An Ongoing Group
At its simplest, life is energy, moving through form.
And in our essence, so are we.
The dance reminds us, and helps to reconnect us to this underlying truth.
Our practice is to keep coming back to movement and aliveness.
Throughout the journey of this Ongoing Group we will return again and again to the simplicity of the dance ~ not in order to accomplish anything, but as an end in itself.
When we are stuck, or something needs our attention, we will give it movement.
When there is space, we will practice offering ourselves to movement itself ~ allowing ourselves to be absorbed, body, heart, mind and soul, by whatever dances unfold.
The more we get to know our particularities, the more we heal the uncomfortable edges in ourselves, the less personal everything becomes, and the more room there is for a direct, simpler experience of life ~ present, spacious, and delightful.
Let’s drop together deep into our practice, and be danced by the freedom and poetry that are waiting for us there.
This Ongoing Group will meet six times over six weekends, beginning in November and ending in April 2020.
Each time we meet we'll dance the 5 rhythms, with lots of space and permission to go where the dance takes us. The intention is to trust the practice, and to hold a container together for profound presence in movement.
Dancing at a deep level through the year with the same group of companions is both powerful and healing. There is space for trust and friendship to grow, and challenge to be real and true. We will have time for words to share our process, for witnessing, and for individual support; and lots and lots of time to dance.
Between meetings there will be space to integrate and practice what we find, as we ground the experiences we have back in our daily lives.
Six months of dance, simplicity, friendship, and support ~ a space to be present with our deepest selves, with kindness, discipline, and joy!
