If we include the body in the pedagogical work, the mind can open up in different directions. More body-experience means more awareness of one’s own self, the other person/working partner, the group. We experience that the individual is part of a bigger enviroment and affects the rhythm, the energy of the working partner and the group. Its a mirror of the society, where we can learn playfully how to move in a collective.
This raises questions:
How do I position myself in the group?
How do individual and collective influence each other?
How we want to live together: In individualization and competition or in teamwork, mutual support, cooperation? How we can reach that?
Dealing with these questions and reflecting on them strengthens the social fabric. It is not about understanding, but about experiencing with all senses.
