MOvement & Relationship”
With Christa Cocciole and Morag Donnelly
– How do you keep moving with freedom and ease when emotions are challenging your boundaries?
– How do you embrace the strength and wisdom of your vulnerability without closing off?
– How do you navigate intimacy without losing sight of your Self?
The depth at which we can meet each other on the dance floor has the potential to invigorate, bringing a vitality of being met and seen. It can also evoke the opposite or ignite a longing for more connection – on and perhaps off the dance floor.
This is a safe and respectfully guided space to drop in to your senses and open an enquiry into relationships. We will provide a space to reflect and grow with the challenges we experienced in our combined 50 years of conscious movement practices (5 Rhythms and other).
We will be exploring how we navigate what arises in the dance and the mysterious chemistry in connections. Through experiential investigation and discussions, we will dig into themes such as being seen, finding the permission to let go and sharpening our felt sense. In doing so, we will strengthen our awareness of constantly fluctuating boundaries and learn to dance with them.
Morag combines art, movement and the senses to emphasise the importance of seeing and a deepening empathy, intimacy with ourselves and life. She is a facilitator with the Dancing Tao and the founder of “Lifelines”, her offering in which she enables and encourages others with her relaxed, tender, open manner and intuitive nature, creating a loving space of safety and freedom.
Christa naturally inspires others by her contagious enthusiasm for movement, her warm, open approach and her refreshing clarity and precision when exploring boundaries. She integrates her background as a systemic therapist and dancer / choreographer as well as spiritual practice in an approach she coined “Radical Presence – moving with playful compassion”
