Bringing the Body Into Finance
Practice is an intentional activity that engages our senses with mental, emotional, physical and spiritual awareness. Through practice we gain insight in the areas of life we choose to improve by seeing new ways and making new moves. In Short, practice resolves problems and emerges possibilities. Engaging a practice, we are aware of both the “doing” and the “seeing”.
The doing is the activity. Practice is a verb – so there is an “ing” – we are practicing. Which means movement, body movement and mental movement. Journaling, running, meditating, hugging, whistling, bathing, lifting weights, reading – endless pages of activities. While the doing is interesting, and important, it is the seeing that gives fire to the practice. Fire burns away obstacles and clears the way for us to make progress on what matters most to us. Seeing is the how we are engaged in the activity and the insights that arise.
