Coming to quiet is crucial for us in the modern world, so we can come into the present, relating to myself and my surroundings simultaneously. Exploring ourselves and our use is a living process.
When I come from quiet, coordinated poised action comes spontaneously out of intention, in complete relationship to myself and my environment. Then my use becomes freer, more alive, more real, and I can find my comfortable space with others, neither invading nor being invaded by them, able to meet their eyes with confidence and without fear.
This is crucial in a world which is increasingly set up to avoid human contact (communicating by cell phone or Facebook only) or be afraid of each other (you might be an ISIS member!)
We will explore coming fully present and conscious, with mind in the brain, being fully present throughout my body, yet also totally present to the room. Then we will take this into working on each other, keeping our space without interfering or invading. We will explore face to face contact without being drawn in, or going into social smiling.
