Identity is felt as a familiar holding of tension as the body. Often, we don't even know when we are holding ourselves in a particular contraction. Only when there are degrees of relaxation that awareness lets us know the contrast between what is familiar and what is comfortable as a felt sensation. Letting go is not a cognitive idea. It is a somatic experience.
My name is Kathrina Peterson and I invite you to participate in this forum around awareness and movement. I have been a Buddhist meditator for over 20 years and have been exploring in depth what it means to develop as a human being: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This is my passion, both on a personal and a professional level. I welcome you to share thoughts around what it means to be awake.
