Did you know that it is easier to smile than it is to frown?  

Try it!

Happy, sad

  • Check out the muscles in your face as you smile and as you frown.
  • Notice the different experience of the two.  One is uplifting and one is draining.
  • Which posture is familiar to you?
  • Look in a mirror  to see if you are smiling because if your little self only frowned growing up, you will think you are smiling but others will see a frown!

Now from a somatic perspective smile and frown again, however, notice your inner sensations.

  • Which one creates and expands breathe and which one makes it difficult to breathe?
  • Which one lifts your spirits up and brings you into a more upright posture and which one drops your spirit with your body sinking or collapsing?
  • Now imagine facing this smile and this frown in conversation and  how you would interpret it and react to it.

Now practice smiling and frowning at others and notice their reactions.

Emotions in self:

Exercise and develop face muscles and behavior!

Emotions in communication:

Develop connection or disconnection!

Emotions in environment:

Create a cultural experience!


At Inside our focus is on self-awareness and empowerment through somatic learning to nurture deeper intelligence of  when one is in a state of  connected (being presence) or disconnected (fight, flight or fight) by understanding cause of ones own reactions.  Pivotal point of re-balancing.  This includes perception, movement posture,  sensations (sometimes called emotions) and environmental causes.

How do you learn? Where do your emotions and thoughts come from?

#1.  You are borne into an environment

This is how a culture is formed!  

#2.  You have the INHERENT ability to learn INDEPENDENTLY stimulated and shaped by your environment

First learning is inspired through movement! 

If your environment is safe, open and free your thoughts, emotions, movements and  behavior will reflect these qualities.  You will likely be more flexible in your actions.  However if your environment is a prison filled with hate and poverty your thoughts and behavior will reflect these qualities!  You will likely be more conservative and restricted in your actions.

The good news is you never stop learning!  You have the ability to change your own conditions through awareness techniques and skill building that will create the environment for your own future generations!  Change the future by shifting the past, now in conscious presence.

Make a difference.  It begins with you!  

Why?  836996

To go beyond the imposed constraints and false emotional realities,  

To support a healthier culture that cares for themselves, others and the planet equally.  

To live as though values matter, 

By speaking your values creating autonomy

and valuing others values equally creating interdependence!  

To use gravity effectively to attain balance, consider your bones as the structure of support in the design of your body, and values as the structure of support in your relationships.
