“The first moment you enter the room, and everyone is seated. Before the first word is said you know who’s contracted, who’s open, who’s scared, who’s excited, who’s resisting, who’s closed …  The body language tells you the truth. The body movements allow you to notice what is going on inside the storyteller. Beyond the story told in words.”  Shachar Caspi
