ChildhoodNature in Motion: The Ground for Learning

This chapter, co-authored by Ann Moradian and somatics expert Martha Eddy, "aims to establish embodied movement as both the physical and metaphysical grounds for learning, including aesthetic learning in an ecological context. We advocate the moving body as critical to celebrating and deepening childhood nature... We suggest that developing a lifelong somatic relationship with our bodies in motion, a relation in which we bring our attention to our lived (psychosensory-motor) experience, is a powerful way to reclaim that wholeness which allows us to care and connect for self and others, to feel a sense of place and belonging, and to self-regulate our behavior for optimal interaction with our world..."
