With Arlyn Zones and Carol Kress
Throughout our lives, our hands have a privileged and profound place in our experience and our sense of self. We begin early in infancy, exploring and discovering ourselves through touch. As we develop we use our hands and arms to discover our external environment and learn to act upon it. For these larger actions in the world the inter-relationships between our hands, arms, shoulders, spine all need to be clarified and optimized. And for powerful forces to be transmitted through these bones we need to learn to initiate movement from the pelvis.
The slightest reduction of effort in the hands can bring a lightness to our entire self. It’s a good place for us to begin. We can then move on to explore and optimize the use of the arms and discover some fascinating connections to other parts of ourselves along the way.
