We use sensing exercises and simple movement tasks to help us wake up the body and inhabit it more fully. We give ourselves time to breathe, relax, stretch and move dynamically, as we follow the body's own natural cycles of movement and rest. We focus on following, rather than inhibiting movement, as it unfolds from moment to moment.
Through the integration of movement and verbal sharing, the practice becomes an open-ended enquiry in to what is arising in the present. This enables us to become conscious of how we sabotage, judge and push ourselves, restricting our aliveness and authenticity.
It is difficult to move freely from our feelings, and embody the ongoing changes in our energy, without the development of movement vocabulary. These practices will help you develop your vocabulary and trust your own unique way of moving, which is essential to having the freedom to express yourself in movement.
Contact and Creativity
As you develop confidence and trust in your own way of moving and expressing yourself, this naturally leads to moving with others. Allowing your vulnerability and uniqueness, whilst noticing the resistances and familiar patterns that arise, is part of the creative process.
Moving together can be playful, liberating and healing. It can deepen our experience of intimacy with ourselves, each other, and with that which is unseen in the subtler
realms of Being.
