About the event
Your life through authentic Movement | Awareness | Connection.
A beautiful session of Awareness, connection and movement within self through a free flowing movement practice based in Neo-Reichian character structure, developmental psychology and psychoanalytic theory, and influenced by 5 Rhythms, conscious dance and authentic movement.
A joyful and exciting exploration of what it is to be in a body, moving in response to inner awareness and outer connectedness, we move through the waves with the most magnificent playlist. We explore the use of mindful body awareness, somatic attunement and empathic reflection in ways which can assist healing, self-development and personal growth.
The cycle within the session takes us through – sensing, grounding, expressing, releasing, connecting and completing, and is an embodied exploration of early development where we first discover ourselves through the sound of conscious music, self-guided movement/dance and non-verbal interaction. Working with movement is key to the effectiveness of the practice as so much of our early history is beyond words – either pre-verbal or unconscious, that it is best accessed non-verbally, through Movement. Neuroscience shows how important this process is in the creation of our sense of self, and how early body memories form the template for our adult selves – including our strengths and weaknesses, our sensitivities and gifts. Conscious movement also has the potential to create an ecstatic or non-ordinary group experience where the transpersonal becomes vividly present and transformative.
Aside from the escatic joy we feel when we are in movement, this Dance of Awareness allows us to revisit this early body history, to celebrate the embodied patterns that make us unique, and to discover new ways of unfolding into being, all in a joyful, embodied and self-regulated state. As we move and breathe together, we open more fully to self-awareness and a wider consciousness of our place in the world.
So.... are you ready to dance?
