Solstice - Darkness and Light Open Floor Day workshop

St. Kevins Hall, 46 Bloomfield Ave, Portobello, Dublin 8

'When you light a candle, you also cast a shadow'.   Ursula K. Le Guin

At Solstice, during the days of midsummer when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky, this day of movement, enquiry and dance is designed to ground and support us as we travel through the realms of the body, heart and soul.

Our Soul encompasses both light and darkness, and when the light of the sun is high and strong, as it is at this time of year, our shadows are at their longest. We can see more clearly into our true nature and recognise the places where we are bound.  

In the dance we meet the intelligence of the life force moving through us, we practice yielding to what arises and giving it form and expression. This opens doorways to our deeper selves, and encourages us to access places we may have yet to own or embody. 

Drawing on the resources of Open Floor movement practice and the healing power of dance as meditation we turn towards our light and our darkness, moving with what is illuminated, and with what is emerging, and gently integrating what we can with curiosity and compassion.
