Do you remember the innocence and joy of being a child, free and unfettered in the aliveness of your body? Those moments, infused with a purity of experience, before we were draped in cultural expectations , others opinions, challenges and even shame.
For many our minds have tried to bend our bodies to an idealized or false image of who we think we should be. Surrounded by judgements, we’ve distanced ourselves from sensation, divorced ourselves from play, and climbed up into the tower of our minds.
But our bodies remember.
Our bodies still know the simple and essential pleasure of moving through time and space. Within each of us resides the ancient joy and innocent playfulness of embodiment.
Winky Wheeler and I we will guide you through this six week series that invites you to step out of your known narrative and into your body. Folded into each session is time for guided movement experiences, working with emotion and imagination, journaling, and connecting with each other.
Within this circle you’ll revive your aliveness through sensation, grounding and dynamic movement possibilities that wait in each moment. Through our connection to ourselves and each other, our capacity to listen for our inner wisdom is enhanced. Growing and stretching spills into our everyday, enriching our lives and bringing home the power of loving ourselves just as we are.
We invite you to step down from the tower of your mind and into the temple of your body. Whatever your life journey is, your body and the unique dance that is your birthright waits for you.
You’d be a perfect fit if you’d like to:
-- find more joy in your body!
-- love the idea of moving and dance, but perhaps have been reluctant to sign up for a class
-- are a seasoned mover and dancer, and would enjoy more connection with a like minded community of women and some time to deepen and strengthen your practice
-- crave more connection with women, to support and be supported by others in circle
-- expand your mindfulness practice to include this form of living, breathing, moving meditation -- pay more attention to the needs/longings of your heart and soul
-- have some skepticism about the power of being a part of an online group…we’d love to show you the depth of connection that is possible
-- get out of your head and tune in to your body
-- be more present and connected to this moment, embodied
What you’ll get:
-- six 1.5 hour sessions with practical tools to take into your life
-- deeper awareness of moving, dance, and meditation…and how to use these in your life
-- a greater sense of aliveness in your body, more fully embodied in your world
-- connection with a great group of diverse women
-- fun and joy
Gift yourself with spending this time every week just focused on you.
Your heart, soul and body will say thank you.
