Put on Your Red Shoes and Dance the Blues

Following on her last video for Integral Chicks, Nicole goes deeper into the felt experience of what happens in her unique embodiment practice, Kosmic Pulse. Movement practice gives us a chance, amongst many other things, to notice our breathing, to relate to our environment through our physical form, to be with the heat and fire of our body and emotions, and to bring ourselves continually back to the present moment, the only one we actually have to move in. How can you possibly “talk“ about what goes on in a practice like that? Listen to her words as they dance you into reverie, while imagining the last time you engaged your form.

…And, as if that weren’t enough, Dustin and Nicole also break down the pitfalls of exclusively engaging either an ascending or descending practice path. Would you believe that you can actually integrate both streams at the same time through a movement practice? A truly integral feat! Inspired? We are! Now get out and move!
