“Joy is light. And joy is the beginning of a great pilgrimage which ends in finding God. So go on -- without any fear, because existence always protects those who trust it. Relax, give yourself to existence and allow the joy to overwhelm you. Let it become your wings, so that you can reach to the stars. A joyful heart is very close to the stars.”~ Osho, The Razor's Edge #7
We cannot change what has happened to us in our lives, or what is happening in the world around us. But we can change how we respond to it. Doesn’t everything seem magnified these days, and isn’t it easy to get on a downward spiral, get overwhelmed, helpless, collapsed or anxious. You think if you feel it all, it's too much, yet when you don't feel it, you are partly shut down, not only to pain, but also to love and joy.
So here's the question: Is it possible to care, and feel the grief of these times… yet simultaneously to remember the beauty of life, love, connection, joy? Isn't that why we are here?
In this workshop you can begin to reclaim joy. Together with others you will have a chance to discover the power of joy, and learn the dynamic transforming power that is in our bodies; aliveness, presence, and the the heart's love and acceptance. When you bring awareness to the feelings and impulses in the body and allow them through dance expression, heart meditation, and sharing - something magnificent can happen.
And – it is fun! Join us! Bring the power of your joy here and now - through dance alchemy. You can change the inner experience – plus, that is what you are adding to this world, instead of more misery. When we do it together, it is easier…. And the joy is multiplied
