Blog

For my latest posts, please see the titles in the right sidebar!

I have been writing a blog at various speeds and increments since 2008. I started HERE, with a series of posts about my book What a Body Knows (2009).

In 2009, I migrated to Psychology Today (and this site), and continued with a long series of farm tales surrounding the publication of my book Family Planting in 2011.

Now you will find a mix of posts about dance, movement, family, farming, as well as responses to other books, articles, and events.

Here are some fan favorites:

To Dance is a Radical Act

 Part Two: To Dance is (More than Just) A Radical Act

Did Humans Evolve to Dance?

Emotional Habits: The Key to Addiction

The Meaning of Milk

Enjoy!

    Obvious question: how do the brains develop in persons born with physical or neurological challenging conditions that inhibit or prevent dance(movement)?

      It helps to think about the brain as a capacity for remembering movement patterns. Any bodily self makes its own brain, by virtue of the movements it makes. These bodily movements include the movement of our senses as well as our limbs. Insofar as a person is able to breathe and her heart, she is moving, and her movements build a brain. The brain will develop and unfold along its own genetic potentials, in response to the stimuli provided by what the bodily self’s own movements make perceptible and possible. Thanks for your question!
