Dancing the Unknown - Moving Body, Heart and Mind

Dancing the Unknown - Moving Body, Heart and Mind

How can we find stillness?

In the middle of our lives, where so often we feel pulled about by inner and outer events … where demands seem to come from all sides continuously … where feelings, impressions, ideas, even ideals keep us charged and running … Where is stillness to be found?

Is it just essential to pull down the shutters at times, totally withdraw, keep everything out - or are there other possibilities? Are movement and stillness opposites? 

In this workshop we will have phases of movement, and phases of meditation, following on from one another. Easy physical improvisational exercises will help us to become more present and mindful, and at the same time open us up to more light and joy. This will then enrich our attention within and outside of meditation to be saturated with deeper interest and the spirit of discovery. 

The workshop is called ‘Dancing the Unknown’ because we discover that every movement we make leads us to somewhere we do not know!

Jayachitta has been interested in the intrinsic connection between joy, freedom and meditation for many years - on and off the cushion. She particularly enjoys deepening this research with other meditators, and keeps on learning and discovering more aspects of this work.

This workshop is open to all, whether you have previous experience in meditation, or dance, or improvisation or not. It invites all levels of ability.

This is a two-day workshop Saturday and Sunday 30/31st March 10.30 - 4.30 both days.

Suggested Donation £65

Please bring vegetarian/vegan food to share for lunch.
