A warm invitation to join us for an evening of creative exploration as we deepen our connection to ourselves, each other and the sacred.
A space to feel the nourishment and support we as women can offer each other, as we journey within an immersive environment held with captivating music and clear guidance.
City life and cultural conditioning means we are often left feeling empty, disconnected and desperate to fill the void somehow.
In this gathering we will explore our relationship to our body - connecting to our interoception and creatively engaging in the awareness of our kinesthetic, physical and emotional interior landscape.
Through the creativity and wisdom of our moving bodies, we will journey towards a greater sense of compassion for ourselves, empathy for others and collaboration. We will attune to our own deep intuition, gathering resources to support us in living an authentic life of purpose and potency.
The evening will be a combination of Movement Medicine practices and creative practices from Daria Halprin - co-founder of the Tamalpa Institute (a centre for movement-based expressive art therapy).
WHAT IS MOVEMENT MEDICINE
Movement Medicine is a practice which directs our awareness to our movement, thoughts and feelings, supporting us to get more in touch with who we really are. It is an active and embodied meditation practice, opening the way to deep internal reflection. Through the dance we are invited on a journey of personal empowerment, relationship with community and connection with the creative life force within and around us. Ya’Acov and Susannah Darling Khan, founded the School of Movement Medicine, integrating their experience with a lineage of practices such as Shamanism, 5Rhythms, Gestalt Psychotherapy and Family Constellations.
Mira trained at The School of Movement Medicine and intuitively weaves from the rich tapestry of her experience as a dancer, therapist and artist. She creates a safe and sacred space for you to let go into the transformative power of the dance. Mira has also completed the Movement Medicine Continuous Professional Development Level 1 Advanced Training in working with the Heart and the SEER Process (systemic essential energy retrieval) and Level 2 Advanced Training in working with Movement Medicine ritual and ceremony.
“Mira always creates a deeply-held and beautiful, energetically clear sacred space, where I can really honour and feel into my deepest self, my emotions, my body's inner wisdom. Her choice of music is always beautifully chosen - eclectic and honouring many traditions. I can always feel Mira's love and her commitment to helping me to honour and feel whatever it is that needs witnessing; enabling me to dance this lovingly into my body, or to gently release whatever is needed from my body.” - Georgia
“For me, the Women’s Circle is a warm, safe, womb-like space that I can be completely myself in. I can honour where ever I am physically, and how ever I feel, through the dance, encouraged by Mira’s grounded and supportive guidance. Mira holds this space with deep sensitivity and passion. I feel witnessed, able to connect to my womanhood, and share this precious time with other women in the dance. Thank you, Mira, for creating this beautiful circle that we, as women, can come home to.” - Susan
"With Mira's gentle support I've been able to transform old and limiting beliefs I held about myself. In the freedom and creativity in the dance, I'm discovering more of my true potential and evolving into a place of owning and shining my own light." - Asija
