An Open Floor Movement weekend workshop
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September 2016 11am - 5pm
This weekend workshop is an exploration on personal power and wholehearted living.
Many of us have learned to 'hide' or cover over vital parts of ourselves, leading to loss of energy and uncertainty in life. Movement as meditation opens the doorways to all levels of our human experience, helping us to rediscover what has been lost and to align with what matters most to us. Sometimes what we are most challenged by offers us the greatest opportunities for freedom, joy and openness to life.
Supported by the core movement principles of Open Floor practice and the healing power of dance as meditation we will call upon the wisdom of our moving bodies to practice fluidity and release restriction, giving special attention to the spine and backbone. Together we will explore what it means to 'stand tall' in our true nature, asking;
Who are we when we express freely from the heart?
How can we 'back ourselves up' or 'let go' when required?
How do we stay steady and present in a constantly changing world?
This workshop counts as pre-requisite hours towards Open Floor Teacher Training.
€130 or €110 early bird by August 20th.
