THE WAY OF DANCING AT A DISTANCE....

You would be really welcome to join us from your home dancefloor; we hope to see you through the digital window and share movement practice in this way. Sending love and breath to you in this challenging time <3

*l i f e s e n s i n g - in the heart atelier*
with Morag Donnelly
Friday mornings
08.30am - 10:00 London time

This morning offering is a time to relax and gather with each other, to explore this body/presence centred ,movement drawing practice.
Guided into ways of moving with materials that we have, make or find, the quality of our touch and sensitive response. We can enrich and expand our language of expression and gesture, to be alive and spontaneous to the moment.
Through the play of our hands with marks , music , breath , water and textures of nature, we are encouraged to rest back , to soften , opening to an intimacy with our self and in turn with life. In the smudge , glide , pause and caress .. we empty out as the empty quiet of paper.
No previous drawing experience needed , all welcome.
Pre-registration essential
Limited spaces

Current Events

** September update **

Dear Dancing friends

We are returning! Re- Turning our rested bodies towards the dance floor and the artists studio. Things have been quiet here whilst august took us outwards, to be baked and soaked in english weather! We are continuing to offer some online classes during September and we are hoping that October will see our venues re-opening and the opportunity for us to be in rooms together.

For now we meet back here on the virtual village green to let you know whats happening on the dancingTao program.

We return to the virtual dance floors this week with Nikki Ashley holding the zoom space on Wednesday morning and afternoon - for our early morning practitioners and our afternoon clubbers for over 60’s and friends

 

Morag Donnelly will return on Friday morning of the 12th with Life Sensing

 

Simply Being with Richard Wiltshire will return in October - online, or dancing in rooms if that's possible then. We also hope to hold the first of our on-going series of Ecstatic Soul 5Hour sessions on October 10th in a venue - watch this space!

 

Check the Bookwhen page for exact details
Sending love out to you all wherever you may be
