Wild Earth Dance (Re-wild your body, mind and spirit)

 

 

Dive with us into the deep waters of conscious ecstatic dance to access the wisdom of the body in a moving meditation.

** BOOK EARLY AND SAVE £5 **

In a gathering of beautiful beings, we dance together with compassion and acceptance of the beautiful and tragic human condition through our body prayer.

Our movements open and heal our hearts and give us the courage and possibility to fully be ourselves without apology, on an open floor space that allows our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. Our hall is dimly lit and laced in connection and authenticity, without specific observers or verbal conversation. Suggestions and invitations are given through a microphone by the facilitator in a space that is held enough to feel safe and yet open enough to encourage creative freedom of expression. Newcomers are always welcome.

There is much evidence to suggest that creative, spontaneous movement and dance supports a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.

Join us to return back home fully to the body again.

When: Saturday 8th June

** Bring: water, blanket
** Wear: comfy layers
** Cost: book your place before 5th June and pay earlybird price of just £10 … otherwise £15 after and on the door.

** Location: The Bridge Family Centre in Le Geyt Road
** Time: 7pm to 9pm.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to begin on time together.

The evening is facilitated by Maria Barnicoat who started holding regular conscious dance classes back in 2008 (‘bare foot ecstatic dance’ and later ‘soul movement’) after immersing in shamanic dance practices that supported and deepened her personal growth and spiritual journey. Influenced strongly by 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, Buddhism, Nature and Mysticism with a passion for loving our planet, staying grateful and overthrowing the patriarchy.

Wild Earth Dance

A dance floor for you to journey into a deep connection with yourself and experience the liberation and ecstatic relief of full body integration and presence through conscious movement.

 

Our space is dimly lit with a supportive creative community of bodies being facilitated into moving meditation through gentle encouragement of moment by moment awareness, with compassion and acceptance of the beautiful and tragic human condition, personal and collective.  Dance melts and heals our hearts and gives us the courage and possibility to fully be ourselves without apology.

 

Our gathering is at the gateway to the Spring Equinox when the Sun moves into the constellation of Aries for new beginnings (coinciding with a full moon just to add to the heightened energy!). During our evening together we’ll take time to create a body prayer meditation for this celebrated time, to tune into our deepest calling so that our seedling energy and efforts for the year grow from a place of reflected congruence and heartsong.

 

Beginners and seasoned movers all welcome.

Join us and remember why dance has been an intrinsic part of our cultural community expression since time began.

Soul Movement – Uncovering Joy

What obscures us from experiencing the JOY of LIFE?

It is possible to experience so much joy if we are free from the tensions that cloud this natural state of being. Our witnessing and care transforms stuckness into sweet flow and into the direction of being able to celebrate the blossoming of life, which is so prominent in our flourishing spring environment right now. Come and be guided on a sweet soul nourishing journey.

What is Soul Movement?

* Created in 2008, under the original name of Bare Feet Ecstatic Dance by Maria, Soul Movement is an exhilarating and nurturing mind, body and spirit dance and movement journey, taking us into the core of our hearts and innate creativity. It helps to release stuck patterns in our mind, body and spirit and we are left pulsating with life and more empowered to live from a place of truth and soul integrity, where spontaneity resides. It is inspired by beautiful music and held in a sweet and gentle dimly lit space with the aim of dropping deeply into our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation which develops a direct body-mind-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers and healers.

When: Friday 18th May
Where: The Bridge Family Centre. Take a sharp right into the old St Marks School site at the bottom of St Saviours Hill.
Bring: Water and blanket
Wear: Layers and comfy clothes to move freely in.
Cost: £12 or call me for concessionary rates if needed.
Contact: Maria on 07797832400 or email mariaearthbeauty@gmail.com

Maria has been in the health and wellbeing industry since leaving school and has been holding meditation and inner journey healing spaces for over 10 years. She is passionate about helping to resource others to be empowered, happier, healthier, with the freedom to live with authenticity and simplicity.

Please arrive 10 mins early.

Laughing and Dancing for Life

Soul Movement has had yet another rebirth and return back into the community here in Jersey.

After nearly 3 years of tending to my beautiful new daughter, I realised it was time to come back and begin our dances again. We began our evening with 45 minutes of strange guffawing, cackling and gibberish.  Johann Liffey and I held the space for our lovely crew and everyone seemed to really get into the slight insanity that is laughter yoga!

We wound down with a sweet heart meditation and relaxation and a few more people joined us for our dance. Did I say dance? Actually we completely raved it up and sweated our tears, prayers and intentions on this new moon time. Amazing to see all the familiar faces back again.

I felt nervous coming back to this space holding role again after such a long time out, but actually it was gorgeous to be back in such good company again. I felt blessed to be able to hold this space for others which actually really grounds me and gives me a sweet outlet for service and creativity that feels a bit like home for me in some ways. Dance is a magical portal into emerging our wonderful potential as well as bringing with it deep healing. For me, there is no greater tool that connects us to the fullness of life and who we are. This tool takes us into the edge and beyond of our comfort zone. That place where restraints dissolve and transformations take place.

Looking forward so much to our next gathering in month: Sistermoon – A Dance and Gathering Just for Women which will be a deep journey and enquiry into the loss of the feminine in our world and the emerging rebirth that is rising up through the earth and through our hearts and bones. Come and dance with us dear women.

Love Maria

 

SISTERMOON – Full Moon Dance and Gathering for Women

FULL MOON GATHERING FOR WOMEN

Friday 27th July

“The Gifts of Ancestors”

Join our beautiful sacred space to dance, share and love together at full moon time. Each gathering we focus on a different theme to help us heal and rise the feminine energy. This month we dance with our ancestors and the gifts they bring us.
Our upcoming Sun in Leo and Full Moon in Aquarius Lunar Eclipse moon is ripe with potential for us to create transformation in our lives and the world around us. They give us the opportunity to create sacred space and consciously integrate shadow aspects and inner and outer challenges. We will use the energy to acknowledge the deep well of support we have behind us and the journey our ancestors took to bring us where we are today. We’ll give this attention and care to whatever is arising or feeling unintegrated in our lives and prepare ourselves for the next chapter.

What could happen if us women gave ourselves the time and energy to dive in and explore our power and possibilities in a sacred supportive space?

Our gatherings have been a sweet respite for us women in our busy and patriarchal modern world. Dance is a magical portal to ride us into our journey into healing and rising our feminine as it fully supports our feminine nature and unfolding healing processes. In the realm of conscious dance with the intention of love and integration, transformation happens.
 
This isn’t a place where we’ll be impressing each other with our dance moves. We will drop in deeply to our bodies and our space will support authentic healing movement and our own unfolding creative expression.
We also use some yummy essential oils to support and nurture us, and nibble on delicious raw chocolate!
Date: Friday 27th July
Venue: The Bridge Centre, St Saviour, Jersey
Facilitator: Maria Barnicoat
Time: 7.00 -9.15pm (please arrive at least 10min before)
Bring: Notebook and blanket. Pictures/objects of past relatives and ancestral connections
Cost: £15 – see ticket link to book
About the facilitator: Maria has been holding spaces for meditation, dance and reflection for over 10 years and working with her own spiritual journey for much longer, and particularly feels passionate about helping to create sisterhood, empowerment and connection in women and in our community and the world around us.

Sistermoon – April’s Full Moon Womens Dance

16 april 2014Ladies we are coming together again to honour the divine feminine and her many sacred aspects <3

Our women’s only dances are a very special time to really allow ourselves to feel the force of the feminine in our bodies.  She is healing, transforming, accepting, powerful, open, sensual, playful and courageous and as women of the 21 Century in a world dominated by the masculine energy, we are so ready to let her come into her full expression and power again.  Too long we have hidden her.  This is a bonding space for sister energy – where the judgments and fears of the past can be transformed into peace and harmony.

We will particularly honour the Libran Full Moon energy of harmony, balance and beauty.

Bring your blankets, some water and wear something and/or bring something for the altar that represents the divine feminine in you. Wear comfy layers you can move around in.

If you have not been before, come and dive in with us into this dance  … you will be held perfectly.

So excited to see you all and journey together!

Cost £10 or £8 for concessions.
Facilitated by Maria

Intimacy, Innocence and Connection – A 5Rhythms Weekend with Tim Broughton

postertimdanceweekendWe are so very lucky to be able to have Tim over for another gorgeous weekend of dance and journeying within.

One of the deepest fears we have as men and women is to allow ourselves to feel safe enough to let go into being touched physically and emotionally. It is also what many of us long for with our friends and our partners.  This
workshop is designed to guide you, through dance, to a place of trust and innocence, and an experience of profoundly touching and loving intimacy.

Sometimes we are deeply touched simply by looking into another’s eyes and allowing them to look into ours.There is no prescription; it is different for all of us and as wide as the ocean. Come dance, and experience the gifts of intimacy, innocence & connection.

What are the 5Rhythms?

The 5 Rhythms comprise a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body, no matter what shape, size, age, limitations and experience. To find your dance is to find yourself, at your most fluid and
creative level. While the practice itself is the essence of simplicity, it has the power to catalyse deep healing and creative expression. The primary teaching of this work is: if you put the body in motion the psyche will heal itself.

The rhythms are the foundation of Gabrielle Roth’s work, a series of healing maps for the body, heart, mind, soul and spirit that provide a lifetime of self discovery and a path to awakening.

About Tim Broughton

Tim has worked with individuals and groups in a variety of contexts formany years, is a counsellor and accredited 5Rhythms teacher.  He trained with Gabrielle Roth in 1994 and 1997/8. He  regularly runs day, weekend and longer residential workshops.  His wish for all of us is to find the
courage to live with all the love, passion, vulnerability, intensity and celebration that is our birth right.  See www.opentolife.co.uk.
