when we hold our breath we deny spirit an entry to our body. depending on how willing we are to breathe determines our experience of being alive. often we refuse our own breath because we are afraid of being ourselves, being authentic, being alive.
in this workshop we will use the catalytic energy of the 5rhythms and soul motion to cultivate a place where we allow our bodies to breathe and invite aliveness vitality into all parts of our bodies and our lives. we will take refuge in our breath and allow it to move us. with the help of our breath and our movement we can learn how to expand our awareness of ourselves and our world. we will build our tolerance of being present in our body while keeping our hearts open.
mary oliver says,
listen, are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?
while the soul, after all, is only a window,
and the opening of the window no more difficult
than the wakening from a little sleep.
