What Do You Mean By 'Natural Power & Grace'?

A question was asked:

"I've been thinking about 'grace'". 

"'Grace' (capitalized) represnts some kind of spiritual experience; 'grace' has something to do with harmoniously integrated movement."

"...what do you consider to be 'Natural Grace', is it both of these or one?"

Kelley responds -

Yes to both. I chose that word carefully to describe my approach to training. The meaning depends on the student's expectations.

I feel that the purpose of my training is to enrich all aspects of life's experience. For those on a spiritual path, the method is useful, for those who are not, still equally useful. Concepts like insight and truth are non-denominational. :) 

Our methods emphasize the ability to engage and develop the parts of the brain associated with intention, will, restraint, discipline, empathy, compassion and insight. In short, deeper awareness. The result of this process is that a person strives to behave well and in accordance with the highest standards in any context. Professional, personal, private, spiritual, physical... Whatever the context, 'grace', is apparent.

'Natural' means arising from our genetic and cultural inheritance. The work is to discover these relations for ourselves. The joy is in the expression of these relations through thought and action. Hard work results in profound insight. 'Grace' connotes dignity and composure under stress. especially when taken in context with 'power'. 'Power' is central to complete and nuanced understanding of the phrase. This is a big topic. I’ll post more.

Good question, thank you.
