Birth can be the initiation into the next phase of the archetypal life of a women. It can also be a wounding. What can we learn from the physiological, psychological, emotional, and social fields of birth. How can this inform our creative projects and our personal development? How does this inform dancing the wave? How does dancing the wave help us heal wounds, and complete our initiation into the phase of motherhood? Where does mother fall on the 5Rhythms women's map? (Please note - this does not have to mean birthing of a baby - it can be a creative project, or birthing the more nurturing, nourishing 'mother' energy).
Only now is the feminine way of being returning to our awareness.
In this workshop we'll be reminded of our cyclic nature,
of the ebbs and flows of our creativity and of our spiralling unfolding pathway of our lives. We’ll dance and move together, to embody and reconnect with our physicality and to witness and honour this with our sisters.
Natalie has woven new maps for women to dance through their lunar/menstrual energies; their birthing/creative energies; and their empowerment/archetypal life energies and life cycles. Through her studies with Alexandra Pope (The Red School), Rhea Dempsey (Birthing Wisdom) and working with the archetypal stories of Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes (Women Who Run with the Wolves), Natalie has absorbed the current principles of female wisdom, and interlaced these with the simple, and yet potent and catalysing map of Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms dance. Together these new maps form a carefully curated, sensitively synthesised, and richly multi-layered tapestry that form the basis for Natalie's women's moving medicine work. Dancing through, and embodying these maps, nurtures our well-being, our creativity and expression, and re-connects us to our essence and life-force.
