Soul Motion is a conscious dance practice and movement meditation. In a safe environment we practice listening to our body sensations, images and emotions. We follow our own authentic movement impulses. We use the perception of breath to strengthen our presence and consciousness for every new moment.
In the dance with others we receive inspiration and discover new expression possibilities for ourselves. We recognise that motion is an all connecting element of aliveness.
Supported by music of all genres and the great sound of silence we use moments of delicate movements as well as big dance to reconnect to the inner divine source in us.
What is happening in a Soul Motion class or workshop?
In Soul Motion you are guided to put your attention on certain correlations. This can be an inner-body inquiry like the relationship between different body parts, the sensation of grounding or breath awareness. Also the correlations between dancers and the space around them can be a topic to explore. This way we learn a lot about ourselves and we practice using awareness and mindfulness to become more relaxed and happy in the dance of the everyday.
Each class or workshop starts with alone time. Here we reconnect to our body's sensations and become attuned to what moves us in this moment. Once we have arrived "home" we add the conscious perception of space around us, including the other dancers. We begin to attune not only to our inner source but also to the aliveness, humanity and moving shapes around us in a 360 degree view.
The Soul Motion experience consists of 4 relational "Landscapes". The inner dance alone (Dance Intimite), the relationship between two dancers (Dance Communion), the dance of connectedness in a group (Dance Community) and the relationship to the All-One, the bigger life, which also includes the dance of the every day (Dance Infinite).
Some important elements that characterize Soul Motion are: Orbit Orientation (the 360 degrees awareness), Echo Inspiration (being inspired/challenged by the movement expressions of other dancers), Pause Presence (the art of pausing in the midst of motion to begin again)
