8-Week Series Beginning Thursday March 8 to April 26, 2018 7 to 9:30pm
Indigenous wisdom knows that ‘to live is to move’. To awaken from our deep slumber of disconnection with ourselves and the natural world means our bodies must be moved. Dance and music, coupled with inner journeying processes, are the oldest medicine and spiritual practice on Earth. Natural movement, unfettered by the constraints of the mind, coupled with deep relaxation are the secrets to a vibrant life, fostering healing, regeneration, resilience and creativity.
The taming of our wild, intuitive spirits has fractured the bonds of interrelationship with self, others and Nature. Spirited, conscious expression re-opens these primal interconnections. A diversity of movement expressions from subtle to dynamic prepares and opens you to receive the universal life force. This infusion of energy can activate psychic capabilities; deepen the chords of compassion, love and wisdom; awaken purpose and the energy to fulfill it; and always brings a heightened sense of attunement and interconnection with the larger Earth Community.
Primordial Journeys is an invitation to discover your body as the teacher, doctor and guide you have been waiting to meet. Movement sets you free. Alternating between ecstatic arousal and deep meditative states, you create an energetic container to journey into the mysteries of your higher Self where the transformational powers of vision and imagination run free.
Allowing your spirit to move without interference opens a space for being connected with the source of eternal wisdom and the unashamed ecstasy of feeling fully alive.
Renew & Reconnect
Held within ritual space, self-paced and intuitively centered, Primordial Journeys encourages authentic, spontaneous and imaginative exploration. The movement can be gentle or strong, evenly pulsed or polyrhythmic. It can affect a part of your body or the whole of your body. There are as many outcomes as there are ways the body can express itself. Incorporating feelings, memories, and creative impulses are welcomed elements in creating the matrix for your practice.
Each workshop includes instruction, a spectrum of movement experiences, breath and sound processes, drum journeys, interactive dialogue and integration time. Workshops and trainings are taken outdoors (weather permitting) to re-attune to the natural forces of creation, or are held in our cozy, wood-stove heated teaching Lodge.
