How can we welcome, with curiosity the full spectrum of our hearts?
How do we move with what is true in our hearts and still keep on going?
How can we deepen our understanding of the medicine of fear, conflict and grief so that we can authentically surrender, welcome our joy and gratitude and live life with grace and compassion?
Big questions call for deep and careful work. We will draw upon the map of the Movement Medicine Chambers of the Heart to navigate this rich and sometimes rocky terrain. Giving particular attention to grief and conflict as gateways to more understanding of our humanity, harnessing their vital life energy so they become our trusted allies.
We will invite the Wise Elder, the Dancing Warrior and the Fool to support us to accept our condition as it is, have a cheeky chuckle as we do, relax into our next steps and take them with courage and authenticity.
This journey, complete in itself, is also an introduction to the 5 day intensive in April in which we will deepen our understanding of conflict and grief as a resource for life. Movement Medicine weaves together the exhilaration of free dance with the depth ofmovement meditation and the spirit of shamanic practice.

Rosie is an experienced and skilled teacher. Her heart medicine has grown from her years of living with and learning from grief. She first danced with Susannah & Ya’Acov in 1990 and her teaching is informed by this long and rich relationship to movement, her understanding of our shared humanity, and a fierce love of the earth and all its inhabitants.
