Illuminating Darkness, Light & Shadow
A time for curiosity and investigation, in this 2 1/2-hour monthly mini-workshop series we will dance the essential 5Rhythms®, Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness®, exploring and finding our connection to Presence.
Our fall 2017 series will delve into the radiance of darkness, its vast possibilities and the potential that comes from bringing our awareness to it, being present to it, embracing it, not as our enemy but as a source for brilliant discovery, dancing ourselves into the light that always follows darkness and shines all the brighter in the presence of darkness.
This is a morning moving meditation for deepening and awakening.
“When we dance, we go beyond thought and beyond our individuality to become one in the divine ecstasy. This is the essence of the trance dance experience.”
Our brains are hardwired for trance. Many of our ancestors have accessed states of trance as a way of asking for inspiration, guidance or healing. It can bring ecstatic awareness and experiences that extend beyond the physical senses and the cognitive mind. The gates to our inner knowing and intuitive mind can open. Deep healing can occur in altered states of consciousness.
Inour culture today many of us are experiencing a lack of ecstasy thatwe might try to fill with other means. The dancing path is anon-going journey from inertia to ecstatic trance. To be in a state ofecstasy means to be fully alive.
In this workshop we will move within the 5Rhythms®maps to anchor into our bodies, so that we can then open our hearts and minds to moments of ecstatic trance. Live drummers will support us on our journey.
