Ecstatic Dance Under The Sky

Hosted by Body Moves – Ecstatic Awakening Dance

Cambridgeshire, Sat 20 April 2019 6:30–10:30pm

We will gather in a beautiful ancient woodland 10 miles west of Cambridge. The evening will start with a raw Cacao Ceremony. You will then be given headphones for the Ecstatic Awakening Dance session. We will warm up and shake together before moving out into the woods guided by our bodies, breath, music & nature. After the session there will be a lovely hot sauna, hot tubs, cold tubs (for those brave enough!) and a camp fire. The evening is an opportunity to connect deeply with your nature, adventure into the landscape & replenish and relax with kindred spirits.

Price: £25 (£1 from each ticket will be given to Winter Comfort)

Fluid Heart

5Rhythms® Heartbeat with Jason Rowe

Cambridge, 25–26 May 2019

Feelings move us in a myriad of ways. Sometimes we block their power or question their relevance, and at other times we simply become numb.

Our feelings are often associated with life’s stories. In the 5Rhythms Heartbeat map we move with the energy underneath these stories, giving plenty of space to the core emotions of Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy and Compassion.

In doing so we drop into our organic and natural way of being and empower ourselves to move with courage, forgiveness, surrender, generosity and be in service to the world around us. Totally alive within a Fluid Heart.

This is a heartbeat-level workshop, practising the ability to embody, express, and release our emotional world through movement. You need to have a good grounding in the physical level of 5Rhythms practice – a minimum of 15 hours is recommended. Please ask if you’re unsure.

St Philip’s Primary School, Vinery Way; Sat 11am–6pm, Sun 11am–5pm.

Full price £150; early-bird £120 by 12 April 2019, 5RTA members £120.

To book your place or for further info email Nicky Smith on clearmindmeditations@gmail.com or call +44 (0)7778 852052.

An on-going closed group with Alex Svoboda of FreedomDANCE

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

freedomDANCE sessions are not dance classes as such.

Yes, we move to the music. Yes, we sweat. Yes, we dance with commitment and abandon…

And yet, what we do is much more elusive, subtle and mystical than perfecting dance routines. We are establishing connections. And our dance floor is the nexus of these connections.

This on-going group will be dedicated to honouring the connection between what we practice physically on the dance floor and what we begin to practice in our lives. We will be celebrating the dance’s ability to change our life for the better!

We will dance fully in a company of the same people and we will invite the best things that the dance offers so generously into our everyday life.
