The Embodied Learning website was set up to talk with others interested in exploring embodied learning. That is, different ways of learning, especially how learning can be a physical, body experience and not just a brain or cognitive experience.
It is well recognised we learn through various modalities, including through experience, reflection and research. Experiential learning has, so far, been seen simply learning by practice. But now researchers are showing that true mastery of any skills comes from many, many repetitions. Thus allowing the skill to become embodied. The process can be accelerated by awareness and conscious practise.
Once I found that learning through the body was a legitimate way of learning, I have been exploring its use in executive education and, improving presence and performance in all aspects of life. In fact, I have come to realise that presence is nothing without the body.
