In sensory awareness, we do a lot of tapping, tapping ourselves awake. We may tap ourselves or another. Either way is pleasurable when the tapping is mindful and present. Lee did something different this time, at least new to me. She had us pause at times during tapping. Pause. When I was leaning over being tapped on my back and the pause came, I could feel reverberations all through me. I could absorb. The tides come in and the tides go out for a reason. Well, yes, there is the moon, but also, there is a living response to stimulation. We respond to change, and sometimes in the pause, our own response is the gift, the acknowledging we live.
