Experience first occurs on the cellular level. Our nervous system is the recording system of our body. It records our experiences and organizes them into patterns. It can then recall the experience and modify it by integrating it with patterns of other systems and previous experiences. Our nervous system is the last to know, but, once knowing, it becomes a major control center of psychophysical processes. It can initiate the learning of new experience through creativity and play. Our nervous system underlies alertness, thought, and precision of coordination and establishes the perceptual base from which we view and interact with our internal and external worlds.
Utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind we will explore our nervous system and deepen our understandng of how how it supports different ways of being, moving, perceiving, breathing, behaving expressing and thinking.
