"Body-in-movement intelligence" - a new dimension to change


planet moving through dark to light; a metaphor for change is not still, and the facilitation of change requires movement too

Change is not still, so the facilitation of change requires movement too

We know that sometimes we just need to move, and something shifts.


In our work, we move in the room, step faster, slower, turn, or stop.


You move your head, arms, or hands. You mirror a gesture or a posture, and a connection or a deeper understanding emerges.


The body moves. You move. And you learn.


The dance of the body

The dance of the body can make visible our patterns and our stories.


In a group setting, or one to one, how does your body want to move, if you allowed its intelligence to lead?


A question mark - inviting questions on how the dance of the body can make visible our patterns and stories

Do you move, or are you still? Do you come to centre, or move to the edge? Are you close, or are you far? What sensations arise? Where in the body?


Your "body-in-movement intelligence" can bring a fresh embodied, and relational awareness.


You allow a fresh sensitivity to sensation, to noticing what comes up. A new felt sense can enrich your mindful awareness of how you are in the world, and how you relate to others.

"A felt sense is usually not just there. It must form. You have to know how to let it form by attending inside your body. When it comes, it is at first unclear, fuzzy. By certain steps it can come into focus and also change. (Eugene Gendlin, 1981).

This practised way of being present in the world supports you to embody, recognise and offer different creative responses in your movement, and in your words.

a lily pond - a metaphor for how practising body-in-movement intelligence can help us to access a deeper and more open receptivity to what is present.

You can access a deeper and more open receptivity to what is present.


Leaning in, we activate connection and curiosity.


Slowing down we invite our clients or teams to notice, feel and sense, to ask "what else?", "what's missing?", or "what's more?"


Stepping forward, we can take our space as the trusted guide, and stepping back, we can hold the learning space in which our clients can step in and try things out.


Is this at the heart of what it is to bring an open and embodied presence to our work?
