Loving Movement

We are often told to find what we do well and are passionate about -if we can follow this to make a career and life out of, we will be successful and happy. As much as I'm able -this is what I have done all my life.

So, let's begin with a little background. -I was that kid, yes that kid who couldn't ever sit still. Back when I was in school, it was still common to ask overly active students to go stand in the hall. I think it was supposed to be some kind of punitive measure but as I recall when I was asked to go stand in the hall, my answer was "gladly" at least I can move a little bit. I was always in motion or at least thinking about it. I can still remember my mother pleading with me to walk up the stairs instead of bounding up them and would I please slow down....and this was when I was in my 30's.

I was also that kid who everyone said marched to the beat of a different drummer. Back then, this was not always to my advantage but over time my curiosity and ability to look at things from different perspectives has proven to be an asset. I like to think outside the box...well, truth be told I have difficulty thinking in the box. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Curiosity is my mentor and learning is one of my favorite pass times.

More than 2 decades later it is still the same and I have applied my curiosity to exploring the mind/body/relationships field and the language of movement and sensing. How do we inhabit this body of ours and how does movement or lack of movement affect our body, mind, emotions as well as our relationships? Good questions to ponder.

As a Massage Therapist/Movement Educator who has been practicing for 20 years, you spend a lot of time seeing how people relate to their bodies, their health, and their wellness. You also have a lot of time to think about these things. And since I always like to be a bit different it puts me in contact with so many gifted thinkers in the bio/psycho/social field of study. There is just so much we are learning in this area and often it seems difficult to get this information out in a way that is practical and useful. And that's the area that I like to work in. Sharing knowledge and skills that will help make people's lives better and changing the world through sensing, movement and learning!

I look forward to sharing this journey with you. ~Paul
