SHINE – A Soul Movement Dance for Everyone

soul movement poster facebook“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

Yes!!

Don’t live in fear of who you are anymore.  You are more amazing than you could ever imagine. The universe is telling us to wake up to who we really are and to stop living in fear, depression, sadness and denial.  If you have felt the call to open up more parts of yourself and push yourself into unknown exciting territories, then this is the dance class for you.

Combining dance, meditations, visualisations and powerful affirmations, our journey will take you back home to your true nature which is pure and bright.  This class is not religously orientated but does support your spiritual journey whatever beliefs you may subscribe to.

See http://earth-beauty.com/soul-movement/ for info and testimonials from dancers.

You do not have to be feeling physically strong or even in good form, just come as you are and let the facilitation, energy and light in the dance space create its magic with you.

Bring: water, blanket, wear loose fitting layers.
Cost: £10 or £8 for concessions

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
Call 744022 for more information.

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.

Opening into Rhythm

jan 2014

“Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances.” – Maya Angelou

One of the most wonderful gifts we can give ourselves this year is to choose to live a life of full expression, heart connection and truth.  Opening ourselves up to rhythm, the rhythm that is always present in ourselves and all of life brings us into a deeper and more fulfilling relationship to ourselves and the world around us. ‘Opening into Rhythm in 2014’ is a Soul Movement Dance Class for everyone.  Our dance space is a sacred place to discover your inner dancer if you’ve not yet met them, and a place to reignite and reconnect again and again to your power and strength.

Soul Movement classes are totally free-form movement /dance classes inspired by music and facilitation from the teacher, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance.  It’s an inner/outer journey of moving meditation, letting your body, heart and soul be your inner guide.  There is much evidence to suggest that dance is an intrinsic part of a healthy community and has been practised since the beginning of time as a way to connect deeper into our potential and the fabric of the magical beings that we are.  New dancers and seasoned dancers from everywhere are invited to join this community.

Maria started these classes after being greatly inspired by Movement Medicine, 5Rhythms and Soul Motion.  Come and see what your inner dancer can offer you.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the last Soul Movement Dance Class to be facilitated by Maria until March!

• Please bring a water bottle, blanket for times of lying stillness and relaxation.
• Dress in easy to move in layers.
• Please arrive through the top entrance in tower road where there is a carpark.
• Cost £10 or £8 for concessions.
• Doors open and music will begin playing at 6:15 for any early arrivals.

Facilitation begins from 6:30pm and is held by Maria.

SisterMoon Full Moon Dance for Women

moondance
The third of a series of 3 special dances in honour of the goddess archetypes in all of us women.  It doesn’t matter if you missed the first two, just don’t miss this last one ♥ With it being so close to the solstice, we will also honour this dark time of year too.
In ancient times, women were acknowledged to be earthly manifestations of the goddess, or the divine feminine.  Women embraced their wild natures, their sensuality and their potential for all encompassing acceptance, and their culture supported …this in them.  In recent ages, this honouring of the feminine has seemed to diminish completely, with a disregard for women and their power and an over emphasis and encouragement of the masculine energy; the goal fixated, doing, faster, faster, more more more, consuming, progressive, active energy.  In these very recent years, we are finally beginning to see that a world without enough feminine: acceptance, being, feeling, creative expression is a world in turmoil and completely out of balance.
We will journey together through the sacred movement of dance to give space and intention to opening up our feminine natures and potential again!
No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.

Soul Movement Sister Moon Full Moon Dance for Women

Moondance_by_WargusEstor

After a very beautiful first women’s only full moon dance earlier this month, here is the second one in a series of three for 2013.

In ancient times, women were acknowledged to be earthly manifestations of the goddess, or the divine feminine.  Women embraced their wild natures, their sensuality and their potential for all encompassing acceptance, and their culture supported this in them.  In recent ages, this honouring of the feminine has seemed to diminish completely, with a disregard for women and their power and an over emphasis and encouragement of the masculine energy; the goal fixated, doing, faster, faster, more more more, consuming, progressive, active energy.  In these very recent years, we are finally beginning to see that a world without enough feminine: acceptance, being, feeling, creative expression is a world in turmoil and completely out of balance.

We will journey together through the sacred feminine movement of dance to give space and intention to opening up our feminine natures and potential again!

No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.

“It begins with a heartbeat, a breath, a quickening. Out of the still, silent waters of the mystic ocean of eternity, a tiny droplet of light slowly emerges, like the full moon reflected on the water. The doors of your perception swing open and your senses reach out like shining beams of moonlight to embrace the infinite rhythms and expressions of creation. As you relax into the expansive beauty of this universal dance, soothing waves of celestial grace surround and caress you in a never-ending stream of warmth and tenderness. Your heart opens as you feel the gentle touch of the Divine Mother, the supreme light and energy of Divinity, nurturing and enlivening the clear luminous flame of your own immortal spirit.” Sharron Rose, Awakening the Divine Feminine.

 

Womens Full Moon Dance

Full Moon

“Once upon a time, in the sacred societies and temples of the ancient world, women were respected and revered as the living embodiment of their divine role model, the Great Goddess. Their bodies were seen as sacred alchemical vessels of creation and transformation, as radiant temples of Divinity filled with the vital healing and transformative current of light and energy that ceaselessly pours outward from the Primordial Source of all life. Deeply in tune with the inner world of spirit and the outer forces of nature, women were known as the Keepers of the Sacred Mysteries.” Sharron Rose

At this magical time of the month, at the full moon, we will join together to dance our truth and dare to reconnect fully with our divine feminine which is so often squashed down in our modern times.  This essence of us is when we are at our most intuitive, at our most creative, at our most loving, nurturing and accepting of all we are.

No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.
