"If you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself." Gabrielle Roth

In this workshop we move / dance with how essential/ basic fear or the pure energetic of fear can be an ally to us by helping us to be Awake and really noticing things in situations when we need that, so that we can move with what’s happening in us and clearly feel into and sense what appropriate action is to be taken right now. That pure fear energy that keeps us awake to what we need to do in a situation, of course, isn’t always there; it can be that, to access it, we need to let the fear that we’ve held back, kept frozen, distorted or misdirected for different reasons begin to move more and work through us. Of course we’ll keep dancing our 5 rhythms practice in all this. By the end of the day, we could have moments of feeling that we own more of our own power and can enjoy our aliveness more. I’m looking forward to this day workshop which promises to be rich and probably surprising.

In this series of ten workshops we explore in movement, alternately the Waves map rhythms: Attention (Flowing), Clarity (Staccato), Adventure (Chaos), Freedom (Lyrical), and Connection (Stillness), and the Heartbeat map emotions: Awake (Fear), Upright (Anger), Release (Sadness), Relief (Joy), and Embracing (Compassion). In each workshop we go deeper with one rhythm or emotion, whilst also moving through full waves. Nancy will teach the Heartbeat workshops, Edo the Waves workshops.

This is a series of linked workshops, a connected whole, but at the same time each workshop can stand independently on its own, so you can feel free to take part in one or several, or the whole series.
