'Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World and it will one day return there.’ from ‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho.
So many feelings and sensations are traveling through the body during a day. Some are echoes from past experiences that left an imprint in the heart, others are ripples on the surface that we hardly notice.
This weekend we listen closely to the whispers of the heart, and we explore how it speaks through the body. With hands and hips and feet, we find expressions for all the different imprints and ripples. Some of these dances are exciting to discover, others uncomfortable. As in our daily life. The dance floor will be a safe container where we welcome, express and release all the different feelings with compassion.
When the heart is allowed to work its alchemy, we discover that we can transmute our pain into peace, our grief into joy, and our anger into serenity. The heart can only come to our aid if we become fully present with what we are experiencing. We discover that the flip side of psychological pain is personal growth -- and that our pain is simply our healing wanting to break through. From the ‘Alchemy of the Heart’ by ‘Michael Brown”.
