Weather Sensing: Warm-up
Pick a small indoor or outdoor site and research it by focusing on one sense at a time:
Using your mouth, first notice its taste as it is, then taste the air. Notice the subtle ways the taste changes over time. Explore your mouth‘s capacity to seek information and initiate movement.
Gather scents from plants, floor, air, materials, clothes. Breathe, smelling on the inhale and exhale.
Feel textures of wood, metal, leaves, concrete, fabric, air, skin. Focus both on sensitive areas of the body (fingertips, eyelids) and less sensitive ones (back, legs, etc.), differentiating moments of discrete touch from moving as one continuous touch.
Listen to sounds close, distant, very distant. Distinguish between distinct sounds and then widen your focus to hear a wash of sound. Notice any vibrations in your body that you can hear through skin and bones.
See under closed lids, lids cracked open, open eyes. See textures. See while naming what you observe; see while not naming what you observe. Use site as motivation for movement.
Write and share your thoughts and questions out loud or with another.
