"Where are our feelings? Are they in a safe-deposit box at Chase Manhattan Bank? Unfortunately not; they're in the body, and it is in the body that we can experience them and through the body that we can express them." Gabrielle Roth
Heartbeat map is offering us a creative, embodied way to release the past and present of our emotional energy. In the dance we are finding incredible ways to get to know ourselves. Some of us have a difficultly letting the emotions in, to feel them, to stay alone with them, to let them in our hearts and trust their flow. For some of us the challenge is to let our emotions out, to let them be expressed from heart to heart, with the support of a grounded and moving body, to let them connect us with others. And then naturally it comes the time to let our emotions go, to stop rolling in them, to stop talking over and over about them, to release them.
"Feelings are the language of our heart, but we have silenced them. We talk about our feelings, we think about our feelings, but when we actually feel them we get so scared we immediately shove them back into the deepest chambers of our hearts. Yet none of us want to be numb. We long to connect. We long to be real. We long to be intimate." Gabrielle Roth
WORKSHOP LEVEL DETAILS
In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
