5RTA| February Teacher Spotlight

On the dance floor my pain body has shown up like a cloak, or a sense that I am swimming in thick mud; it’s upset me for no good reason, had me hide and avoid contact. It separates me. It gives the illusion of hurting, but it’s not really pain, it is inertia. In emotional inertia, I’m not feeling.
