ecology of practice

We often separate our bodies and minds. Workplace for our minds, exercise for our bodies.

Alternatively, an ecological view is that both worlds are ONE integrated system.

But, integrating MindBody practice into LIFE is not yet a common skill.

Moving Puzzles is an ecology of MindBody practices:

  • Mindfulness [Move] → moving with intent, attention and awareness
  • Obstacle games [Connect] → playing games that reveal new connections
  • Serious play [Puzzle] → objects for storytelling and complex problem solving
  • Teamwork [Team]→ integrating mindfulness, obstacle games and serious play.

Like all ecologies, the boundaries between these practices are blurred and changing. They change as we do.

what puzzlers say...

I had the opportunity to train with the MOVING puzzles, and I can confidently say it was one of the most transformative experiences of my life.

Their approach is unlike anything i’ve ever experienced in my fitness and movement practice.

"Working with Dean is so much fun - I leave every session absolutely buzzing! It's challenging, unique, and varied - that's what I love about it. No puzzle is the same - just like my everyday life. Having the freedom to create, explore and change is so powerful!"
