A guidance in Dancemeditation is “Body moves and mind follows.” We bring the same sense into this moving/writing session. Move first, letting go of mind, then write, letting our words be influenced by the immersion in body-fluency.
Bring your cushy mat, journal, and pen.
~ No experience necessary. Bring a friend! ~
In this session, we begin with a Dancemeditation process of inward facing movement, followed by a writing period, then a read back segment, and concluding with group conversation.
Dancemeditation™ is an exploratory, deepening process using inward-facing movement and breath focus practiced side-by-side, together. Movement is balanced with rest to allow integration. Practices include: Breath Dances, Rocking, Sufi Hand Dances, Lead and Follow, Deep State Movement Meditations, Vibration & Wave Form Motion, Witness Dancing, Veil Dances, Dervish Whirling, writing, Deep Rest. Dancemeditation™ regenerates, heals, connects, and transports us to embodied presence again, and again. Dancemeditation™ helps us trust ourselves. We move through the crust of harried surface worries and into our huge spiritual intelligence. Body speaks to us from the flow of our most Original self, freeing us from habitual patterns, and increasing our awareness of embodied present-ness. Without words, with beautiful music, with eyes open or closed, in the continual flow of breath awareness, we weave our inner and outer space and ignite our spiritual heart. Dunya’s powerful teaching guides participants into their depths, their aliveness, their presence.
