spirit of the dancing heart

a school of  movement medicine journey of vibrancy & courage through the heart

How can we welcome, with curiosity the full spectrum of our hearts?
How do we move with what is true in our hearts and still keep on going?
How can we deepen our understanding of the medicine of conflict and grief so that we can authentically surrender, welcome our joy and gratitude and live life with grace and compassion?

Big questions call for deep and careful work. We will draw upon the map of the Movement Medicine Chambers of the Heart to navigate this rich and sometimes rocky terrain. Giving particular attention to grief and conflict as gateways to more understanding of our humanity, harnessing their vital life energy so they become our trusted allies.

We will invite the Wise Elder, the Dancing Warrior and the Fool to support us to accept our condition as it is, have a cheeky chuckle as we do, relax into our next steps and take them with courage and authenticity.

Movement Medicine weaves together the exhilaration of free dance with the depth of movement meditation and the spirit of shamanic practice. We will use the tools available in this to deepen our understanding of conflict and grief as a resource for life.

Spirit of the Dancing Heart 5 Day Intensive  - future dates to be confirmed

On this 5 day journey there will be ample time to explore the intersection and deep connection between grief and conflict, to reflect, digest, integrate and build a community of enquiry. A community in which we can support each other to find the wholeness that lives in the relationship between these often neglected landscapes. 

Self reflection, community support, inclusivity and of course the magic of the dance will be our companions on this journey.

This workshop is taught by Rosie with Ben Yeger, fellow faculty teacher at the School of Movement Medicine. 

Ben is a Drama Therapist and highly experienced group facilitator. He has studied with Ya’Acov & Susannah Darling Khan since 2000 and integrates the work of Joanna Macy into his facilitation. Ben is the Director of Moving Conflicts working creatively to transform conflict. See his TEDx talk ‘Humanisng the Enemy’ tedxwarwick.com/talks and movingconflicts.org

Rosie's heart medicine has grown from her years of living with and learning from grief.

No prior movement experience is required, simply your attention and curiosity. This work counts as prerequisites for further study with the School of Movement Medicine.
