A few hardcore Feldenkrais® students came to join in one evening of Conscious Movement through Dance. As the circle began sharing it was explained that the evening wasn’t a Feldenkrais® focused event for their benefit. They chose to stay and take part in a movement with the intention to connect conscious awareness and action in a dance pattern. This concept had been explored with the other participants for a several nights before. This evenings focus was putting patterns of isolated movements into a bigger flow of patterns to experience.
As the larger focused movement pattern was taken up off the floor into big movements a smile crossed their faces. They mentioned that they had never taken their Feldenkrais® lessons off the floor, therefore never experienced them in an upright action! Beautiful moment that encouraged the remaining group members to smile.
Exploring without rules is learning!
Many thanks to the Church of Truth in James Bay for their support in hosting this wonderful series and letting us play with Conscious Movement in Dance!
