#ThursdayExpressions: Grit & Pearl
Time & Location
About the Event
#ThursdayExpressions is a weekly chance to dance together online. On 3rd June, we'll acknowledge the grit of our daily lives - that uncomfortable stone in your shoe, that speck of annoyance in your eye, or that irritation with they people that you usually love. Once we open to it, express it and dance with the sensation, then transformation can take place. We take care of the grit, and cover it with nacre. With patience and loving intention, the grit becomes a beautiful, glistening pearl.
Pearls are the birthstone for all those born in June. Email me here for your birthday gift of dance.
For those new to the practice:
Expressive Movement is an embodied mindfulness practice, enabling a greater sense of presence and freedom. With music, and through dancing, we are able to activate conscious awareness, creative action and authentic connection. The five phase practice, founded by Sian Palmer begins with a gentle warm up, and then moves through a deeper listening into our present experience, expressing what is moving through us, and then releasing, dreaming into new possibilities and integration.
An integral aspect of the wave is impermanence - our lives are constantly evolving and what annoys us one day, may be the source of inspiration the next. We come face to face with what is difficult, in order to transform and grow. Ultimately, the grit is the pearl.
