About the Event

For this series we continue on from our Wānangas of 'Radical Imagination' and 'This is not a dress rehearsal'.

With themes of ~ Kotahitanga, Mana Motuhake, Tino Rangatiratanga, Whakamana. 

With themes of ~ change, being okay in the unknown, listening to your own intuition, community. 

We are in a movement of global deconditioning, 

and for those of us who know, we all agree that the change of consciousness needs to include the body. 

So whether you are just here to help support the change in your life, 

or it is time for you to do the internal decolonisation work, 

this class will support and help these transformations and these transitions. 

Supported by the wisdom of your body and our collective dance floor. 

Our Core movement resource that leads us through change is Dissolve, supported by Ground, Pause, Centre and towards and away. 

The Atua who are here to support are Tawhirimatea (Atua of change) and Hine Kauorohia (Atua of reflection).

For these weeks we practice relating to our self, to something bigger than us, and to other humans in and off the dfloor. 

During this term some of the threads that will be present in the teaching are;

Mahi a Atua - learning the purakau (stories) and embodiment of our Atua ( gods)

Whakamana ~ upholding the mana of each other.

Whanaungatanga - group body connection and belonging. 

Ringatoi - written and spoken word. 

Hautua Rongo - the practice of nonviolence, internally and externally. 

Mana Motuhake - Self-determination and a space of mana enhancement. 

Ahurutanga - Sacred Space. 

When we gather together in groups for long periods of time something sacred is created, this is now our container for this purpose. 

To weave those loose fibers together, to bind what needs to hold fast, to return to the earth that which is no longer required and to find other threads from other humans that may support your practice. 

To honour the sacred threads of this group body and to DANCE! full bodied towards ourselves and all that moves with us. 

We are stronger together, in all things. 

Movement as mihi, Movement as an acknowledgment of where we are and what arrives to move. 

We will be a committed group as best we can, turning up to each session ~ as best we can xox 

Bring a blanket and personal water bottle, if you have an offering to the altar know that you are welcome to add. 

We turn up for ourselves, to the process, in the comfort and discomfort,

in the grit and the grace with the same group of dancers each fortnight. 

Deepening the intimacy with yourself and your practice.
