Rearticulating the potentials of change?
Power of imagination/mind, potential of change, transformation, personal or societal, has somehow always been in the field of my interest. By bringing fine and focused attention to the small details of how we move, stand, sit, breath, or even feel, can already make a change in our perception. Playing around, slowing down, paying attention, experimenting, re-connecting inside –out can give us full range of new options which can be integrated into bigger picture and action. Action with possibly less force and effort, more care, more empathy and joy.
