AN OPEN FLOOR COMMITTED ONGOING GROUP

SEPTEMBER 2019 TO JANUARY 2020

‘As we journey from the womb of the sea with our gaze of longing fixed upon the stars, we have stopped off on this earth of a short spell of belonging ‘ Pat O’ Donoghue

As human beings we live in a world of polarity and we long for union. In our daily lives we are constantly moving in-between poles; inner and outer, masculine and feminine, light and darkness, seeking balance within and around us. Our sexual energy is the rhythmic dance that balances, restores and heals the life force energy moving through us. It flows from the core of our being, offering a pathway to unify the opposing forces within ourselves and create a sense of wholeness, joy and belonging in our lives.

Modern culture moves many of us out of right relationship with our physical bodies, with our sensuality and our sexuality as a sacred, natural and healing force. We are frequently pressured to be more or to be other than we really are. This causes stress and shame, blocking the possibility of real intimacy with ourselves and each other.

Beginning on the Autumn Equinox and carrying us through winter, this three module ongoing group is an invitation to gather together, to move, rest and sit in circle as we engage with the current of our creative and sexual life force. Journeying from the roots of our humanity to the crown of our spiritual nature we will explore how we are in relation to the movement of the vital energy through us and its expression in our relationships and in the world.

Supported by the resources of Open Floor movement, teachings from the chakra system and the commitment of on ongoing circle we will cultivate an attitude of curiosity and compassion as we offer what arises into motion. In the dance we meet the intelligence of the life force moving through us. We practice listening to it and following what unfolds. This expands our capacity for presence and opens doorways to our essential self, encouraging us to remember and align with what matters most to us. From there we can make a choice for embodied living where we are resourced enough to express the full range of our passion and creativity and be here now, in all our beauty.
