Dances between Heaven and Earth
A dance workshop for women
with Cornelia Freise (Germany)
July 1 – 7, 2016
Walk to the well.
Turn as the earth and the moon turn,
circling what they love.
Whatever circles comes from the center.
When we dance JOY appears. The body is flooded by it. We are one with ourselves, open for the moment. If we enclose Heaven and Earth in our dances we consciously take part in this miracle. While dancing we can attune ourselves to the unseen and dynamic essence which manifests in an amazing and secret way in the dance. So we are connected with the Divine and with the soul of the world at the same time.
We strengthen our connection downwards to the Earth and upwards to Heaven in the simple structured dances. We learn to be attentive and let go of our thoughts while repeating the steps. In the free dances we open to the movements that our body needs to express. The formless and the form together create a space where we can feel held in our hearts and our bodies. Gravity and lightness combine step by step. The secret of life is dancing with us, jumping in our steps and telling us a joke. While dancing we are part of the ongoing process of creation in which everything is connected to each other and held by Love.
We will work with dances out of the space of the heart®, free dances, meditation of the heart and dreams.
No prior dance training is required.
Each participant is herself responsible for what happens during the dance sessions.
