INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE


“We co-create with the universe, the more creative our participation the more creative the universe and The Great Mystery becomes. To live in the universe of creative becoming, what honor and what responsibility.” - Chris Cleave

How can we deepen our ability to be in a co-creative relationship with The Great Mystery, to listen more attentively to the whisper of our heart dreams, and to follow no matter what we encounter on the road? Conscious, creative becoming means sailing at the edge of not-knowing rather than contracting back into our fears and insecurities. It means developing an open, curious buoyancy that supports us to go where our heart has a yes, where we follow what we love and we embody our deepest values.

Through Movement Medicine practice we will deepen our relationship to this process of the art of becoming, open our minds to receive new inspiration and reclaim our self as a co-creator with life. We will dance and dance, see and be seen, tenderly reveal the whispers of our hearts and explore heart enquiry questions such as: -

  • How do we face into the unknown whilst relaxing into our self ‘as we are’? 

  • Where do fear, doubt or control kick in?

  • What qualities and capacities support conscious, creative becoming?

  • What unique gifts and potentials are blossoming within?

  • What is our unique contribution to the co-creative flow of life?
