“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened. “
– Dr. Seuss
Your Embodiment workshop is amazing and timely
I too have noticed the tension in myself and in those around me. There are those who hold rigidly to their values while the “resistance” movement is inspired through righteous anger. I’ve come to understand that we are working to protect something we LOVE. From that awareness, we can soften so that the “battle” isn’t draining and opposition does not throw us off center. This was greatly demonstrated in the Drishti experiences.
There were profound moments of release for me in the workshop. One instance was when we were on our belly and you asked, “can you give yourself permission to exist?” That was powerful and cut right to the heart. Tara Brach speaks about the trance of unworthiness that many of us are in. It was a wow moment as I recognized, through my body, the holding that was there.
The Kinesics experience was enlightening as well. I noticed differences in all directions and observed how proximity of others limited my movement.Coincidentally, I practiced this morning with Shiva Rea’s Fluid Power DVD. Her approach invites softening and release through the joints, creating movement that is more dance-like than rigid. Having experienced the sense of embodied presence through slow movement in your workshop, the openness and lightness necessary for fluid movement was more available.
Thanks for bringing this program to this area. I think you’ll find a broad audience for it.
