Judy Gantz has expanded the application of Body Knowledge, refining how people can learn to cultivate Body Knowledge to further Self-awareness.
Gantz has four stages of psychophysical learning that deepen Embodiment. The four stages are: 1) awareness of the body, sensations, and perception focused on the subjective inner life to generate a "felt-sense;" 2) moving and observing movements using the principles and terminology of Laban Movement Analysis; 3) recognizing how another's movement may trigger a response in the observer; 4) establishing a mode of inquiry based on kinesthetic empathy with another person who is moving. * Moore, CL. &Yamamoto, K.
