We are essentially fluid beings constantly changing as we breathe and move through life. We live in challenging times, we are often in transition, finding ourselves living life in unexpected ways. Many of us are drawn to movement practices because in the dance we discover our passion, our life force and it allows us to experience ourselves at our most fluid, soulful, and connected.
Faced with life’s inescapable challenges we often are struggling to connect the truth of our inner lives, with the outer worlds we inhabit and to bring it into our daily lives.
We can easily become fearful that our inner darkness might be exposed and, act …as if… Presenting ourselves in some way, hoping to be approved of, to be loved, hiding the very vulnerability which makes us “human” in the best possible sense. We both fear and long for attention from others. When fear arises we easily lose our presence in fixed roles and seemingly solid identities …as if… we were untouched by feelings. And as a result we become disconnected from what is true for us.
The Encounter process which offers individual attention within careful group holding provides the opportunity to look below the surface of your life. To the habitual patterns and long-held beliefs and assumptions you have about yourself and others.
We witness ourselves as we are mirrored by others, embracing and embodying our own shapes and movements with the support of the group.
The ability to witness each other, as well as oneself, is an essential part of Encounter. Witnessing, as well as the chance to be seen and heard by others, supports each participant’s capacity to change, become more fluid and has a profound impact on the individual, as well as the group. Collectively and individually, we allow each and every part that emerges from us to move through our bodies in dance. This work enables us to develop compassion and respect for the Mystery and vulnerability that connects us all.
Using a combination of the Encounter group process, one-on-one feedback and smaller group work, we will investigate the patterns and themes of our lives that emerge, spontaneously and inevitability from the movement of our bodies. We use Core Movement Resources to explore and develop new skills that will support us. We take time for dancing and moving to enter, and settle, the process.
The Encounter Unfolding is a group of conscious movement practitioners who are looking for a profound opportunity to know yourself and be known, to learn to stand in intensity and make clear choices, both individually and collectively.
