Moving in Grace: Elemental Earth Body
Come to Moving in Grace to find yourself in love, with yourself, with the Earth and with others in community. To allow yourself to InBody the Change that you wish to be through this love as you learn how to be deeply with yourself around others so that you can fully express yourself with others and cultivate more loving connections. Let go of trying, rest in knowing you are enough and allow this knowing to guide you towards what nourishes, nurtures and enlivens you as you bring the light of your awareness into the darkness.
We will move what needs to be moved and celebrate being in the mystery of life together. There will be a guided somatic meditation into movement with improvisational musicians co-creating the pulse with us as we drop into our connection with the elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether) and allow movement and vocalization to guide us into nourishing, expansive, sensual, playful & celebratory expression in connection with all beings.
No movement or meditation experience needed! Just come as you are with your curiosity of how you will be moved.
