One monthly exploration of embodied aliveness and presence. No dance experience necessary. Everyone Welcome.

Why mindfulness? The more aware we are the more choices we have.

Why dance? Because life is movement, we can not control the music of life but we can learn resources to move well with change. These explorations build confidence, emotional resilience. We can experience moments of letting go and release, freedom and happiness. To dance free is to live with joy.

Bringing movement and mindfulness together... Open Floor movement explorations provide the opportunity to fully embody the wholesome effects of mindfulness, to learn in the bones of our being that we can move & include it all - the joy, grief, light & shadow of being fully human. From this state of openness we find the capacity to welcome difficulties as creative opportunities.

While each of the sessions will stand independently, the hope and motivation is to build a supportive group that offer spaces to transform unhelpful habitual patterns into new ways of being that nurture ourselves, our communities and the positive changes we want to see in the world.
