1] Can one have Space Effort in Inner Space? (I think not, but...)
2] If one says yes to the above, what would NOT having Space Effort in Inner Space look like and how would that determination be made?
3] What is the difference between the Basic Body Action of “Addressing” and Space Effort?
4] How does the expression of Ambient Space come about, or, of what is the expression of Ambient Space composed? (This question may have been addressed, if not answered, in previous posts concerning "projection" or maybe even, "of what is charisma composed?".)
I will be interested in any and all feedback on this category of Space and Motif Notation.

Hello Labanistas and Bartenieophiles,
In teaching my class, "Dance For The Ageless," (for 40 or 50 years old & up),
Being almost 79, I love your title.
I find that I must be able to refer to what I now wish to call Spatial Territories.
territories is concise, real, clear.
Laban had simply called them different kinds of space: General Space, Kinespheric Space and Inner Space.
After conferring with Charlotte Wile I have created Motif Symbols for these three Territories. My original concoction utilized a blank rectangle, and Charlotte politely informed me that that was the conventional indication for Direction. She also said that she would prefer not to use the capital 'K' as I had inside the rectangle to indicate "Kinesphere" because the 'K' was so strongly associated with "Folding to the Side."
What is different about space effort from the other efforts in Inner Space?
Can you help me with what Basic Body Action means (does that mean something that is not Shaping or Space and what does "addressing" mean.
i would love to revisit those responses. They intrigue me greatly. I studied 4 years with Barbara Brennan, who "saw" energy fields, different colors, shapes, sizes, etc. all of those AURAS ARE also for me Ambience, Charisma,
Peggy I agree it's exactly that it is the boundary
-- term territory refers to any sociographical area that an animal of a particular species consistently defends -- < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territory_(animal) >
To address Jeffrey's point, would the term "realm" versus "territory" perhaps still capture the intent or does that introduce other issues?
Hello, Peggy and Labanistas,
The new symbols make send to me. And as I read more carefully I understand that my previous comments were coming from a slightly different lens. Peggy's example of inner space makes sense to me and I am sure there are other examples of attention in inner space.

For me at least, any term that includes "sphere" indicates spatial volume. A "boundary" has a very different spatial association. Boundary can have a linear spatial representation. Boundary I associate with the container rather than the content contained within/without.
Dear Richard and Peggy,
Yes—the tactility of all the organs and bones and lymph and blood is in ‘skinisphere’. And ‘inner space’ maybe more micro with lots of space between the elemental bodies. Two words, from different disciplines, evoking different view, attitudes to the same real estate.
Here's another thought for Richard
Having been a martial artist for over 26 years, the experience of the spatial distance around my body was always strongly intertwined with Time. It was the time/ space evaluation that one needs to perceive in order to understand 'defending' itself.
