Description

Sacred Union – Dancing with Yin and Yang

From classic romantic fiction to popular culture we are bombarded with the notion that somewhere out there -heterosexual, gay or bi - a Mr and Mrs Right is waiting to awaken us with a kiss. Once we find them of course, most of us have a serious lack of skills for healthy relationship and we all know what happens from there in contemporary culture. Beltane celebrates the divine union of masculine and feminine and of the fertility that this merger brings, while alchemists have long referred to the mystery of The Sacred Marriage. This dance workshop will shine the light of Moving Medicine as a way to explore those inner qualities we refer to as feminine and masculine, or what the Chinese refer to as yin and yang. Plumbing our inner depths we discover the capacity to receive self, which, if we give it our attention, then sprouts into the ability to receive others in ways that can begin to free them of our projected and often ridiculous fantasies, whether they are partners, relatives or friends. Listening deeply from a place of being rooted in self, we begin to hear the drum beat of our own heart in a way that allows us to take action in healthy rooted ways rather than as any kind of search to fill the inner emptiness. Life becomes abundantly fertile. This is the real romance. It begins at home. I like to take such journeys accompanied by great tunes. Join me. :-)

FAQS - ABOUT MOVEMENT MEDICINE

What is Movement Medicine?

MOVEMENT: noun – activity, impulse, a change or development

MEDICINE: noun – in tribal societies, a curative power

MOVEMENT MEDICINE is a body based movement meditation practice that will reconnect you to the wisdom of living from the heart, the joy of knowing who you are and the satisfaction of making your unique contribution to life.

MOVEMENT MEDICINE will deepen your connection to yourself, your creativity and the
integrity and guidance of your own soul.

MOVEMENT MEDICINE is for everyone who wants to wake up, discover more of their creative potential, study shamanism in a down-to-earth way, discover ecstasy without drugs, find community in a way that doesn’t require giving up individuality and find the courage to make your own unique contribution. In short, it’s for anyone who wants to include conscious dance as a way to freedom, mindfulness, awareness and fulfilment.

Re-Connection

MOVEMENT MEDICINE is shamanic medicine for our times. It gives us direct, embodied experience of the dance of life that’s going on inside us and all round us. As a species, we face enormous challenges right now that we see as arising from the story of separation; separation between body and spirit, between individuals and nations,
between the human world and the web of life we are part of and depend upon. Simply put, Movement Medicine reconnects us, deepening our capacity for empathy and compassionate being and action.

Since pre-history, dance, song and ritual-making have played an important role in the human community. Movement Medicine is a contemporary expression of this inheritance. It marries ancient and modern wisdom, and supports you to experience the transformative power of your own potential in co-creative community.
