The Human Potential Movement: Forms of Body/Movement/Nonverbal Experiencing.
Caldwell, Stratton F.
A social, humanistic movement has emerged which focuses on the desire of many affluent and advantaged citizens for personal, interpersonal, transpersonal, and organizational growth. It has been termed the "Human Potential Movement." Growth centers, which emphasize the integrated totality of the person, have developed all over the United States and throughout the world during the 1960s and 1970s. Within these centers there has been a rediscovery of the body as central to one's unified being and becoming. A unique development among growth centers is the emergence of the Esalen Sports Center, which explores the potential of athletic experiences for eliciting higher levels of awareness. There are many growth centers, colleges, and universities offering body, movement, and nonverbal oriented experiences that can be utilized by physical educators and others as they seek new and different program experiences.
