As human beings it is vital for our own health and quality of life that we practice self-care of the mind, of the body, and of the soul, so to sustain the ups and downs or the ebb and flow of the journey of life. The power of body play alleviates stress, guides mental focus, and brings the play practitioner into a state of movement meditation through what I call, ‘joy replenishment’. When a person is experiencing joy through movement, there is a state of release and replenishment that the play practitioner experiences, which serves as a powerful self-care practice. Thus, body play is a powerful self-care practice for all human beings. -C.S.
