Dancing with Mars

Mars is raw, unbridled and passionate. Mars can also be incredibly destructive if not channeled consciously. Mars can lead us to our assertiveness, our highest courage (including the courage to use that assertiveness) and our strongest warrior self with a cause. The positive use of anger. When linked with our solar purpose energy, it energises and lights up our life! When suppressed in fear or shame (due to life experience, family upbringing, social or cultural conditions etc) that energy can create havoc inside to bursting point. After too long this can fester as resentment, bitterness, depression and chronic illness.

 

Whether we accept the presence of Mars or not, he is an important and potent part of our psyche.

 

How does it feel to befriend this powerful force and how can this help us move forward, take initiative and stand in courage?

 

Come and dance the dance of Mars this Wednesday at the Bridge with guided visualisations and meditations, and ignite the flame of your own inner dynamic, renewing force.

Dancing with Venus

Venus represents the principle of love and beauty. She rules the desire to be involved in romantic and social relations, to attract and be attracted to others, to engage in artistic activities, to seek harmony and aesthetic or sensuous pleasure. The Venus archetype is associated with the Greek mythic figure of Aphrodite, the Roman Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Venus tends to correlate with how one gives and receives love and affection, the nature of one’s social and romantic relationships, and the character of one’s artistic impulse and aesthetic sensibility.

We will work to connect with and fully embody our highest appreciation of love and the creative energy that Venus bestows upon us through our dance and our 2 hour journey together.

A Weekend of 5 Rhythms Dance

5 Rhythms Dance in JerseyThe Illuminated Heart

A Weekend of 5 Rhythms Dance
with Tim Broughton

The heart is the home of love and a gateway to the soul. Open our hearts and we open in love. This workshop is for those who wish to live in love whether living alone or in relationship. There will be a number of processes, including dancing the Five Rhythms, to help us let go  and open into experiencing love.

Rumi says:
We are looking at your face.
Meadows and rose gardens don’t interest us anymore.
We are lost in the view of your eyes.
Wine and the wine maker no longer have appeal.

5 Rhythms™ Dance is a simple movement practice created by Gabrielle Roth to release the dancer that lives in every body – no matter what shape, size, age, limitations and experience. It is a relaxing, releasing workout for mind, body, and soul. Let go of your mind and let your body take you into your wildness, your tenderness, your joy – with yourself, with others. Come home to the ground of your being. Somewhere in you the dancer is waiting, waiting to be recognised and given life in movement. All you need is yourself & your willingness to move.

Tim Broughton has been running workshops for many years and is an accredited 5 Rhythms teacher. He regularly runs day, weekend and longer residential workshops.

A Dance for Endings, Darkness and New Life:

A Dance for Endings, Darkness and New Life:

Sunday 18th December, The Bridge Family Centre 7-9pm

In Latin, solstice means ‘sun set still’ and Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer.

We will dance consciously into the fruitful dark out of which new life can eventually emerge. Everything lies dormant in the silent night, a sacred time of rest before the awakening, and the slow build toward longer days. We will also dance for the sun that starts a new cycle at winter solstice and acknowledge the suns rays shining into the dark and nurturing the new life there to be cultivated.

What to wear?
Comfortable layered clothing you can move and groove in. Long sleeves for floor work will keep you cozy and allow you to rolls across the floor easier if you feel the need!. It is a barefoot practice, but if you have dance shoes, bring them!

Conscious Dance
Is a dance practice that cleanses your mind with sweat and breath, laughter and prayer. We let go of conversation, dissolve into movement and discover the anatomy of the soul. You will awaken your own imagination and move through personal exploration into a loving, intimate relationship with body, mind, heart, and source energy. We are powerful creative beings and the dance helps us liberate that power and intent.

This dance will be facilitated by Maria. All are welcome! Cost £7
If you have never been before, come along, now is a great time to start 🙂

Awakening the Dreamer

Awakening the Dreamer Mission:

To bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling & socially just human presence on the planet

Created by “The Pachamama Alliance”- a collaboration of indigenous, scientific, activist and humanitarian minds, the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is a transformative and engaging educational experience that empowers participants to respond to humanity’s current situation with action and informed, grounded optimism about our future.

• What is the role of imagination and creativity in our visions of tomorrow?

• What if we felt fully empowered and supported by a network of like-minded individuals to be the change we want to see in our world today?

• If each of us has an innate gift to contribute in our world … what is mine and how can I contribute it?

• Where are we in relation to our planet, how did we get here in the first place and what is emerging?

These are some of the questions we will be asking as we journey together through the heart of our current global situation.
