Gianni Ferrario’s method works because it is based on a very simple principle:
If our bodies are made to enact a positive routine, then our minds will follow suit:
the motion creates emotion
Knowledge rarely turns into energy unless it is immediately associated with our emotions, thus becoming an inner experience:
emotion → inner experience → knowledge → energy
The benefits of his approach include:
- Using the universal language of laughter, humour and singing to trigger a regenerating response and give vent to creative resources;
- Making it easier for people to relate to each other, by acting on the ‘vital sap’ of their deep interpersonal feelings;
- Opening up new communication channels;
- Creating empathy by removing barriers;
- Helping people to accept each other, whilst respecting their individual identities;
