Betsy and I share our response to Part 3 of our series.

Betsy shares details about how [Jung's] personality types (styles) can be explored by playing with the movement patterns (Swing, Hang, Thrust, Shape).

I share how challenges in my life have been moved forward in positive directions by playing in the every day.

Join us as a member of our Psyche-Soma Dynamics Group where you'll find details about our upcoming November workshops & 4-day course. http://ow.ly/QxkEo

Coming up! Join us at 9PDT/12 EDT as we talk with Artist Nick Sousanis on the Power of Visuals (& Comics) on Learning & Creativity.

Apparently Nick's first word was 'Batman'. [His brother, 8 years older was into comics!]

See you soon! http://bit.ly/cipsousanis
We'll explore what happens when we bring more visual images and visual thinking -- including comics -- into teaching, learning and creativity. Our guest is comics artist and educator Nick Sousanis, who received a doctorate in education from Teachers College, Columbia University, where he wrote and drew his dissertation entirely in comic book form. His dissertation has been published as the book, Unflattening.

"To understand dreams and reclaim the practice of imagination, we must look to the master teachers; our inner children and the children around us. When very young, children know how to go to magic kingdoms without paying for tickets, because they are at home in the imagination and live close to their dreams.”
~Robert Moss

In Part 3 of our series Betsy and I explore Hang, Swing, Shape, and Thrust. 

We'll follow-up with a response in a forthcoming video!

The Coordination Patterns and their Dynamics are functioning at the (neuromuscular) movement-mind-body link.  They create our style; the way we  do things.  They are a key to unlocking our deepest core self, both physically and mentally. AND we can play with our psyche-soma dynamics in our movements, our childhood stories, myths, films; our gardens and nature, dreams, our relationships, and much more...

Join the Psyche-Soma Dynamics Facebook group and explore with us! https://www.facebook.com/groups/127029444106063/
