Roots & Wings

A one day Dance of Awareness workshop - with Tim Brown & Clare Osbond
Saturday 25th Sept 2021, 12pm - 6.30pm

For over 15 years Dance of Awareness workshops have provided a joyful and exciting exploration of what it is to be in a body, to move from inner awareness and outer connectedness. Through the DoA cycle – sensing, grounding, expressing, releasing, connecting and completing – we welcome the body memories of our formative years into consciousness. The cycle allows us to revisit our early body history, to celebrate the embodied patterns that make us unique, and discover new ways of being who we are. As we move and breathe together, we open more fully to self-awareness and a wider consciousness of our place in the world.


Roots & Wings. The successive phases of the DoA cycle evoke what it was like to arrive in the world, to be supported, to adventure out, to develop autonomy, to find my place, to become ‘me’. We begin life searching for safety, comfort and pleasure. We respond to the world around us. As we do, we come into contact. And we make contact through touch and movement. This is how we first come to know ourselves – and ourselves in relation to each other. Through our growing repertoire of movement patterns the experience of self takes shape. I shape the world and the world shapes, and reshapes, me. As a tree deepens its roots, I discover my support in the world. As a bird spreads its wings, I am moved up and out into the world.


Whether you’re new to Dance of Awareness, or part of our regular moving community, these workshops are an opportunity to spend a whole day of immersion in the DoA cycle. We move together, mixing structured process with free-flowing expression, individual self-exploration with pair and group exploration. Give your body the chance to take you on a journey of self-awareness and discovery.
