The infinite and divine in Direct Experience transform us and bring clarity to the presence of the Spirit. The mystical revealed in stillness, or movement, serves as a container for staying connected in the Spirit, recognizing it, as it is always here.
“Authentic Movement” and “Ecstatic Ritual Body Posture”, at times, flow naturally together, weaving a unity, reminding us of the Connection of the Spirit to the Body as we are the Manifested Spirit. Each method then becomes a form for learning and a sacred place where transformation can arise.
Any attempt to listen to the evolving process needs to be humble… the way we wait patiently if we want to follow movement unfolding spontaneously, intuitively and authentically or witness Energy Presence.
Participants in this workshop are invited to learn the role of the Body in experiencing two different forms through and in stillness, movement, and witnessing; to recognize cues and choices from within the experience and surrendering to it. From the mystery of the pure consciousness made present the way of the Spirit may be revealed.
In the first form we focus on the role of the Body in Experience through the evolving relationship between Mover and Witness. In the second, we hold a Ritual Posture accompanied by rhythmic sound, and in listening to the process of experiencing, surrendering to the experience, we may hear the awakening body as it becomes a sacred Spirit place and space for experiencing the world of the Spirit.
