What a fantastic article from the Daily Maverick archives about recent research into the somatosensory cortex of the brain! (click here to read)
“Activating the somatosensory cortex may help us connect to our bodies, develop our sensitivity, sensuality and capacity to feel pleasure. That is how moving mindfully, dancing consciously and meditating with the whole body may help people regulate their emotions and connect with themselves and the world more deeply and meaningfully.”
More groundswell momentum for what I and many others know FOR SURE (not just maybe 🙂 ). These practices of somatic-movement, dance-movement and meditation are so good for us – body, mind and heart. I feel blessed to be offering these modalities for emotional and bodily well-being and flourishing.
