What can Movement Medicine do for Me? – September 2014
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Movement is life. The intelligence of life is alive and well and moving in you right now. Movement Medicine helps you get over any self-consciousness you might have and give yourself wholeheartedly back to the dancer inside you.
That dancer is just waiting for your permission to embody and express the totally unique, interconnected, fully embodied, full-hearted creative and awake human being you are.
Movement Medicine 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.
It will support you, whatever your age, shape or previous experience, to remember and deepen the power you have inside you to choose, to create and to love. It will remind you of what matters most to you and, step by step, give you the tools to embody and live your dreams.
What can you expect from Movement Medicine practice?
• Support to find your own free dance, liberating your body to access its own language and wisdom. • Support to find the confidence to be yourself, to communicate, to enjoy relating, giving and receiving. • A friendly, non-judgemental, welcoming atmosphere, no matter what your age, background, dance experience, culture, or appearance. • A healthier body, heart, mind and connection to your soul.
By awakening the dancer that lives inside you, by giving the reins to the part of you that rests in the beat, and by connecting your mind with your body and your body with your heart, you will discover that movement is medicine.
In the embrace of the dance, you can shatter the binds of ‘shoulds’ and ‘shouldn’ts’ that squeeze the juice from life and discover and cultivate the inherent brilliance and creativity of who you truly are. Along the way, you will make friends with yourself and find many companions to travel alongside.
Through this process, you will transform your relationship with the past, become more deeply engaged with the challenges and riches of the present, and unearth fresh inspiration to play your part in shaping the future.
Who is it 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. In short, it’s for anyone who wants to include dance as a way to freedom, awareness and fulfillment.
