Spirals & Edges

A one day Dance of Awareness workshop - with Tim Brown & Clare Osbond
Saturday 6th Nov 2021, 11am - 5.30pm

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.

 

Spirals & Edges works with the pulse of contact – opening and closing, inbreath and outbreath, filling and emptying, yin and yang. How do I shape myself as I encounter the world? When do I express myself and when do I protect myself? Where do I find sanctuary and what happens as I approach the edge of my comfort zone? So many stories are held in our willingness or reluctance to push, to reach, to make contact; or to yield, to release, to withdraw. As we spiral in towards ourselves, and out towards others, we may find edges and boundaries that serve us or restrict us. We can choose to feel those edges – they are often the fertile margins where growth can start to happen.

 

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.
