No Frills Walking, Stopping, and Running is an InterPlay form that bumps up our connection to the bigger dance. In “NO Frills” we don’t do anything but walk. We don’t even skip or wiggle or get creative with our limbs. We DO get to look at each other though. It’s all about simplicity and connection!
I put myself on “stop mode” at the Intermezzo cafe on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley and got to witness the movement all around. We can do this ANYWHERE!
Bodies have a remarkable ability to sync up.
Even now, at our computer we can sync body, mind, heart, and spirit to the images before us.
Use easy focus and welcome your whole being to synch with this virtual Walk Don’t Run (Isogabamaware) Youtube
Youtube Body Wisdom:
At the beginning the rabbit says “Lets get this over with quick, so we can go eat.”
Bear says “yeah.”
Rabbit says “Let’s go.”
Most of the rest of the lyrics say “isogabamaware” which is almost like the proverb haste makes waste.
On the grass they’re talking about relaxing and going slow. Rushing is bad.
After the song the rabbit says “perfect.”
We can practice No Frills in everyday movement. Here’s the question. Is it 1) a relief? 2) boring? 3) a way to heighten connection? 4) all of the above? Practice it like you would sitting meditation and you’ll be in sync with your world. Who knows where that will take you.
