Staying With the Level of Sensation

By including the subtle bodily sensations in our awareness and expression, we can share with more power, presence, and discover more truth. These sensations often contain the least interpretation and therefore can surprise us with connections outside of rational analysis. This is about alive embodied sensations and emotions—not ‘dry’ body sensation sharing.

To get a feel for this, notice the act of your breathing. Can you sense the belly moving in and out? Can you feel the air brushing against the skin beneath your nostrils? What else do you notice in relation to me, the writer, and the content, any sense of emotional reaction or feelings of opening or tension?
