Life is the dance and you are the dancer.
— Eckhart Tolle

Rhythm and dance is in our nature - it is shared by just about every culture. An Embodied Freedom experience is like a modern remix of tribal traditions of community, growth, celebration and gratitude! Physical embodiment creates emotional intelligence, and we develop emotional intelligence by being at home in our bodies.

  • Discover what stops you from fully accepting yourself, right here, right now.

  • Loosen your grip. Let go of ideas of how to move, how to be. meals a day.

  • Notice yourself. What is it to be a Human ‘being’... really?

Warm up your winter by coming to explore what it truly means to be YOU. Visit yourself and uncover your own unique gifts among the caring support of a connected group. This workshop incorporates Possibility Management tools alongside Open Floor Movement practice. 


What is Open Floor movement practise?

The power of noticing is the beginning of being… with that your being comes alive.
— Sybille Feint

Open Floor is a lively meditation practice that builds muscular and emotional intelligence. It is a dance floor discovery zone where we move and include:  good days and tough ones, passion, hesitance, joy, sorrow, births, deaths and everything in between.  There are no steps to learn and no way to do it wrong.
