The Baseworks Meta videos offer a unique educational format to make visible and articulate concepts that lack common terminology in everyday language. These videos serve as a valuable tool for grasping instructional cues and movement objectives, facilitating a smoother learning experience in the Practice Sessions. They are available to all Platform subscribers.
The Baseworks Meta videos explain the specifics of attention allocation and goal-setting in Baseworks, visualizing the invisible, allowing one to become aware of things that are normally executed beyond awareness. These videos provide a shortcut to understanding the finer and not so immediately obvious details in the Baseworks Method.
Here is one example of the Baseworks Meta:
Baseworks Meta: Background and Intention
"Meta means about the thing itself. It’s seeing the thing from a higher perspective instead of from within the thing, like being self-aware." (From Urban Dictionary, by pcheolsu, posted on February 22, 2017)
Movement and perceptual skills are developed through repetition. However, the efficacy of learning depends on what you are paying attention to while performing a task, and also how you plan the execution of any movement.
In Baseworks, we have specific guidelines for attention allocation and goal-setting for movements. We use movements that you would normally not perform in your daily life or most other movement practices. This allows you to become aware of things that normally are executed beyond awareness.
Although all the things described in the Baseworks Meta videos can be experientially discovered simply through continuous and committed physical practice according to our method, the Baseworks Meta videos act as a shortcut, providing a source of insight that then can be explored through repetition.
The Baseworks Meta videos will help you get a better grasp of what to do during the practice sessions, familiarize you with Baseworks-specific vocabulary, help visualize many aspects of the Baseworks movement vocabulary, and help understand our method from an analytical perspective.
