Today I’m reminded of Stanley Kunitz’s wonderful poem “The Layers”.
It’s worth reading the whole poem, following the journey that leads him to words that came to him in a dream.
“Live in the layers,
not on the litter.”
When I work with the practice of Sensory Awareness, I feel layers, layers in my eyelids, eyeballs, skin, both on the outside and the inside.
Yesterday I was led in a session to sense what happens when I come from sitting to standing. It’s quite a journey as I explore that transition from sitting to standing, and then the return from standing to sitting, or is it a return, or simply a unification?
