DANCING WITH LIFE

I have been dancing with life for quite a few years!  I was born in 1952.  And there have been quite a few alarms and excursions in that time. It feels worth saying that.  I have walked some quite dark and lonely paths, and know loss and grief from the inside.  And of course, in all sorts of countless ways I am blessed.

Life can be a profound joy.  And it can be a hard business.  I have learned over the years that some of how I feel is my own choice.  And in times when it feels utterly beyond me to choose, I have found all sorts of wonderful people and tools to support myself not to sink into bitterness.

In these years I have been on the planet, I have studied all kinds of things, and been in service in many ways.  I have a Ph.D in the philosophy of mind, and I taught philosophy in both the USA and in Scotland.  I have been an ante natal teacher.  I am now lucky enough to be a celebrant.  And I work in conflict resolution and mediation. For many years I have enjoyed working as a coach, supervisor and trainer in people skills.

In 1999, I found Conscious Dance as a spiritual practice and path.   Since then, I have qualified as a teacher and facilitator in Movement Medicine.  The wisdom we can access through our bodies has woven itself into everything I do. In all of my work and study, my intention is to more fully understand myself, and our shared humanity.

The clocks change this weekend. And we take another step towards winter. Deep breath. In the dance this week, we will tune into the inner dancer who can trust the darkness and that there is a beauty in every season.

It was gorgeous again to dance out of doors. New faces and familiar faces. The autumn leaves drifted down upon our canopy and around our space. So delicious to dance together in these days.

Again at the end, we formed a circle, two meters apart from each other, and our space was completely encircled. Perfect. I for one had tears of gratitude. For the dancers, for the space, for the dance. And of course for the musicians.

What we learned this week was BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! If you would like to dance with us outdoors, do remember to book. We now know the maximum number that works in the space, so we close the bookings when that number is reached. AND do also remember to leave your phone number on the form.

Beautiful Julia Melville - Initiating Change, who often comes dancing, honoured me by asking me to talk with her about my passion for dance and how it supports me... always, but especially now in these “interesting times”. It was a delightful experience! Thank you, Julia; what a reassuring receptive interviewer.

As is the way with talking about what you care about, it was a joy to talk. And of course, as is the way, I now think I probably left out all the important bits!

Do please listen. I hope you enjoy Julia's zest for life and her passion for creating a positive environment for all of us to flourish!

Join me this afternoon/evening of the Dark Moon! I am minded to settle (in the dance) into the dark empty dreaming space… Opening into all that is with faith and acceptance.
