Embodied Research Techniques

Today I was fortunate to participate in a Labyrinth Workshop conducted by Turning Point Consultants (see http://www.Turningpointconsultants.com). This group has introduced a wide range of populations to labyrinth as a tool for completive practice and healing. Setting aside the profound personal experience I enjoyed, it reminded me of the power of labyrinth walking as a discernment technique, particularly during the interpretation phase of in-depth qualitative research. I delivered a paper on my own experience using labyrinth walking to revisit research results; this resulted in a scholarly paper that was given at the Society for Phenomenology and Human Sciences.

The paper can be accessed at ResearchGate at https://www.researchgate.net/publication/275346751_Retracing_the_Labyrinth_Applying_Phenomenology_for_Embodied_Interpretation

I appreciate conversation from other scholars who have used labyrinth or similar somatic practices for discernment and synthesis while conducting empirical research
