Already Allright

Taught by: Sue Rickards

July 30- August 4, 2017

10:00am - 10:00pm

Description

I invite us all, oldtimers and new comers, sometimers and everytimers to come together with the assumption that we will find out together what happens. I will bring, of course, all the experience of my ripe old age, all the trainings and learnings, interest and enthusiasm. I’ll bring material to work with and explore. We’ll dance. And dance and dance and rest and play.

And rather than try to fix anything or improve ourselves, let’s assume that whatever state we are in, we are already alright. That’s a big assumption, but simple and somewhat radical. And it can change everything. We see our situation, our selves, each other from a different perspective.

So that feeling broken or scared or excited or lost or wild or hopelessly happy is all already alright, it’s part of everything. Feeling worthless and worthy and willing or unwilling – anything really – can be welcomed, danced, explored and investigated without worrying about the outcome.

Then healing might happen but maybe not the healing we have on our lists, perhaps whatever’s ready to heal. And we might grow, with whatever is already ready to flourish. And even, maybe, what needs shaking will get it’s shake. Shall we not bother trying to know in advance? I know that takes a bit of courage, but it is already what’s happening and has been for years.

We show up, congregate, dance and explore. Not exploring with an aim to, for instance, increase our power or improve our communication or find our inner child, mend our broken heart. That’s like exploring along a particular path. Let’s unfold the whole map. Lets show up with ourselves just as we are, from moment to moment, dance to dance and see what’s already ready to change of it’s own accord and what to appreciate and value about ourselves and each other, just as we are.

Trusting our dance, trusting ourselves and each other, best we can, even when that’s not very much.

Newcomers very very welcome. Oldtimers – also!

"... to say how grateful I am for having had the opportunity to follow your group at Bois-le-Comte  at a unique place which is only one hour from my home without me knowing it before. The course, the place, the surroundings and last but not least the kitchen and its staff were all one allowing me to be one with the amazing group. I remember well Sue's  explanation on the leaves you open one by one and you never know where you go and what comes next, joy anger, sadness, disappointment, hope, inner feelings changing from one to the other - and much more which is not yet discovered … tremendously exciting and exhausting work. Back to my day to day my stay in the ferme is still omni present and I enjoy that. We will definitively meet again." - Pierre from Luxembourg
