I started my business, Laurie Burton Training, over thirty years ago. It was and is still based on these words from a letter written by choreographer Martha Graham to her friend and fellow choreographer, Agnes de Mille.
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost – the world will not have it. ” ~ Martha Graham
Please look at these words closely. Are you aware of your vitality – the vital “You” and your experience of being alive? I assume that most of us are born with an innate awareness of our vitality. We’re living and breathing and moving about, after all. Our lifelong job is to develop a deeper connection and relationship with our vitality and incorporate it as one of our basic personality traits. Vitality supplies the power and energy in the way we live. Isn’t it a part of all living things?
