Its an interesting topic and how I dance with that depends on how I interpret the word ‘drives’ I suppose. I could talk about Freuds aggressive and sexual impulses in drive theory, but I would rather address one of my main drives - as sharing knowledge of embodied practice towards development, which can result in personal and societal empowerment, communication and healing, as we focus on the integrated body and mind.
If I use Laban Movement Analysis, I consider my main drive in life to be the action drive:
My view is that my body provides the vessel and vitality to physically impact and intra-act with the world, it is my body that is the starting point for me to become through movement, I guess I think of it in terms of the material body as primary, if we have any essence at all.
