Prelude no. 5 – “Head Massage”

This one adds another level to our perception: tactile sensation. The trekker is asked to walk through some branches that are invading the road, both listening to the sound they produce by caressing her/his head and at the same time focusing on the friction they provoke, as a tactile event. The trekker can, at a certain point, shut her/his ears to avoid the interference of sound on the tactile experience.
