In this workshop, we will explore, with our whole body and with our amazing creativity of movement, this feeling of aliveness and well-being in our heart. This ability to meet the ups and downs of our life with authenticity and perspective. This practice is not about manufacturing positive experiences but about becoming aware of those that are already present. It is about opening to the good. There is excitement in our fear, passion in our anger, rejuvenation in our sadness. There are so many flavors of joy – sometimes it delights us and uplifts us and connects us; sometimes we can sit still in contentment; sometimes we can flow with ease; sometimes we can scream “I am alive” sometimes it is bittersweet; sometimes is contagious; sometimes it is a sense of grace that takes a shape of gratitude. Using our human super powers of mindfulness and nonjudgmental awareness we can simply take things as they are – and even bask in the joys of that feeling.
“People say that what we’re all seeking in life is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think we’re seeking the rapture, the joy, of being alive.”Joseph Campbell

In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
