Back to The Body


July 6th – 8th
A weekend of Open Floor conscious dance and enquiry
hosted by Exeter Barefoot Community and Jo Hardy

When we dance we connect, we learn to open and deepen into the wisdom of our own body and heart; a radical act of love that moves us beyond our often-distracted minds and resistance, into a landscape of embodiment, mystery, creativity and aliveness. Through learning to stay with our experience whether it’s good or bad, through expanding our ability to be fluid and flexible, we can open to experiencing all of the wild and subtle moments that go by, the ones that are heavenly and the ones that drop us to our knees.

How can we move and include it all – feelings, other people, thoughts, wild passions, limitations? Can we use movement to soften the tight spots in our tender hearts and stretch our capacity for relationship? What happens if we turn old repetitive thoughts into choreography for creative dances?

This weekend will be a great opportunity to deepen our dance and explore many rich landscapes. Our journey will be informed by Open Floor movement explorations, heart dialogue / enquiry and sharing.

Cost: £135 for weekend inclusive of all food and camping fees
