Feel the body – Eutonia
Lie down and relax. Put your attention into any body part you want. Here you can go from top to bottom through the body or choose to go intuitively into certain body parts.
Feel yourself in this part of the body and stay in it. Then touch it with a tiny movement from within or from outside by using a finger stick, stone, etc.
Experience the quality of this body part, let images arise, perceive blockades consciously and solve them in a playful manner.
Background & Impact:
Eutonie (Greek for “good pressure”) is a technique developed by Gerda Alexander‘s body-oriented method that increases the awareness of one’s body. In euthonic empathy a positive experience of your own body is felt and you may be made sensible to use your own body. This will generally also help with being attentive to other people and the environment.
