We often think of movement as something we need for our physical well-being, and while that is true, we often miss the deeper mind-body connection that occurs when we move. In 2014, I published a post called A Philosophy of Walking: Living Deeply, where I quoted philosopher and writer Gros stating that “to walk is to experience the real.”

Our bodies experience.

Julia Cameron writes in her book The Right to Write:

“We store memories in our bodies. We store passion and heartache. We store joy, moments of transcendent peace.”

Our bodies store.

As we move, as we experience the real, our bodies store up so much more than we can fathom. I truly believe that through movement, we are given the key to access that which we store in our miraculous broken vessels.
