Reverb 10: Body Integration.

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body?

Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?

~ Patrick Reynolds

There was a moment. Many of them, actually. They have usually come with meditation. This seems to be the space I create for going inside and releasing the body, releasing the mind, and engaging the spirit. My spirit. I don’t need meditation when I consciously engage my spirit.

There are breaths. Deep ones. Lots of them. My spirit knows when she is being summoned.

When she is engaged, there is nothing but the present moment. I still see and hear what’s going on around me. A man and a woman having a conversation in a coffee shop. Cars driving by on the street outside. A bicyclist slowing to a stop for a red light. The slow limp of an old man with a backpack on his left shoulder and ebony cane in his right hand. The steam of a latte machine creating flavors otherwise untapped. Music piping through speakers, dulling the sound of conversation flowing throughout.

I am still in my body, I still feel my hands typing, my feet moving to the beat of the music, my legs crossed, my eyes focused, my mind hanging, working, moving, grooving.

I am one.

I am me.

A cohesive me, alive and present.
