What is full body consciousness
The whole body is consciously created by Kevin McEvenue integrating his many years of understanding of Alexander's technique and self-conscious exploration of life.
Consciousness of the whole body is a natural process, inviting the ability of consciousness to awaken the wisdom hidden in everyone's life.
In addition to the solid thinking, behavior, and feeling patterns developed under instinct and pressure, there are vivid wisdom and abilities buried in us, which can lead us to respond to the stress and pain of life.
The whole body consciously allows us to reconnect with the wisdom of the body, regain strength in the stagnant areas in life, and make life more complete.
One of Kevin’s most important insights can be summarized in the following sentence
"When some part of me perceives being loved, its self-healing ability will be awakened."
Principle of whole body consciousness
The body and mind are dually opposed, and we are not separated from the environment or our own experience-our life experience is in continuous interaction.
The body needs our presence to awaken the body's awareness of itself.
People have the resources it needs, their bodies are wise, and they know how to advance their lives. That is something we can't think about logically.
When two people meet, more life energy and forward momentum are opened up for both.
When your body is allowed to be itself, it has wisdom to deal with your problems. ~ET. Gendlin
Introduction to Whole Body Consciousness Process
The main point of the whole body consciousness is "earthly presence", which is a state of body consciousness and mind awakening, maintaining an open, neutral and gentle awareness of things connected to me.
When I am in a state of presence, I have a peaceful connection with the surrounding environment and life.
In this way, the body calmly relaxes, and the body also develops its awareness of itself under my invitation.
I invite my body in a state of presence and neutral self-awareness. The body will naturally move (it can be subtle internal changes or obvious body movements), and it can restart where the past stagnated.
When we abandon any form of manipulation and support and accompany the experience of the body like an earth-like presence, the sense of consciousness will take shape, and the place that was stagnant in the past will be healed and healed again, new meaning will be presented, and life will be guided. before.
