Through physical movement, this activity connects people to different energies found in nature.
This activity stimulates embodied learning that is somatic rather than intellectual. The dynamic forces of nature have always been a great source of emotional inspiration and the element of water epitomizes a vast range of energies from which we can learn. In this method, participants are asked to embody three different faces of water: a lake, a small creek, and a large river. Participants walk around the space expressing the spirit and the feelings of each body of water and the room becomes a combination of different energies that intertwine and communicate silently.
Images of water, either posted in the room or on ppt slides.
