In the world, we often go through our days and our lives with our awareness focussed primarily
on our own separateness. Our minds are occupied by our individual responsibilities and ambitions; and our connection to our bodies is tenuous or inconsistent.
We rarely enjoy the feeling of being together with others; in a unified field within the flow of life.
In this workshop, our focus will be on exploring and learning how to feel and recognize the unified field of our own bodies, as we move and play within the unified filed of a group.
Through conscious movement, we’ll discover new connections between the different parts of our bodies; and learn how to move as one dancing body.
Next, we’ll learn how to expand our awareness out to the group as a whole, without losing touch with ourselves. We’ll bridge the two using our breath and expanded proprioception, allowing our attention to flow seamlessly from ourselves, to the group, and back, in a loop.
When we loop in this way, while dancing together, we create a shared field of individual expression that naturally and easily becomes a playground for connection and creative collaboration. The feeling of the unified field is palpable, inspiring and deeply nourishing.
WILD HEART DANCING
In the wilderness of our body is our wild nature and heart. Our wild nature and heart have the inborn potential to create, flourish and unfold deeper wisdom of who we really are, without labels, limits, and fears. The wild nature and heart are up against discipline, social influences, and cultural norms. We will dance and wake up both sides of the heart, get to know them, so we can let go of patterns, which no longer serve us. In the fusion of the wild and the social heart, we can give birth to greatness, deeper dances, and abundance of love.
We will use the drum and the map of the 5Rhythms to take this journey.
