WHAT IS PHYSICALITY OF GRACE?
As I train to become an InterPlay leader, I am focusing on embodying the concepts from Phil Porter's book, Having It All, and these concepts come from the chapter, "Grace Is Physical":
We all know when we experience grace--the opposite of stress. It is acknowledging "the good" in the moment that we are feeling. This physical feeling is body data.
Then when we recognize
WHERE this physical well-being of grace occurs...
and WHAT we are doing...
and WHO is bringing us grace...
this is body knowledge.
Once we have BODY DATA and BODY KNOWLEDGE, we can practice BODY WISDOM. Yes, we can choose to increase the physicality of grace in our lives! We can make the choice to be in spaces, engage with people, and do those activities that bring us energy, peace, calm, and creativity.
FOR MY LIFE AND WORK, WHAT RESOURCES DO I NEED TO ENGAGE IN THE PHYSICALITY OF GRACE?
Great question! This C4ward March Blogathon prompt has me asking pertinent questions and is helping me clarify the direction of my life's work in seeking the physicality of grace.

To be an InterPlay leader in the Atlanta community, which would bring me grace, I need the following:
1) Training in InterPlay, which requires time, money, and teachers.
2) Once trained, I need spaces, players, collaborators to conduct InterPlay.
In addition to being an InterPlay leader, I want to be a creativity coach. Then there is my desire to continue growing as an artist who "draws from the source" and the support I need around that soulful experience.
I see now that I have a lot of body data to collect to be able to determine the resources I need to embody the physicality of grace I am seeking in my work to earn a livelihood exuberantly and easefully.
That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me. Tell me about your experience with grace. Where, when and with who do find that wonderful feeling of calm, energy, and renewal?
