ABSTRACT

Every day in our bodies we feel pleasant or unpleasant sensations, agitation, or calm, which influence the connections we have with other people who form part of a team. Practising the ‘Biodanza’ human integration system increases the connections within a team, which is reflected in increased positivity and reduced negativity of affect as measured with the PANAS test, indicators that characterise high-performance teams according to the Meta Learning model. The body and the integrative experiences are the protagonists in this process.
