What moves you?

An interesting paper about movement as diagnosis and as process supporting tool. Take your advantage of this!

ABSTRACT: This paper, written in the time of COVID 19, is an overview of the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System (LBMS) and its usefulness in Core Energetics practice as an instrument for observation and transformation. An introduction to the overarching concepts of LBMS is provided, with an emphasis on the use of the body’s relationship to Space as an indicator of one’s state of mind. Ten movement experiences are provided as a gift to the Core Energetics community for use in personal movement practice or one-on-one client and group work. Excerpts of personal process concurrent with the writing of this work illuminate the inner thought process of the author.
