"The spirit in motion heals, expands, circles in and out of the body, moving through the layers of consciousness from inertia to ecstasy. Open to the spirit, and you will be transformed." - Gabrielle Roth
We give lip service to standing in our own power… but what does that mean? One reason we find it hard to define is we rarely do it. In fact, we spend much of our time trying to avoid our emotions. In Heartbeat, we partner with our emotions, welcoming them, dancing alongside and within them. We find out what it is they want to tell us and move with and through them.
This weekend workshop explores the landscape of the heart. We explore the five major emotions through the lens of the body. Fear in flowing; Anger in staccato; Sadness in chaos; Joy in lyrical and Compassion in stillness. We explore both what our bodies know and what the emotion teaches us.
