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.
“Whenwe dance, we go beyond thought and beyond our individuality to becomeone in the divine ecstasy. This is the essence of the trance danceexperience.”
Ourbrains are hardwired for trance. Many of our ancestors have accessedstates of trance as a way of asking for inspiration, guidance orhealing. It can bring ecstatic awareness and experiences that extendbeyond the physical senses and the cognitive mind. The gates to ourinner knowing and intuitive mind can open. Deep healing can occur inaltered 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.
Inthis workshop we will move within the 5Rhythms®maps to anchor into our bodies, so that we can then open our heartsand minds to moments of ecstatic trance. Live drummers will supportus on our journey.
