Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

5-Rhythms, Meditation with Jo Hardy

Sun 28 - Sat 10 Aug 2024

Conscious Dance - 5 Rhythms and Open Floor

We are all born with the freedom to dance, but for many of us this freedom is buried under the demands of everyday life. Conscious dance is both a simple and profound medicine that gets us out of our heads and into our body and feet, offering a pathway to deeper self-awareness, acceptance, healing, creativity, sensuality, playfulness, openness and reconnection to our self and to each other. During this course we will learn to listen to trust and love our body more fully, surrendering bit by bit to its unique dance. We will discover our body loves to dance and most probably find ourselves making moves we never knew we could make. 

Through the dance we release patterns and undigested emotions into creativity and lighter energy. There will be space for sharing experiences, writing, meditations, visualization, and laughter. A great sense of support and connection opens as we witness, and are touched by each other. What you bring will also weave with our journey and there may be time for some individual attention.

No steps to learn and no prior dance experience required. All welcome.
