This book is situated at the intersection of somatics and politics - the place where bodily perception meets social engagement. Over the course of the first two decades of the twenty-first century, Americans have experienced an unprecedented number of national tragedies, political crises, economic downturns, and natural catastrophes. From the sudden and horrific collapse of the World Trade Center towers to the economic recession, from the cyclical plunges in housing values to the periodic crashes of the stock market, from the fallen bodies of mass shootings and collapsing buildings to the current dismantling of environmental policies, we live in a state of almost constant anxiety about things falling apart, and our bodies reflect that. This book argues that gravity - both the physical experience of one\'s weight because of the earth\'s pull, and the more metaphorical implications of being grounded in the midst of ongoing turmoil in the world around us - can provide an important balance to the social, political, and economic unpredictability that surrounds us these days. Throughout the chapters, the reader is introduced to a series of movement practices based in Contact Improvisation and related somatic practices that can help cultivate a responsive body - one that is capable of resistance as well as resilience, helping us find a more embodied way of being present in this unstable world.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Falling -- Disorientation -- Suspension -- Gravity -- Resilience -- Connection.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/5224861247<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1040244681<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"How to land : finding ground in an unstable world<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1066742024<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5600565<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1093\/oso\/9780190873677.001.0001<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1941539<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780190873691<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780190873714<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1066742024<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
