The act of stopping.(by Aliki)

Walk/Stop/Run exercise.

During the exercise of choosing whether to walk, stop or run according to your impulse towards to what the room needs you to be doing, I discovered the notion of the ‘continuous stopping’.  Being aware of the transformation of the energy between running, walking or stopping, feeling present and active in the stop as well as maintaining the inner and outer focus while keeping space and group awareness are the main characteristics of my experience of that exercise. However, this time I felt the continuous activity of stopping. Not just as a one decided action but as the prolongation of the action of stopping while being stopped. As if you ‘stop all the time when you are in the stilleness of the stop’.  Being active without being physically active. The brain seemed to be involved in a kind of triggering of the decision of of stopping continuously while having already stopped. There was a constant movement in the stillness a pulsation and also a strong connection with what had existed before the stop and what would follow the stop. However, without conscious thinking but as a line of pulsing energy between the states. So, time was working on a completely different plane.
