Re: Article: Symbols, Metaphors, Change by "The Mirror"

Thank you, Mary. Pretty much what I hope for is to create questions that get folks thinking...
like you with entering into shomenuchi, much of what I've learned/accomplished on the mat was done first "in the body" and only later could I ponder and begin to articulate it. I think the more we exercise that particular "muscle" too (heheheh--a metaphor), the easier it gets for the somatic feeling and the conscious articulation to communicate in less time and eventually start working together at the same time. Which I suppose would be the goal of the type of training I was describing....see now you are making me think as I write! thank you!
