Participants are invited to actively come into an awareness of their bodily experiences. Spontaneous expression and playfulness are encouraged in the form of automatic writing, mark-making and scribbling, gestures, postures and pedestrian movement. Thus, participants have the opportunity to express emotions through their own physicality, visual references, poetic language or sounds, precluding the need for complex verbal articulation. Verbal sharing is also encouraged.
Examples – Spontaneous movement, gesture or posture, spontaneous mark-making, automatic writing, moving in response to the felt (somatic) sense, verbal sharing in pairs or the group.
