Root & Rise – A Master Class with Jo Hardy

Root & Rise – A Master Class with Jo Hardy

“This time of huge global challenges can be a radical period of re-imagination and renewal….. in the midst of chaos the particular thread that gives each of our lives genuine meaning can reveal and become a contribution to the re-imagining and reweaving of the world.” ~ Michael Meade  We are so much more than we believe ourselves to be, personally and collectively. Opening beyond the seduction of self-limitation is an act of surrender to the dance of life coming through us. What makes me feel most alive and for what am I passionate? What supports my aliveness and gives me the strength to say yes? What blocks my capacity to say yes? This masterclass will be a fun, lively, sweaty dance journey through which we will experience the profound possibilities of self-discovery through movement. A space of fluid flow will be awakened allowing us to explore these questions with creativity and freshness. We will discover how to deeply root into ourselves with radical self acceptance, self love and presence and experiment with how to meet each other from greater openness - as an essential ingredient to a strong rooted base. This rooting gives us a ‘ground’ that enables us to rise, explore and value our unique contribution to the reweaving of the world, however seemingly big or small that contribution.

 

Open Floor

Open Floor

Open Floor is a healing conscious dance and movement practice that invites us to allow, move with, explore and express all that holds us back, to move and include the juicy times of joyful release, as well as the challenging moments. We dance to have fun and discover a new way of moving through life. Using universal movement principles, such as breath, grounding and centring, the aim is to become more embodied and at home for this beautiful ride of life, present for anything and everything – loving, losing, learning, creating, colliding, connecting - transforming our experiences into creative fuel for our contribution to life.
