Food for thought Communicating without words

"The gesture is the thing truly expressive of the individual - as we think so will we act."
-- Martha Graham


Every movement and non-movement we make is a form of communication.

How do you communicate fear, withdrawal, avoidance, shutting down, disagreeing, and an uncaring attitude?

If you aren't sure, others can probably tell you. Begin to pay attention to what your eyes and arms and facial expressions communicate. Our body language speaks louder than our words.


"An avoidance of true communication is tantamount to a relinquishment of my self-being; if I withdraw from it I am betraying not only the other but myself."

I don't know if I'm following this - is the top section suggesting we disguise our emotions by moderating our body language with the second paragraph advocating one should avoid doing that ? i.e. displaying 'true communication' by allowing apparently-negative attributes mentioned to be viewed by others? confused

I read it as saying no matter how you might try to disguise your emotions you can not do this because your body language will give you away anyway.
