Living Shin

Living Shin

(p.75) Chapter 4 Living Shin
Moving Consciously

Catherine A. Schaeffer

University of Illinois Press

In this chapter, the author reflects on the ways that living Shin has enriched her work as a university professor, professional dancer, choreographer, and human being. She first talks about her history in somatic modalities of Ideokinesis, Laban, Keleman, and Hanna Somatics, along with their relation to Shin Somatics and how this work has benefited her professionally and personally. She then describes her applications of somatic knowledge to dance pedagogy, creating choreography, and the teaching and practice of yoga, healing, and wellness at Eastwest Somatics Institute. She also discusses her personal transformative somatic experiences and concludes by sharing key findings and insights that ground her in living Shin.
