The head, shoulders, arms, lungs, heart sit above. The hips and legs sit under it. It's powerful, nurturing, warm, tender.
I kind of like this aerial view. Missing are the guts....so you can see what's going on muscularly. Here's what I like...I like how snuggled the spine is in muscle and connective tissue. Usually when we see a picture of the spine it is all by itself...just bones...and it looks so fragile. I like the cross section on your left of the oblique and transverse abdominal muscles. You can see the different directions the fibers lie so we can move in all sorts of directions.
A reminder...this a map of one particular view. It is not the living breathing territory. We still need to dig in and sense they way our body/mind moves and feels and digests (food and sensory impressions). But a drawing like this can give as a place to begin exploration. And exploration is what I love.
Thanks to Jason Crandell for posting this drawing on his Facebook page.
ps: Here's a mudra for the middle! Enjoy!
