This is a Dance of Awareness afternoon workshop for all women. Women who 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, as we allow the ground and the breath to support us, we become aware of our physicality, the form that we take. There is a boundary between what is me and what is not-me which is reflected in how I make contact with the world around me. With this grounding, we come to know ourselves, to feel our feelings - and can express ourselves. This is who I am - in my passion and my power. 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 connection that comes with that. To connect in all that I am - both outwards to others, and inwards to my 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 own early embodiment through dance, movement and awareness .
The group is facilitated by Clare Osbond (Dance Movement Psychotherapist). This workshop is open to all women, regardless of previous movement experience. If you want to discuss anything, call (01273 271408) or email Clare.
