Earth, fire, water, air ~ the essential elements of all creation. For centuries they’ve provided a fundamental map of how things are. Moving with their energies we remind ourselves that, despite our sophistication, we too are part of the natural order. By aligning with their qualities, we recover a sense of ourselves as a natural process ~ powerful, beautiful, and simple: our feet on the ground, fire in our bellies, fluid in our sensibility, our dreams touching the sky.
Madeira is a special place, where the elements are intimately present ~ the sun shines, the ocean is all around, the breezes sweet, and the hills are lush with growth. In this natural beauty we’ll dance the 5 Rhythms and explore how each of the elements lives in us, and how they can move through us. We’ll look for a graceful balance of their energies, and the wisdom that comes from resting in their holding.
Staying in the old-world charm of a traditional quinta, with delicious home-cooking, we will create a supportive community for healing work. In the warmth of the Madeiran sun, we’ll relax, breathe deep, and find the time and space to soften and expand. And we’ll move in search of the rich, deep aliveness that comes from embodying each of the elements, as we drop ever deeper into the dance.
