The best medicine is often an untamed, sweaty dance. Sometimes it's a good cry. Other times we need the support of a therapist or body-worker, a courageous conversation or silent contemplation.
Open Floor teachers are artfully trained to get people to move (activate), settle (deactivate), then pause as they witness themselves and others. They support people to embody all the thoughts and feelings that inevitably arise when we dance, and know when to suggest further support.
When our body moves, everything moves. A gesture brings on a flood of feelings. A surge of emotion creates sensation. Thoughts of loved ones stir us up. Our minds may keep us tight and frozen, or help us make sense of what just happened in the dance. Anything we try to push away can become our limitation.
On the Open Floor we move and include the juicy moments of joyful release, as well as the challenging ones: pain in the body, shyness, self-limiting beliefs, a sense of isolation.
This is how we learn to be true, fluid and whole.
