As 2018 begins in this winter season, I can feel the pull of two distinct directions. One aligns with the natural rhythms of the season. It beckons me to honor the pause...to slow down and move inward in order to receive the blessings of the earthly dark. The other guides me outward, walking single file toward a new year's resolution that demands I take action NOW!
After years of exploring my relationship to the seasons I am beginning to notice a familiar rhythm that resides within this transition from autumn toward winter; a particular pulse or sensation that follows me year after year. It begins with a deep desire to slow down. To draw inward. To WAIT. To wait and LISTEN for the still, soft voice from the deep.
No longer a practice isolated to the dance floor, movement has become the compass that guides and supports me in inhabiting the wholeness of my life. This thread of embodied movement is my greatest ally and tool for transformation and healing. It is “the way”…the most life affirming and loving way I know.
