Stir up your life. Move. Find new direction in the next cycle of Open Floor sessions

If the dance floor would be an ocean of resources I would find there: authenticity, individuality, variety, playfulness, compassion, self-acceptance, resilience, mindfulness, connection, lovingkindness and much more …

 

During last five weeks we went through the cycle of five Core Movement Resources in Open Floor sessions.

 

Each of the session was a new discovery for me and for participants. We shared and communicate our wisdom through our body but also by the end of every session, we shared our experience verbally and through art expression.

 

I was surprised how many great conclusions arose from the experience of the dance and the basic principles of movement resources: GROUND, CENTER, DISSOLVE, TOWARDS & AWAY, PAUSE.

 


The new cycle of five sessions will start again from November 8th (Wednesdays).
We will explore other five-movement resources and hopefully, we will stir up our life, so we can feel more joyful, more present and more embodied in the ride of EVERYDAY LIFE.

 

Come and join us just as you are. No special skills in dancing are necessary. Bring comfortable clothes and the will to move your body.

Dates: November 8th – December 6th

Time: 19.30 – 21.30 + Art Cafe
Place:
Studio Laborgras

How can we move on and stay in our power? How can we stay in our strength when life knocks us off balance?

Last week was a new beginning for me and the point from which I could move on as an Open Floor teacher in training.

It was a challenge for me to begin. I think it is often a challenge for many of us to start something new, to come out from our comfort zone, to move on …

 

It turned out to a very lovely class and I was surprised with the very valuable conclusions which came out after the session in the sharing circle.

 

Our attention was devoted to the ground and the movement of energy toward earth. In this exploration we were looking what can support us, how can we ground ourself when we feel unstable emotionally, physically and mentally.

 

Today at 19.30 (Wednesday, 27.09) we move on again! And the question I would like to put out in the field we will create together is:

How can we move on and stay in our power? How can we stay in our strength when life knocks us off balance?

OPEN FLOOR sessions + ART CAFE begin on September 20th

Do you feel the need to create more space in the midst of everyday tasks and responsibilities? Would it make a difference to pause from time to time? How would it be to dance through everyday life and listen to the wisdom of inner guidance?

This is a series of Open Floor weekly sessions which aim to help you restore the home of inner wisdom. This is a place where you will find infinite resources for self-care, well-being and self- expression in your daily life.

A safe space will be created to support your unique dance and self-expression with whatever is real for you at the present moment on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

 

During these meetings, we will combine the power of movement meditation, our own reflection, artistic expression and heart sharings.

These sessions are open to all. There are no steps you need to learn, no special skills in art needed, nothing can be done wrong. Bring your curiosity and willingness to move your body.

RETURNING HOME

Dear friends, dancers, teachers, and seekers …

 

It was not so long time ago when I came back from the first Module of Open Floor teacher training and it was quite a process for me to arrive at this point.

 

September 20th I start my first Open Floor sessions.

TODAY I’m starting a crowdfunding campaign to help me finance the Open Floor Teacher training.

It was not an easy task for me to create this campaign – money is such an emotional subject and it’s not easy for me to ask for help.

 

What kept me going was the belief that by doing so I have my part in creating better, more embodied world and in the same time I’m inviting you to take a part in this creation.

 

 

RETURNING HOME campaign tells my story, set questions and describes my dreams and wishes.

Take a look at the video, read my text, let me know if you have any question. Click here to see the campaign

Any kind of support is absolutely needed – even sharing this post between your friends will be a huge help! Every click counts – especially during next 48 hours.

As a reward, I have prepared some gifts. It would be wonderful to see you on the dance floor or via Skype!

 

Thank you for being here!

We all are strong in some areas and more challenged in others

It was a great pleasure for me last week to listen to the exciting interview with Kathy Altman & Lori Saltzman: Twin forces behind Open Floor Movement

There is a lot of interesting information in it – I think everyone will find something for themselves. You may want to take a moment and listen, click here

In my case, there was a smile on my face when I heard about two basic principles of the universe which Open Floor works with.

The first universal principle says – nobody needs to teach you – you get the whole package when you are born. It comes with human equipment. It might be a bit frozen but every human being is born with breath and animation.

In Open Floor we teach from the territory we all drinking from – the ground floor.

 

The other universal principle says – no matter who you are and where you are – you are in a constant relationship.

You can be in relationship either with yourself or with another person, a group or a something bigger – the great spirit

Some of us are very advanced in group relation or some of us feel very comfortable partnering somebody on the dance floor or in the real life and there is part of us, for some of us, who are mildly uncomfortable with some of these areas of relations.

We all are strong in some areas and more challenged in others.

What is certain is that if in your life one of your relationships is poorly functioning then it will appear on the dance floor.

So, what a great place to work on your stuff? : )
