 Essensuality “Hard times require furious relaxation”

We life in chaotic times. A big dance with the unknown. Our society (our system) reacts by feeding the fear. This fear goes directly into the body and tenses up our system.The more our physical system is tensed up the harder it is to perceive vital information that is important for our well being. We start to loose connection with our senses and our mind goes into overdrive. Creating more physical tension.It is time to break this vicious circle and return to an effortless effort trusting our own inner navigation.Returning to the power of our senses. Our senses are directly connected to our neuro system and therefore of vital importance on how we perceive the world. Let’s relax, dance and soften our shell ,so we can flow through life with trust and ease.

In this waves/heartbeat workshop we focus on relaxing our body and let our senses inspire our dance to discover various ways to calm our nervous system and to (re)load our vitalityA perfect playful Spring Workshop in which we combine dance, meditation and massage.Are you curious how softness, lightness, taste and touch can be part of your dance and life?#Then join us in this beautiful workshop.

EARTH - Elemental Rhythms - Residential Intensive (can be booked individually)

Rhossili - 25 Apr 2019 to 28 Apr 2019
Bernadette Ryder

The first of four residential workshops for those who

  • Have fallen in love with the dancing path
  • Are passionate about the natural world
  • Want to open to the wisdom holding & healing of the elements.

Elemental Rhythms is a series of four workshops, each devoted to the teachings of one of the elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air.

The workshops can be done individually, but they will also build on each other in a progressive sequence – each element being a gateway to a deeper connection with our world, our-selves, and our potential.

In Workshop 1- EARTH, we are working particularly with Flowing, the body, the physical, and the feminine – teaching the power of being:

Most of us long to deepen into fundamental connection with the earth mother, who birthed our physical nature, and who nourishes the sensual experience of life. When we actively engage with earth energy, we step through a portal into the mysteries of the physical.

In this dimension, we can deepen into the teachings of flowing, the body, and the feminine principle. We can connect with, and make sense of, primary patternings in our persona which have emerged through our experience of being mothered. This opens the opportunity both to heal core woundings and to evolve beyond them, as we learn and grow into the power of being.

In our chosen residential setting – with its rolling moorland, secluded beaches and windswept cliffs – the elements are so powerfully present that opening to their potency, and letting them guide and inspire our work is both easy and obvious.

Add to the stunning location: a supportive community of dedicated dancers, nourishing whole earth food by the celebrated Café Momo, an exceptionally experienced and committed teacher, and we have all the ingredients needed to facilitate deep healing and nourishing work

The greatest gift of the 5 Rhythms is that, when engaged with deeply and fully, it takes us on a journey of progressive expansion towards our full potential as creative, loving beings. Catalytic in nature, it works to free the body, open the heart, still the mind and awaken consciousness. Ultimately, this entirely physical practice is a spiritual experience.

(See website for details of the full series, and for participant feedback from The Deepening, the previous workshop in this location.)
