Excerpted from Bodymind, by Ken Dychtwald:

This powerful image, and the feelings that I experienced when I was able to capture its meaning, are the closest I can come to presenting my own conception of “grounding.” This word has become quite popular lately and has taken on a variety of meanings. For me it simply refers to the recognition that the earth is the body from which I have evolved and from which I draw support and stability. My primary contact with the earth comes through my feet and legs, which are my physical contacts with the earth and my psychological foundation. As my body relates to the earth and its gravitational pull, so do I relate to my own sense of psychological stability, as manifested in my ability to be secure and relaxed when I am still, or centered and flexible when I am in motion.
