Sense and Sense-Ability: Developing Greater Interoception through Uniting our Thinking, Feeling and Sensing in Action.
One of the most crucial parts of optimal physical functioning is learning to sense one’s self more fully and accurately when doing anything. Having the ability to think in sensations allows us to imagine new possibilities and find new ways of doing things that are more comfortable, functional and successful. As Robert says, “we must sense before making sense,” but simply sensing, in its own right, not only brings greater awareness and choice to any situation but primes the system to be in a state of continuous improvement.
