The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they have found it.

(Terry Pratchett)

‘'Inward eye'’, William Wordsworth's phrasing, may dwell in “Embodied Practice”®. My progressive understanding begins briefly in Calgary during a Syntonics® weekend of potential physical alignment within me (1984). At the SFU Voice Intensive (May-June 1995) the training appears to be morphing: I observe ‘me’ through physical, mental and emotional awarenesses. Later, I join and embrace the western community Masterclass (1998-2001), initially tempted by a Doris Lessing phrase that Judith uses in her correspondence – ‘'grace of the inevitable’'. I revisit in 2004, later in 2011, feeling a sense of coming home to support, curiosity, openness, irritation, familiarity and change. However, during years of experientially and observationally being “within and without’, the work continues everyday remaining indelible in my own aspiring to choose precise words spoken and unspoken, recognize perceptions, re-find alignments, discover self and open wide like the petals of a mature Carousel tulip in the warmth.
