The concept of EMBODIMENT seen through Charlie Brown's eyes...
"This is my depressed stance.
When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand...
The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better.
If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed you've got to stand like this."
© Charles M. Schulz
The concept of EMBODIMENT is not new. In essence, it is an old buddhist concept that is being scientifically explored: The concept that body and mind are one, like two sides of the same coin. We all know this: Whenever we feel tense or stressed, our body will feel and show it by the way it moves or hurts. Likewise, when we can open our mind and let go of harmful thinking, our body tensions, aches and pains can go as well. When we feel good and blessed in our body, when we align our bones in their natural state, our posture will change. We can grow back to our original height, to a balanced body posture and meet the world at eye level. Our changed posture will naturally have impact on our state of mind. And interestingly, the way we feel in our bodies will be reflected back on us by the outside world.
Each and every CANTIENICA®-training will be a chance for your body to grow back into its natural state. If you start using the CANTIENICA®-principles in your daily life, it will powerfully change the way you stand, sit, move and even sleep.
