OUR BIGGEST RELATIONSHIP WOWS OVER 40 YEARS OF MARRIAGE – PART 19 OF 31
We humans like to connect with our weight, to feel the impact of being fully met in our physicality and embodied presence.

Most people confine their play to games, word play or external entertainment like movies. You can generate a deep connection by creating your own forms of friendly tussling.

Slogging or playing—your choice.
