Learner Expectation


Tools of Physical Orientation provide a way to assess, describe, and plan for the physical amplification of our communication. There are two aspects of the physical experience we need to consider anytime we select a torso orientation for an interaction. Degrees of power and degrees of vulnerability: the two go hand-in-hand. Navigating that dichotomy is what Line Focus and Physical Orientation are all about.
