Mindful Movement: The Evolution of the Somatic
Arts and Conscious Action
In this section, my aim is to present possible ways of processing, analyzing, and understanding the researcher's somatic
and affective experiences in an autoethnographic research design.
Physiology of mastitis and factors affecting somatic
also has a therapeutic application in dance, by coordinating movement, breathing and mental conditioning to reduce body tension and increase efficiency and safety.
In this way, there are physical and somatic
triggers that remind the student physically, emotionally, and intellectually, about the holistic meaning of fortitude.
We can also observe that these composers' sound-triggered recollections present as primarily somatic
: their descriptions of the sounds as "cold," "feely, like touch," "white," and "full of pain" suggest that their long-buried memories of trauma are somehow more embodied than cognitively remembered, stored more in the blood and tissue of torso and limb or the deep, elderly smell-regions of the cerebellum than in the swifter, more evolved, and efficiently streamlined neural pathways of the cortex.
Instead, Tolstoy's theory of infection is marshaled largely because it supports Robinson's larger assumption about what he calls "the somatics
of literature." Robinson's analysis yields an unfamiliar Tolstoy, one who does not recall immediately the figure emerging from Gorky's reminiscence.
Gary: Certainly my understanding is that somatics
has now become an integral part of dance training and physical discovery.
The consistency of a vision encompassing the physiological and transcendental mighty seem inconsistent, but note that social scientists characteristically regard emotions, even religious ones, to have a somatic
components (for example Kemper, Theodore, Thoits, and Hartley).
The author also became educated in equine somatics
which offers horses release from muscle tension just as yoga helps people relax.
But Shakespeare's Entrails also reminds us how profoundly Hillman's scholarship has shaped our discussions of early modern somatics
Where once the much-travelled pro looked to be consigned to a retirement spent in pain and depression, now he can be found in the Epsom yard of the talented trainer Jim Boyle, passing on the benefits of Equine Hanna Somatics
to a decent but rather pottery individual named Alfie Tupper.
