We are living in some wild times on this planet and it seems to me that the more I open my body, heart and spirit to this very human experience that I'm living, the more it simply breaks me open. The old stories and programs that worked to comfort many of us for so very long are falling away and the call to action, compassion and a turning to Love is imminent.

Love, however, is a wild f'kin beast- it cannot be chained, compartmentalized or even defined. It is a living pulse, that seems to have broken free from its cage and is having its way with us. And unlike the squishy, cuddly, makes me feel so warm and gooey, love that we were brought up on like Disney films, vegemite on toast or peanut butter and jelly- this pulse is moving upon the earth and through those of us who are willing to let it in like a wildfire- and its here to burn away what no longer serves and break each of us open to the truth of who we are.

We may not have control over who rules our countries, or who makes decisions for our global climate crisis- however, we do have the power to choose how we meet this force of love that has been unleashed when it comes pounding on the door of our hearts, demanding to be let in.

Movement, dance, expression of our true feelings and gifting oneself with the space to unleash that wild pulse within can be fun and- these are also absolutely key in training ourselves to meet whatever ways life is here to break us open by expanding our willingness, awareness, resilience and our capacity to feel what is moving within and around us.

I will most certainly meet you there.

What is Dancing Freedom?

Dancing Freedom is a somatic, ecstatic and shamanic dance practice that supports the re-emergence of embodied wholeness. By gathering in the community we dance an elemental wave, tapping into the fundamental building blocks that we are made of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. Together, we co-create a safe space for Y(our) true self to experience full-bodied expression.

In this movement practice, we dance in a ceremony; we give ourselves permission to enter the mythic, to work with our intent and welcome our felt senses to weave a new reality for ourselves and all our relations.

All bodies, abilities and backgrounds are welcome. The practice supports physical fitness, emotional and spiritual healing, personal and leadership development and the ability to create and sustain healthy relationships.

Note: no entry after 8:00pm, doors open at 7:30 for warm up and we circle up to commence our dance ritual at 7:45.
