Find a person to pair up with for this practice.
One person is the Mover.
The other person is the Witness.
The Mover's task is to move without judgement, from a place of authenticity, keeping their eyes closed.
The Witness's task is to witness the Mover, to hold them with a warm, attentive regard for the duration of their moving.
Before beginning the tasks, the Witness asks the Mover: "How would you like me to see you?"
The Mover responds from a space of intuition—whether playful, deep, or scary, any answer is correct. For example, "I want you to see me as a bird flying in the sky." Or, "I want you to see me as though I'm your big brother." 
The Witness responds with any questions or clarifications.
Set a timer for 7 minutes.
When you are finished, immediately trade roles and redo the practice.
Once both partners have done both roles, engage in a reflective discussion for 3-5 minutes.
