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!

Why do we need to RETURN TO OUR SENSES?

th-1

“Lose your mind and come to your senses.”
Frederick Salomon Perls

Dance movement Psychotherapist and Movement Matters facilitator, Tali Rose, invites you to think about re-connecting back to your senses through movement workshops, designed to re-align you to your FULLER sense of self.

Today, our lives are jam packed with technology which means for those periods of time in front of a screen, it is essential to create equal time to feel relaxed and regenerated so that you feel your most effective and most wonderful selves. Ensuring we create this time for ourselves is becoming more important as the side effects of spending too much time on the computer can lead to feeling stressed more than we dare sometimes admit!

As you tap into the laptop, computer or phone, your lives become filtered through a flat screen. It takes you away from the wider possibilities available. If you can give yourselves the chance to re-open your sensing centres, you can remember just how rich this life is. Opening the body, through the senses workshops I offer brings to your closer attention the textures already featuring in the environment, to the scale of objects from tiny to enormous, to the lines and curves, shadows and light, the vividness of colours and the beauty of sounds.

You can then find ways to integrate this into your daily life…How often do you hear the birds at the same time as texting? Or feel the texture of the chair as you write your next e-mail? Doing so BRINGS YOU BACK TO THE PRESENT MOMENT…rather than jumping out of yourselves and into a dis-embodied experience. In this way you can really INHABIT your body, your temple, returning to the whole point of why we are here.

IT MAKES SENSE because…

  • as you open your senses it makes you feel more AWAKE to life, energised and clear
  • encourages you to discover new ways of moving and listening as you follow your line of movement
  • you feel happier and more relaxed as you enjoy the experience of lessening the mind and experience the world through movement and resting

Movement Matters Classes are every Friday. Just drop in, choose a sense you wish to explore this May and give yourself some special time. Quote”returning to my senses” via email to receive your first movement class for half price £6!
