Moving Through Life

Dancing in Dwight Way studio, 1975It’s all about movement – movement of our bodies, movement in our lives, movement in the world around us. There are many ways to move, many ways to inspire movement in ourselves and others.

Moving and dancing alone and together, we can connect deeply with ourselves, with each other, with earth, with spirit. Our relationships with our bodies are reflected in our relationship with the world around us.

Coming to sacred ground in the body, searching beneath our conditioned ways of being, paying attention to our bodies’ messages, we can open ourselves to new ways to move and play, dance and celebrate, open our spirits to move in the world.

Beyond the movement of our bodies, there is movement in our lives, change and growth in how we interact with ourselves and with others and with the world around us. There is movement in taking action and making choices, in the small steps in each moment that move us towards the possibilities that our visions and dreams have imagined. And there is the movement of finding our way around and through obstacles and challenges, as well as dancing with the unexpected plot twists that develop along the way. There is even movement in stillness, where the gentle expansion and release of breath brings us back to center.
