Consciousness and Bliss

Standard

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”
~ T.S. Eliot, The Four Quartets

Movement as medicine

Standard

“Movement is medicine and I trust that if you put your psyche in motion it will heal itself.”
~ Gabrielle Roth

The body is made for movement, movement is your first language. It is your first experience of expression or interacting with the world around you. A movement based healing practise takes you back to the beginning; beyond the thoughts and words is the primal power of the body, present, powerful, real. When you change the way you move, you change the conversation you are having with life, and as your body changes your mind and heart are moved with it. When you change everything changes. Your body is more than a temple it is a living breathing prayer.
