Excerpt

Because the education of movement transforms the whole person, it embraces the ethics and aesthetics as well as the mechanics of activily.

This book is designed to meet a broad spectrum of readers, from those who are looking over the field with intellectual detachment to those who wish to guide themselves through a shift in their habitual movement patterns.

We have often resorted to narrative in order to keep the experiential nature of this work apparent and to suggest the possibility for personal application. The characters, including Thomas the teacher, are fictional; their stories have been knitted from our encounters in movement teaching.
