If you are interested in understanding what moves us, you should tune in and listen to "We are a Body" with Karin Gurtner and Haley Winter from How's the Pressure.

Notable Quotes from Karin:
“Our body is not a hierarchical system in which the brain is the dictator that determines what is going on underneath. There is free speech. Every system interacts and influences every other system and we interact with our environment and our environment shapes us.”
“By consciously training we can improve our kinesthetic sense, which enhances trust in my bodies ability to heal itself.”
“The organ of Kinesthesia is facia.”
“For me feeling encompasses both sensation and emotion. A sensation is the feeling of something, an emotion is how I feel about it.”
