Soul Food - Dancing our Wild Hungers

Soul Food - Dancing our Wild Hungers

Soul Food pre final.jpg

“ Too many people are hungry not because there is dearth of food. It is because there is dearth of love and care in human hearts.” SADHGURU JAGGI VASUDEV

We are relational beings, living in a relational universe. Embodying relational intelligence and becoming fluid in the relational field can be soul food that softens and warms our hearts, and delivers us into our most fulfilling, joyful and meaningful life.

The dance floor is a wonderful place to explore this sacred mystery of Self and Other, as well as that mysterious place where the sense of separation finally dissolves into Oneness.

Through Open Floor Movement Practice we will develop skills in the moving embodiment of four basic hungers or aspects of relationship:

- The Hunger for Solitude and relationship to Self
- The Hunger for Connection and relationship to Another

- The Hunger for Belonging and relationship to Group
- The Hunger for Spirit and relationship to Source

Our task as humans is to practice the fine art of balancing all four of these hungers in our lives. Each offers deep medicine and soul food. When we feel out of balance in any one of these areas, we generally feel out of sorts. Most of us are strong in some areas and weak in others.

What are you hungry for in your life right now? Let’s dance together and find out.
All warmly welcome. Come just as you are.

Geordie Jahner, Ph.D. (Psychology), is a dance artist, educator, facilitator of conscious dance practices and expressive arts therapist. Formerly a professional modern dancer and dance teacher, Geordie is passionate about the exploration of dance as a healing art and as spiritual practice.

Libido Fundamentals
Nov
23
to Nov 25

Libido Fundamentals

  • The University of Notre Dame (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Carl Jung states that “Libido is appetite in its’ natural state”-  it is an essential part of our body’s natural expression. Complicated one moment, ecstatic the next absent or burdened with expectations of past experiences, this energy within and between us comes to the dance longing for freedom.

The intention in Open Floor Movement practice is to mindfully support our full embodiment. In one dance we may feel juicy, radiant and desirable while at other times we battle feeling awkward or shy. It is often challenging to navigate our own experiences and/or the sexual energies around us.

Libido Fundamentals investigates this complex and creative conundrum by using movement to ground, build and explore our sexual energy. We embrace a wider definition of Libido as life force, birth place of creativity, vitality, presence and aliveness. Because sexuality is so often unconsciously acted out or ignored, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, intimate, liberating and empowering.

Participants can expect to spend each day engaging in mindful movement practice, group sharing and inquiry along with some didactic education. Nudity and actual genital contact are not a part of this workshop.

This course is an introduction to longer intensives, where we mine the multitude of historical, emotional, relational, creative and spiritual aspects of our sexuality. The challenges and risks of this journey is well worth the pleasure and beauty.

This active meditation will have you falling in love with yourself over and over again.

Inquiry in Motion

Integrating Somatic Experiencing on the Open Floor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inquiry - a seeking or request for the truth



Join us as we embark on a dynamic exploration of the truth that resides in our own body. Through movement, dance and mindful inquiry, we will journey below the stories about who we are and who we should be.

Guided by a weave of the Open Floor movement practice and Somatic Experiencing® principles, we will strengthen our skills to listen, track and follow our innate emotional intelligence, discovering how it speaks to us through sensation, textures and tones. From our practice on the dance floor, you will develop greater trust in your body's natural intelligence that will enable you to live with more awareness, vitality and joy.

Stacey Butcher is an Open Floor Movement Teacher and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner based in California. She is also a Reiki Master/Teacher and Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher. Stacey has been dedicated to the healing arts for over 20 years and has studied with healers and teachers from around the world. Her teaching is infused with passion, deep presence and humor. She is an inspirational facilitator and is skilled at holding space for transformation.

For more info about Stacey’s work, visit www.StaceyButcher.com.

All levels of experience welcome.

This workshop counts as 13 hours of prerequisites and electives for the Open Floor Teacher Training.

"It is a rare occasion when you can find a teacher who can hold both form and formlessness, provide guidance and allow autonomy, and work with life's paradox with such skillful grace and ease. Count yourself lucky when you do. And if you haven't had the good fortune of such an encounter, hurry to one of Stacey's classes so you can experience this particular gift. She is masterful."
Erica Harrold, Director of Communications and Technology at Spirit Rock Meditation Center

HELD Hakomi on the Open Floor
Nov

10:00 AM10:00

HELD Hakomi on the Open Floor

Using the movement practice of Open Floor dance and the self-inquiry principles of Hakomi we will navigate this territory. Moving away from our habits of disconnection, and feeling more centred and grounded, to take delight in life.


Open Floor invites us to explore how it is to feel held in the different aspects of ourselves: the physical, emotional, mental and spirit levels of self. How does it feel when we are connected to ourselves in solitude? How does it feel when we are connected to people around us, when we sense that we are at home and we belong?

Hakomi principles invite us to be in loving presence in all that we do, with ourselves and with each other. Then we feel safe to authentically express what is happening right now. Hakomi utilises the principle of organicity, that we are organically and naturally geared towards growth and evolution, and that we are ok as we are.

Ajay(Hakomi) and Theva(Open Floor) will guide you through a day of dance and inquiry into a space of loving connection with self and others

About Open Floor
www.openfloor.org

About Hakomi
http://hakomi.com.au/about-hakomi/

The invitation of this workshop, through dance and Hakomi, is to be real with yourself, to listen and be heard, to hold and feel HELD.

Times:
Sunday 10:00 - 16:00

Full Price: $120

Loving Being Real - An Open Floor Dance workshop

Loving Being Real - An Open Floor Dance workshop

4 new places have been opened up

Email dheva72@hotmail.com to register and book


This workshop will be a deep journey into emotional intelligence, emotional resilience and learning to live your truth. Madhuma travels to us from Melbourne where her work has been profound and life changing for her students.

It is easy to be real when we are on our true path and aligned with our values. But when things are not going our way it is easy to move into resistance. Our minds, bodies and emotions throw up negative, self sabotaging loops and patterns that can take us out and away from our immediate experience. Love is the central thing. When our love for 'being real' becomes stronger than our reactions and stories, a tipping point occurs, and with that comes a willingness to 'BE' with whatever arises. What is real and true comes into focus.

Buoyed by our movement practice and our community of willing souls, a real possibility is offered for you to access new layers of emotional intelligence, emotional resilience, and choice.

This is a love affair with the real you. There is no going back, But why on this sweet earth would you?

  Madhuma's teaching has grown out of 35 years of meditation, spiritual enquiry and the living wisdom of Osho's lineage. Having trained to teach 5Rhythms with Gabrielle Roth in 2007, she branched out to become an Open Floor Movement Teacher. Madhuma aim is to hold space with a gentle creative power. I am certain whether your dance is one of despair, rapture or simply 'ho-hum', it is the perfect doorway into a more real, alive and wondrous way of being here and now.
