Open Floor Movement Practice is a lively, full-on dance inquiry:
How can we move and include it all – feelings, other people, thoughts, wild passions, limitations? Can we use movement to soften the tight spots in our tender hearts and stretch our capacity for relationship? What happens if we turn old repetitive thoughts into choreography for creative dances? We start small, end quiet. We respond to obstacles and mind the gaps. Ask, how am I now? What’s possible? Find direction. Add fire. Push the limit. Embrace paradox.
There's an essential movement language we all speak when we take these questions to the dance floor. We call on universal elements that are inherent in any moving body, such as breath, gravity, centering, expansion and contraction. This is the common ground that all embodiment practices share.
Experience an embodiment practice where movement heals. On the Open Floor we move and include the juicy moments of joyful release, as well as the challenging ones..this is how we learn to be true, fluid and whole.
No dance experience is necessary.
Only a desire to move and be moved is required.

Shamanic Journey work is a way to travel to the sacred realms of our consciousness.Using the drum beat as our guide, we dive into our inner worlds and connect to the power we have within to see and understand the magic and intelligence of the universe. This is a practice to become aware of our ability to percieve in an expanded way.
