2.10.12: IMPRINT, a practice of becoming more conscious of perception through a reciprocal experience of touch. Expanding the sense of touch one can sense, listen, and see through touch.

2/10/12

This week we were working with the task of facilitating a new group of people to pay attention to and move from the heightened awareness of the skin. We were experimented with expanded one sense of perception crisscrossing with another. For example, see a person and interpret the visual information into the sense of touch by feeling the image throughout your entire container of skin. We needed to check in with the concrete language involved, so we looked up proprioception:

Proprioception

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Proprioception/ˌprpri.ɵˈsɛpʃən/ pro-pree-o-sep-shən), from Latin proprius, meaning “one’s own” and perception, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement.[1] It is distinguished from exteroception, by which we perceive the outside world, and interoception, by which we perceive pain, hunger, etc., and the movement of internal organs.
