Express Yourself:  Sovereignty and Power

Express Yourself: Sovereignty and Power

Our body is our home base.  It is the way in which we know all that we know.  It is the way we share ourselves with the world.  Being more aware of the sensations and information of the body and our possible responses to these experiences helps us to learn how to better cope with the world and the unexpected!

The intention we will be exploring in this Express Yourself is "Sovereignty and Power."

What is the quality of your movement when you act with Power or with the opposite?

How do you move through Space as a self-governing  being or as the opposite?  

Although this event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, the intention is inspired by a collaboration with Suzan Franck LSCW and Tricia Dietrich as part of their four-month exploration into the Feminine Shadow Archetypes.  In the May - August Express Yourself events we will use movement to explore various of the feminine shadow qualities, reclaiming parts of our birthright as human beings that have been minimized and sometimes lost to us, regardless of gender.

Express Yourself is an opportunity to develop a deeper connection with your whole body.  It is a safe place and a committed time for you to gently explore how, where, when and what your body wants to express.     In this time and place, you have the opportunity to practice what you - body, mind, spirit -  desire to practice so that you can more resiliently choose when and how to express yourself in your every day life.

$20 payable to Victoria on night of event.  Checks made out to Embodiment LLC.

Express Yourself:  Wrath and Aggression

Express Yourself: Wrath and Aggression

Our body is our home base.  It is the way in which we know all that we know.  It is the way we share ourselves with the world.  Being more aware of the sensations and information of the body and practicing our possible responses to these experiences with support in a safe environment helps us to learn how to better cope with the world and the unexpected! 

The intention we will be exploring in this Express Yourself is "Wrath and Aggression."   We will be taking our time to slowly and safely explore our experiences of the range of the emotion of Anger including Wrath, and we will be exploring possible active expressions of our emotions.

"It is important to let ourselves feel outrage rather than sanitize this raw emotion with spiritual speak or shame it as ignoble.  Yet if we harbor or act out of anger, it almost always poisons us, diminishing our credibility and harming others.  The late Thai Buddhist teacher Ajahn Chah recommended that we "catch emotions in the net of mindfulness, and then examine them before reacting."  Anger is a warning that something is invading and overwhelming us.  If we don't take heed, disorder and destruction will follow."
- From Don't Worry Be Angry

Although this event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, the intention is inspired by a collaboration with Suzan Franck LSCW and Tricia Dietrich as part of their four-month exploration into the Feminine Shadow Archetypes.  In the May - August Express Yourself events we will use movement to explore various of the feminine shadow qualities, reclaiming parts of our birthright as human beings that have been minimized and sometimes lost to us, regardless of gender.

Express Yourself is an opportunity to develop a deeper connection with your whole body.  It is a safe place and a committed time for you to gently explore how, where, when and what your body wants to express.     In this time and place, you have the opportunity to practice what you - body, mind, spirit -  desire to practice so that you can more resiliently choose when and how to express yourself in your every day life.

Express Yourself: Shedding the Tame

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Our body is our home base.  It is the way in which we know all that we know.  It is the way we share ourselves with the world.  Being more aware of the sensations and information of the body and our possible responses to these experiences helps us to learn how to better cope with the world and the unexpected!

Using voice, art, movement and verbal processing, you will be invited to release layer upon layer of "shoulds", "have tos", "cants" and "don'ts".  

I invite you to join me for an opportunity to escape from your standardized modes of behavior, to practice letting go of the "tame" suit we all wear!

Express Yourself: Passion and Desire

Our body is our home base.  It is the way in which we know all that we know.  It is the way we share ourselves with the world.  Being more aware of the sensations and information of the body and our possible responses to these experiences helps us to learn how to better cope with the world and the unexpected!

The intention we will be exploring in this Express Yourself is "Passion and Desire."  We will be playing with movement inspired by these ideas:  trusting in our support, standing our ground, giving ourselves permission to be consciously aware of what we want, reaching for our desires and pulling the object of our passions into our personal space.

Although this event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, the intention is inspired by a collaboration with Suzan Franck LSCW and Tricia Dietrich as part of their four-month exploration into the Feminine Shadow Archetypes.  In the May - August Express Yourself events we will use movement to explore various of the feminine shadow qualities, reclaiming parts of our birthright as human beings that have been minimized and sometimes lost to us, regardless of gender.

It is the time when we will all bring ourselves closer to each other
closer to building a structure that is unique within ourselves
Because we have finally come to Peace within ourselves."
