Central themes in body ecology

Abstract : Body ecology is based on philosophies of awakening and consciousness. These immersers into consciousness favour transcendental meditation and reflexivity in action through physical practices of consciousness. Although we might distinguish these techniques, the holistic context of each can cause confusion because the action on one part of the body would immediately be related to that of other parts. Only the subject in his or her physical, real-life experience can establish this correspondence, making efficient perceptions of health unverifiable but not improbable, although we do know that yogic meditation is able to modify the levels of intellectual activity. By causing a shift from a postural hyper-consciousness to a liberating consciousness, these emersive techniques are based on an awareness of these more or less deliberate techniques.
