Body Intelligence Summit 2016

Self Movement Intention

With Jon Eisman
Hosted by Lamara Heartwell

One of the innate resources of the Self is our ability to move. The movements we make both pursue and indicate our intentions. By examining carefully the subtlest of our physical impulses, we open a doorway not only into what we want and what we are doing, but into the most intimate embrace of our true Self.

In this session, we'll explore:
• A fascinating map of the nature of Self
• Tools for studying our orientations in space and our most primal movements through mindful self-study
• A framework for understanding how our impulses reveal and shape our relationship to ourselves and others
