Women's Full Moon Wave
A Dance of Awareness workshop - with Clare Osbond
Saturday 24th July 2021, 7pm - 9.30pm
At last... welcome back! So who wants to dance?
If that's you, then here is a special Full Moon Dance of Awareness workshop for women. Women who may have a curiosity to let what is already there, already happening, begin to unfold. After a brief warm-up, we will have an opening circle, followed by a Wave as we go through the DoA cycle of sensing, grounding, expressing, releasing, connecting and completing, and finally a closing circle which is an opportunity to share if you are moved to do so.
We begin in sensing, a space to surrender to your being - simply being with yourself and experiencing yourself directly. Then, in grounding we allow the ground and the breath to support us, and we become aware of our physicality, the form that we take. There is a boundary between what is me and what is not-me; reflected in how I make contact with the world around me. From our ground, we can come to know ourselves, to feel our feelings - this is expressing, and we can choose whether and how to express ourselves. This is who I am in my passion and my power. This is who I am when I take up space. In this place of charged yet contained energy, we can trust the impulse to release - release what we may be holding on to that no longer serves us. And then the freedom of connecting that comes with that. To connect in all that I am - both outwards to others, and inwards to our true nature.
There will be some structure for introducing some of the key themes underlying DoA, but largely this is an opportunity to let the music take you through the experience of exploring your early embodiment through dance, movement and awareness.
Numbers will be limited to 15 women, assuming this is acceptable within government restrictions at the time. We will not be inviting any physical contact, but please be aware that as we move through the space, there will ineviably be times when you are at close proximity to another mover.
This workshop is open to all women, regardless of previous movement experience. If you want to discuss anything by phone, please email Clare to arrange a time to call.
