"To how many things are you giving attention to? When your attention stays in one place does the nature of it change, or the thing given attention to change? If your attention travels, how does it travel? Does that invoke a rhythm, a pathway? How is your body responding, is it going away, towards, somewhere else, or does it become still in relation? How is that felt in the body?"

"What is the difference between ‘being the author’ and ‘being the text’, ‘I am the writer’ and ‘this is what is written’? Are movements: it does, I do, in correlation to a linguistic structure and a mode of perceiving: form, content, logic, and so meaning?"

"What can be a non-violent relation? Three actions: one you notice, two you give attention, three you let go. What occurs then? What and where are you invited to? How do you work together? How, do you work with the impulses you receive? Do you react, copy, or respond?"

"What is the dialogue that the body is experiencing in a conversation? How does the body respond to the act of listening? What do you listen to? What is the bodily experience of listening? How do you listen to a form? Do you place the attention outside of yourself or inside?"

Raz Mantell, Lena Klink & Jin Lee

"How can the other bodies and the environment be the gravitational frame to yourself? What is the dynamic nature of your (de)attractions and tensions? How does that information disjoint the personal truth? What about its potentiality?"
