What Movement medicine is?
Shortly, it's a movement meditation which consider movement is a medicine… We consider we all are dancers : why ? as everything inside our body is permanently in motion, in rhythms, in pulse, in beat in vibrations… heart, cells, blood, fluids … so dancing is natural.
Moreover, we are living on a planet who is always in movement with Sun , Moon and other planet and constellations… earth rotation, nature cycle…movement is part of our earth 'system.
Moving and dancing are so obvious as a natural way of expression… we only have to remember it and awake and free the dancer who lives inside us… Welcoming our condition and emotion and dare to let their intelligence of physicality to fully express itself.
To be specific: movement medicine is a contemporary shamanic movement meditation practice, in order to fully be present and aware about self including and welcoming other and all life around us.
Activating our motion and emotions into dance with the support of Movement Medicine Mandala.This one, is a kind of map representing what we call the 21 gratitudes. They could be understood as 21 ways, 21 gateways, landscapes, dimensions in order to step in dance of life and fully embody our physicality.
To awaken our inner-Dancer, we also move with the support of archetype energies as:
- Tree of Life
- MESA Practice ( Micro#Medio#Macro#Meta#Mystica)
- Wise Elder
- Dancing Warrior
- Magical Child,
- The Foul,
- and most of important things… desire to dance by letting our body intelligence leading us.
This is what I would like to explore with you during these classes… including the bigger picture and Nature around us.Please remember all these aspects are only invitations to welcome new possibilities…The main purpose is to dance, and through the dance be free and (inter- ) connected.
