Can you listen to SPACE above?

 

My precious love
Can only come
From above
In unity
Is born a kiss
Of dignity (…) 

— Lisa Gerrard – Space Weaver

The Wisdom to Accept & the Power to Change

 

Before you go … on holidays or you you will enjoy summer time wherever you are, I would like to invite you to take a look at this video clip and to book your calendar for the end of September to join our journey to Wisdom and Power in Berlin.

The footage for the clip of HOME by Yael Dekelbaum, was taken during The Journey to Peace, which was organized by Women Wage Peace and took place in the desert not far from the dead Sea and Jericho.

Thousands of Palestinian women from all over the west bank alongside thousands of Israeli women, Muslims, Christians and Jews, gathered together to be united by the deep yearning for peace.

 

 

Rivi Diamond (Open Floor teacher who is coming from Israel to Berlin in September) along with her Palestinian friend, partner and inspirational peace activist Huda Abu Arquob, co-facilitated this historic event.

Here is what she has to say …
“Women wage Peace is an Israeli grass roots movement that formulated right after the Gaza war in the summer of 2014. For the past 4 years since, I have been deeply involved and active in this amazing, empowering movement. It has been a deep journey of learning about “the power to change”.

My on- going spiritual practice has been a vital balancing force bringing forth “the wisdom to accept” and the wisdom to know which way is the right way forth for me at any given point. The workshop I will be giving in Berlin this fall, naturally arose from my intense experience of being an involved and pro-active citizen. These are times – all around the globe – that demand of us to be awake, available and responsive.

I find the resources of Open Floor Movement Practice immensely valuable to navigate my way in this terrain. But Wisdom & Power is not only about big social or political activism. It’s about making choices, big and small, every day in life. Perhaps I’ll share more about that later on. Hope to share the dance floor with you when I return to teach in Berlin this September! With love, Rivi”

Shaking the Tree [Open Floor + Family Constellation]

 

“If we know where we came from, we may better know where to go.
If we 
know who we come from we may better understand who we are”….

From before we are born we begin to experience and internalize our family of origin and our ancestors. By the age of seven we have formed internal maps based on these experiences and have made decisions about life and our world- Relationships, success, self- esteem and so on.

Some of these decisions were made during times of stress when our wellbeing was compromised and as we grow older they can get in the way from living a life that is the truest expression of who we are. We also carry within us a natural turning towards wholeness, wellbeing and aliveness.

 

In this next Open Floor workshop in Berlin we will connect with our internal family tree, opening our attention to its shapes as it unfolds through our dance. We will move with the stories in our bodies, inquiry into our shapes, and the movement of our minds Questing for the truth and more authentic ways of being , we will step into who we are meant to be.

The Open Floor weave of four landscapes of Embodiment with four human Hungers will be the foundation of our journey.

Gentle Awakening 

Dear once,

I hope you’re having a soft and gentle beginning of this week. Hope you’re taking a moment to pause from time to time, bringing attention to your body, noticing the state of your heart.

I have prepared a place on my website for you where I want to share samples of my playlists from my weekly sessions to support your practice in your daily life.

 

For the beginning, here is the first one – Gentle Awakening 

Very gentle and soft playlist to awakening your body, to open attention to what’s right here with kindness and self-compassion.

Click here to listen.

 

 

Hope to see you tomorrow. The floor is open at 19.30

Place: Studio Laborgras  
Paul-Lincke-Ufer 44A  (entrance in the 2nd backyard)
10999 Berlin

 

 

The journey begins here.

 

The journey begins here,

With whatever is capturing your attention.

 

Are you gazing at the patterns on some wall?

Are you daydreaming about a celebrity?

 

Is there someone you love and long to cling to,

Disappear into, a soul who is a chalice for

Beauty to pour into the world?

 

Whatever your focus,

Give your whole being.

Gradually, step by step,

The infinity from which you both have emerged,

Will encompass you with blessing.

 

— The Radiance Sutras, Lorin Roche

 

Next Wednesday, February 14th, we begin the next cycle of weekly Open Floor sessions.  

If you took part in the last workshop with Lucie Nerot, Ancient Soul – New Beginnings, you know that new beginnings start right here – with embracing all that arises.

 

My intention for this cycle of Open Floor sessions is to deepen our practice of presence into what is right here and allow the unfolding with clear and kind attention.

We will practice very gentle, mindful presence and include different sensations in our body – the unpleasant and pleasant that move through us.

We will learn to stay – with what is and pay attention to our limits, so we can expand our capacity and our freedom.

 

Register here. When you sign up for the whole cycle you get one session gratis.

 

This practice is reconnecting you with life which is here, over and over again so you can be more alive, more connected and more present in your daily life.

 

See you on the dance floor.
