Dancing at Lughnasa

Saturday August 4th 2018

11am - 1.30pm

All are welcome to join us for this Saturday morning session as we move with the solar and earth energies of the festival of Lughnasa, season of harvest and celebration.

During this session you will be invited to listen for what is arising within the body and to offer it into motion in an open and non-judgemental space. This facilitates the release of tension and stress as the body naturally moves towards balance and well-being. By allowing what arises to become visible we access our innate ability to heal and transform, shifting from fixed or stuck positions mentally, emotionally and physically into more fluid and wholehearted ways of being in our lives.

Supported with movement resources from Open Floor practice and teachings from the chakra system, we call on the dance as teacher and healer, encouraging alignment of body, mind and spirit as we pause to receive the warmth, light and abundance of this time of year.

Open Floor movement is an embodiment practice, a form of resourcing, releasing and remembering the essential self through movement, dance and meditation.

No previous experience of movement meditation or conscious dance is necessary.

Hearttimes 2018.jpg

Heart Times - Medicine for our Modern World

A 3 module closed ongoing group starting in September 2018.

*Early bird price available for bookings made by August 22nd.

Beginning at Autumn Equinox and carrying us through winter, this 3 module ongoing group is an invitation to gather, move, rest and sit in circle as we journey into the world of our own hearts. The heart centre is a doorway into a vast and powerful energy field, one that research shows is capable of changing the electromagnetic field of the Earth. It is designed to balance all of our experiences and to unify our sense of self at every level, in solitude, in relationship, in community and with Spirit.

Our greatest strength sits at the core of our vulnerability and can be tapped into when we risk opening ourselves to what arises in the moment and allowing it to be there. In the dance we meet the intelligence of the life force moving through us, we practice listening and offering what arises into motion. This helps us access our innate ability to heal and transform, encouraging us to shift from fixed or stuck positions physically, emotionally and mentally into more fluid and balanced ways of being in our lives. 

Supported by the resources of Open Floor Movement and the commitment of an ongoing circle, we will explore what it means to be a human being during these potent times. Cultivating an attitude of compassion and curiosity as we meet the shy and fierce, wild and sweet, awkward, passionate and quiet places within ourselves and each other. In the current climate of these modern times humanity needs good medicine, one that connects us to our hearts, to our essential selves and to each other. Movement meditation offers an embodied medicine, that can expand our capacity to be present, to love, to share our gifts and engage wholeheartedly with life.
