Second Unitarian Church
656 West Barry Avenue, Chicago
with Faculty member Jo Hardy
Evolutionary Presence is a Movement Medicine Dance Weekend that promises sweat, wild and tender dances, laughter and sweet challenging moments. Jo creates a safe space for all ages, backgrounds, dance experiences, cultures, appearances and physical conditions to explore freedom of movement and connection with others.
We will practice rooting deeply into our body and heart and opening into Presence in each movement moment as an evolutionary act that supports us to step through and beyond the wounds of inner and outer persecution, victimization and addiction, into a landscape of compassion, gratitude, forgiveness and a deep capacity to be with the moment as it is.
We are alive at a time of great speed, deep divisions, alienation and polarization. The resulting disconnection from the natural unity of our body, heart and mind can leave us cut off from our roots and disconnected from our capacity to connect to our self, each other and the wider web of life.
A profound longing is growing in many of us to widen our perspective and open beyond perceived limitations into the Now of deep Evolutionary Presence.
Participants will learn a set of practical tools with which they can practice at home and apply to their daily lives such as:
- Awakening the Dancer
- Activating your Circle, strengthen the integrity of your boundaries – expanding and contracting to enable authentic and fruitful relationship
- Tree of Life Practice” grounding and cultivation of presence in body, heart, mind.
- Dancing the Elements” expand your capacity to articulate, express and befriend your emotions by connecting to the Elements: Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether.
- Creating an Embodied Practical Practice, focus your intentions and wishes for blossoming of Spring and the year ahead.
