Movement to align with nature’s rhythm’s, honor existence, and refine intentions through embodiment ritual.
We circle together with presence, cultivating creative expression through a living vocabulary of movements, to share healing messages with the world. Offering ceremony, performance art, ritual theater, and education amongst community to inspire artful awareness, intentional movement and harmonic connection with our natural environment.
Activate our hopes and dreams through movement and deepen our communication with all beings through the language of our bodies. Inspire the inner voice to speak, and listen with our whole self in order to align with what we truly need. Reveal the messages our bodies share, and develop the gestures of our prayers. Formulate a vernacular of movements that correspond to various elements, and archetypes that hold resonance with our vital mission. Establish a meathod that all can utilize as a means to share personal process and manifestation. Open up intentional space for holistic connection and provide opportunities for the wider community to join together in peaceful collaboration
A circle is formed, the O, a vessel to hold potent focus on the health and harmony of our planet and beyond. Awareness is brought to a universal consciousness, the OM, and it is from this approach to motion, the language of all beings is revealed. Within this clearly focused container, we honor the forces of nature through various offerings, we dive into various practices of somatic communication, active listening, guided meditation, personal reflection, creative manifestation and discover the medicinal mechanics of movement for the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Attunment to the archetypes of the world, grants the opportunity to explore each personal expression of those energies within a safe container. This space has proven to allow for deep transformation, transmutation, and the gift of witnessing the humaneness within each of us. We open the portal to a dancing mystery school, where these methods of embodiment have emerged. OMotion has grown into a way of life, and it is through this integration, we activate a conscious communication with our creative life force through the universal language of dance.
