits. One way have I learned to listen to my body is through slowing down and movement. Letting my body take the lead and moving in the way that it most desires.
As young children most of us moved to sound and music in a natural innate way. It was not about performance or perfectionism. It was about being fully present and in the moment. When I invite a client to practice a specific movement, it is an invitation to reengaged and remember his/her natural flow. It serves as a reminder of the body’s innate wisdom. Movement helps us tune in to ourselves and tune out what does not serve anymore.
Our bodies are incredibly powerful and wise. When we slow down and move in the way that it wants, we are in the flow of life and our bodies are ready to whisper what serves our highest good.
