Digesting – inner listening


Digesting – inner listening

The digestive system

The quality of its functioning tends to reflect many of our attitudes towards nourishment at all levels of existence – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual”  (Hartley, L. Wisdom of the Body Moving)

We continue to nourish, this time bringing the spotlight of awareness to the digestive organs. Our digestive process involves how we take in and break down our experiences until they can be absorbed by the body and soul. How do we accept or reject, digest, integrate and choose what we keep and what we need to release? It’s a constant process of purification.

Learn to make contact with the organs and listen to their needs. Actively create the conditions that will encourage their full and healthy functioning. You will be guided to move the polarities of attitudes relating to each organ – relaxed and tension, kindness and blame, gentleness and strength, weight and lightness, gravity and levity.

Dancing the organs gives them time to come alive to their own presence, so that they expand into their own space. The volume and aliveness of the organs then gives fullness and presence to the body and its movement!

Human Heart – Moving from the heart spreading


“The coronary artery, the vessels of which
literally ‘crown’ the top of the heart,
carries oxygenated blood first to the heart itself. The heart first nourishes
itself so that it may then nourish the rest
of the body. In nature itself, we too must
nourish ourselves first in order to sustain
the resources with which we can share
with others.” (Hartley, L. Wisdom of the Body Moving)

Take time to re-nourish your heart in this workshop. Our heart has learnt many ways to protect against, harden towards, or open itself in response to life. In fact, it holds much power and the key to moving forward, so let’s give it articulation and time.

Our organs can embody our emotional attitudes. When we shift our attention to listening to them, we can experience such feelings and attitudes. For the heart, we can move the polarities such as open and closed, offering and receiving, giving and taking, kindness and blame.  You will also be guided to experience your heart spreading throughout your whole body as you connect to nourishing your entire being, which in turn nourishes your environment and community.

Life no longer is when the heart stops beating. So come and celebrate the presence and life of this continually pulsing organ!
