The Headless Horseman

When the white man first came to North America, the Indians thought the white men were crazy because "they thought with their heads and not with their hearts." Somewhere there must have been a mutant chromosome that effected this difference in people, the difference of relating to the physical world from our hearts or our heads. Some small divergence probably appeared at the time the upper brain evolved to join the more primal lower brain.

This is the exercise. It gives an interesting perspective to imagine that we are headless. Just to go through the day without our head. See how we relate to the sky, to the trees, to people with just our heart. See how more gathered together we are become, how grounded, how silent.
