Contemplative practices like conscious dance may seem radical in this fast paced culture of accomplishment, yet they are the way toward building our capacity to slow down and enter a process of consciously listening and connecting with our inner world
“…by the very fact of living, an individual is in constant motion. The great challenge is to make that movement efficient, smooth, comfortable, full of peace, and not turbulent, unbalanced, and distorted.” Thomas Hanna
"All of us need to metabolize the trauma, work through it, and grow up out of it with our bodies, not just our thinking brains. Only in this way will we heal at last, both individually and collectively. That healing is the purpose of this book." - Resmaa Menakem
Today, with all that is happening in the world and in your own life, ask yourself what is having the greatest impact on you...what imprint sticks most deeply? Take a moment to listen to how this may be shaping the way you feel, the way you think, the way you carry yourself in this moment.
This is INTO-ME-SEE. This is something that we are wired to do....to feel what is, to let the feelings move through consciously, to allow our presence to bless each hurt, and to listen to our hearts in their response. This is the call of NOW. If we don't face and feel, nothing will change and we will fall off the cliff that we are creating with our eyes WIDE open.
