“Too many people are hungry not because there is dearth of food. It is because there is dearth of love and care in human hearts.”
-Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

We are relational beings, living in a relational universe. Embodying relational intelligence and becoming fluid in the relational field can be soul food that softens and warms our hearts, and delivers us into our most fulfilling, joyful and meaningful lives.

The dance floor is a wonderful place to explore this sacred mystery of Self and Other, as well as that mysterious place where the sense of separation finally dissolves into Oneness.

Through Open Floor Movement Practice we will develop skills in the moving embodiment of four basic hungers or aspects of relationship:

  • The Hunger for Solitude and relationship to Self
  • The Hunger for Connection and relationship to Another
  • The Hunger for Belonging and relationship to Group
  • The Hunger for Spirit and relationship to Source

Our task as humans is to practice the fine art of balancing all four of these hungers in our lives. Each offers deep medicine and soul food. When we feel out of balance in any one of these areas, we generally feel out of sorts. Most of us are strong in some areas and weak in others.

What are you hungry for in your life right now?
Let’s dance together and find out.
All warmly welcome. Come just as you are.

This workshop counts as 15 hrs towards Open Floor teacher training pre-requisites or elective study.
