Transformation ~ Moving beyond our familiar patterns
We all have our difficulties - things, people, circumstances we find it harder to keep company..
Perhaps you’ve lived long enough to realise that these are your difficulties - not someone else’s doing, or persistent bad luck..
So then the question is: what are we going to do about it?
We can try to manage our situation, the people we spend time with, even ourselves, in an effort to avoid what’s uncomfortable.
We can look for ways to console ourselves, and make things more bearable.
Or finally we can choose to attend to the roots of the thing - the patterns that trouble us, the things we do to cause ripples in the water, the self-inflicted discomfort that keeps us from living more fully and free.
On this journey, we’ll bring an embodied awareness to the patterns of our wounded selves. We’ll find the courage and the persistence to go to the heart of what’s difficult, and see if we can’t shift the whole basis of our relationship with what we find.
We’ll dance with kindness and with honesty in search of the release of lasting transformation. And welcome the peace that such a shift would bring.
This Ongoing Group will meet six times over six weekends, beginning in November and ending in April 2019.
Each time we meet we will focus on the different ways we complicate life. We’ll dance the 5 rhythms in search of a more spacious relationship to the patterns that trouble us, and to shift fundamentally our perspective on the way we inhabit our lives. The work will be challenging, but potentially life-changing.
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 have learnt, as we walk the changes we make back out into the world.
Six months of dance, transformation, friendship, and support ~ a chance truly to renew ourselves, with kindness, discipline, and joy!
