“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on.” Hal Borland
FLOWING: Turning ourselves around to see our present situation from different angles. Where am I right now in my life? Who am I being, and what am I doing? Who is around me? And what is my place in this world? Knowing all of this helps us to not be determined by our present circumstances and instead identify our starting point.
Feeling which parts of our heart are calling us to be more present and which emotions are calling to be met in our body. Seeing with acceptance and touching with loving kindness those aching and broken parts.
Facing our regrets, guilt, and blame over what is behind us with courage in one hand and compassion in the other in order to find hope for what’s ahead.
Changing the way we move can change the way we feel can change the way we see can change the way we think.
Releasing from the roost, letting go on a cellular level so that we are sure we’ll end up with enough empty space inside ourselves for something new, something different.
Celebrating all the things that make us feel alive, not all of them pretty or light. Expanding capacity for pleasure. Dancing to relieve our soul.
What is the best that can happen?
Thanks to wisdom, we can bow to the ending that is dancing towards us. Thanks to the amazing grace, we can open up to forgiveness. Thanks to our presence, we can rest in the abundance of emptiness.
“Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just ….. start.” Ijeoma Umebinyuo
In this session on the first day of the year, we come knowing that we are still going to have to face the unknown, the uncertainty in this year that is opening before us. We can find in our feet, in our body, in our movement, in our anchorage, this relationship to what is renewed, to this updating, and explore the path of inspiration, opening ourselves to the new possibilities.
It involves physical engagement, it requires interaction with the world around us, and those with whom we connect. It’s a place of turning into action, facing issues, it’s a place of expression but also growth.
There are, there will be places this year with doubts, with desires to give up, so we need to cleanse, to purify our physical body, our mind. We consciously choose to let go again and again. So we can be ready to expand our potential, to shine in our communities, in the place of togetherness, and, to be fully who we are, through our movement and aliveness. And then we land before to take off again, we land supported by the previous Rhythms and their harvest in some emptiness, wisdom and faith, completion and content. Whatever will knock on the door, our body heart, mind soul and spirit are ready to welcome it.
