To cultivate a less stressful way of being in the world, in Tuning In we practice tuning the instrument of body-mind-spirit through the heart of inspiration and creative movement , letting go of what doesn’t serve us and welcoming in new inspiration.
In any given Tuning In workshop, we might explore:
Moving from a felt-sense
Writing with the body
Sounding from the heart
Cultivating a body with ease
Resting in the new view
Join us in Tuning In to rejuvenate, relieve stress and find new, more regenerative pathways of relating to our changing world.
As a student of awareness and dance, I like to explore art & presence through creative movement and visualization.
One of the ways we explore the creative body in these workshops is through envisioning the Body as paintbrush and Space as canvas. The Tao of Painting mentions that if an artist wants to paint in the way of simplicity, they should study the lines of complexity ~ “Bury your brush again and again.”
Or, we might explore the image of following a moving thread of presence and felt-sense:
The feeling is infinite
The instrument is limited
How can I find my way?
What does freedom feel like in this moving body instrument?
We move, we write, we find our sound shapes, and follow the moving thread
in the maze of what it seems like and how it actually can be~Exploring Art & Presence workshops are a great way to access the artist within and break through self-imposed barriers to the freedom of creative moving and being.
Movement, rhythm, melody, feeling, and expression are doorways into the Mystery of the Heart of Love.
There are many schools of meditation. And inside the schools, there are many steps. Things we feel, concentrate upon, learning to feel within our hearts. Sometimes we find our heart is closed. Then what can we do?
Sometimes we start with a movement or with a feeling. Sometimes we use rhythm as foundation, or melody. Any kind of feeling is fuel for this fire of Love.
In Expressing the Secret Heart seminars, we often use
Fun & Humor
Exploration of Movement
Writing and Sound
Poetry from the Mystics
to explore our connection to what we hold sacred through our body-instrument, our feelings and our senses. Expressing the Secret Heart workshops are an invitation to join a deeply embodied contemplative practice. It doesn’t matter what kind of shape you think you are in or not in. Jump in to try something that is simply fun, a way of learning, and an expression of our secret heart.
