Living Stories

Standard

What if your life was a story you were telling? What would you like it to say? All the choices we make, what we say, do and think have a powerful effect on the world around us.

In this post-Factual world in can be easy to become obsessive about the truth, and caught up in never ending arguments. Perhaps it’s because facts aren’t half as interesting as feelings.

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

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.
