“Escucha a tu corazón. Lo sabe todo, porque viene del Alma del Mundo y un día volverá allí”. “El Alquimista”, Paulo Coelho.

Son muchos los sentimientos y sensaciones que recorren nuestro cuerpo durante el día. Algunos son ecos de experiencias pasadas que dejaron una huella en el corazón, otros son ondas en la superficie que apenas notamos. 

En este taller, escucharemos atentamente los susurros del corazón y exploraremos cómo habla a través del cuerpo. Con las manos, las caderas y los pies, encontramos expresión para todas las diferentes huellas y ondulaciones. Algunas de estas danzas son emocionantes de descubrir, otras son incómodas. Sin embargo, entrar y expresar estos sentimientos en compañía de otros te liberará. 

La pista de baile será un contenedor seguro en el que podrás soltar y seguir adelante con compasión. Y ahí es donde está el oro. Compasión.

Utilizaremos los 5Ritmos y los 5 Elementos como guías e inspiración en nuestro viaje de baile.

“Cuando se permite al corazón trabajar su alquimia, descubrimos que podemos transmutar nuestro dolor en paz, nuestra pena en alegría y nuestra ira en serenidad. El corazón sólo puede acudir en nuestra ayuda si nos hacemos plenamente presentes en lo que estamos viviendo. Descubrimos que la otra cara del dolor psicológico es el crecimiento personal, y que nuestro dolor no es más que nuestra curación queriendo abrirse paso.” “La Alquimia del Corazón”, Michael Brown.

"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, other s 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. However; to enter and express these feelings in the company of others will set you free. 

Then the dance floor will be a safe container where you can release and move on with compassion. And that is where the gold is. Compassion.

We will use 5Rhythms & 5Elements as guides and inspiration on our dancing journey.

"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)
