Pedagogical Principles
and Methodology

Embodied Practice® is a disciplined inquiry into conscious, effortless and creative functioning in all areas of living. The inquiry is through direct bodily experience of action, sensation and feeling.

 

The pedagogical principle and methodology of Embodied Practice® are based on Autopoiesis: the notion that living systems are capable of continually and dynamically adapting and changing themselves in the face of external conditions. Embodied Practice® recognizes the person as a unified conscious organism inclusive of all aspects of self: body, voice, spirit, soul, psyche, intellect, mind, emotion and creativity. The major tools of the practice are inclusive of movement, voice, awareness, conscious attention, and the articulation of experience in verbal and/or symbolic/creative form. The practical methodologies of Embodied Practice® are the disciplines of Syntonics® and Authentic Movement.                                    .
