About the event

Join us for our monthly Dancing Mindfulness and move through Energy that has been lingering around in your body to feel amazing and alive. You don't need to be a good dancer; instead, this is an opportunity to move your body however you want with no judgment!

One of my favorite ways to be in the moment is to bring my attention into my body with the modality of Dancing Mindfulness. It doesn't matter how you look while you move; rather the experience of presence while you are moving. This gives us the opportunity to self-regulate our attention to the conscious awareness of our immediate experiences in movement. We do so with an attitude of curiosity, openness, and acceptance. You are guided to move and express in certain ways while focusing your attention on your physical body and the Energy that is flowing as you move. You will have much less time to think about anything as you are in the creative essence of the moment.

There is an attitude of non-judgment that is very important. We can all move in whatever ways we want. Sometimes, I like to encourage people at some point to do the weirdest move they can think of when facilitating! It is just so much fun and you can really let your creativity flow. My prompts are not necessary to follow, but rather guidance for your personal experience. You have the freedom to make the practice your own.

We also want to be patient with ourselves and approach this practice with a beginner’s mind. Let ourselves be in awe of the body and the way it can move…really feel and experience the movement as if you’ve never done it before. This can bring about a sense of wonder like a child attempting to do something for the first time. We are no longer on autopilot and are now in the experience of the moment. Please know that we are not striving to look good or dance like we are at a party…instead, I will encourage you not to use any force or specific dance moves. Maybe you can feel the sound in your body and let it lead you.

We practice acceptance of the way our bodies want or need to move. The intention is to let go of your outside life situation and feel free! The joy I have seen and felt during a Dancing Mindfulness session is unparalleled. I, myself, felt like a child at the end of the 4-day training where I learned to facilitate. I looked around like I had never seen my environment before, I was filled with Joy, and felt fresh as if my life had just started anew!

I will be offering Dancing Mindfulness every month, usually the 4th Friday, throughout the year and we would love for you to join us! I’m so excited to share this space with you all and look forward to dancing, connecting, and making new friends! Families and kiddos are welcome!
