Dancing with the Heart of the World

We could all do with a little more fluidity, strength and creativity to be more effective in the task of landing the heart of what truly matters to us in our day-to-day lives. In order to bring the essence of who we are to our lives so that we can deepen and share the gifts we all carry, we must take time to remember the dreams that inspire us and uncover the purpose that guides us. It seems that as a species, we have created a situation that threatens our very survival. We have been living in what the Achuar people in the Ecuadorian Amazon call a trance. This trance, fuelled by decades of unconscious consumption and disconnection to the natural world, has put the knowledge that we are all interconnected strands in the complex and delicate balance of life on earth to sleep.

We are in need of a new story and we each have a role to play in its creation. In this Dancing with The Heart of the World intensive, we will support you through a blend of focused Movement Medicine practice and the Pachamama Alliance Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, to remember and deepen your love for life. We will look deeply into where we are, individually and collectively.

This workshop is another opportunity to take your place as an empowered, informed and creative human being, who is capable of working together for a better present and future for all our relations. Returning to the still point, we will follow the energy of the season and invite the silent wisdom we hold in our cells to speak to us of Winter dreams. We will plant the seeds of our dreams in the fertile ground of the dance and let the dancer translate them into movement, art and an all night dancing ritual in celebration of life on earth. We will embody our prayers for ourselves, our relations and the wider web to which we belong.
