The foundation of Physical Intelligence (PQ) is the relationship between personality and the body. It takes Will to change old habits that no longer serve us. On automatic pilot, the impulse to take action flows automatically into action and we repeat old patterns. We can expand our range of options by exploring alternative behavior patterns (of different Enneagram styles) through movement. This trains the body’s neuron pathways in a way that gives us easier access to alternative behavior. At the choice point, with mindfulness and PQ training, it becomes easier to break the chain, engage the will, and make positive change.
