This class was one of the most helpful things I have done in my life! To get time with each of the above emotions, to better understand how they shape me, and the stories I tell about them - for myself and others - and to do this with creativity, movement and the written word has gifted me with an insight into my self that helps me every single day, every single iteration. I am a better Mother, teacher, friend, and human because of this class.
For those who do not know I am talking about Brenē Brown's book 'Atlas of the Heart'.
It is not necessary to own the book to do this class but is highly recommended.
Emotional intelligence, embodiment, and creativity are the teachers of the class. I will be here to facilitate using both the Open Floor Curriculum and Manahau Embodied Movement. I am not here to teach you how to draw!
I am here to provide a brave space for us to look at our biology, biography, behavior and backstory around emotions.
Yes of course it can be a bit icky! a bit challenging, and a whole lot rewarding!!
It is all of that, and more.
The centre will hold, if and only if, we can feel those edges - Brenē Brown!
The creative process lends itself to helping us with our unconscious knowing, and for however, it works, our group body is here to also provide a space of practice. We will not get it right! but we can turn up to explore right relating.
'Without understanding how our feelings, thoughts and behaviours work together, it's almost impossible to find our way back to ourselves and each other. When we don't understand how our emotions shape our thoughts and decisions, we become disembodied from our own experiences and disconnected from each other!' -BB
What to expect in a class
Work with our continuums - Fixed~Fluid, Absence~Presence, Habit~Choice, Include~Exclude
Opportunity to turn up and do the work, and live well
and to dance in all to return again and again to CENTRE!
Every four (sometimes five) weeks we will work with a chapter of 'The Atlas of the HeART' and be curious. (as curious as you can)
All series will be called ' THE CENTRE WILL HOLD'
In the description, I will let you know what chapter we will be doing.
And... depending on our pace, on our flow will depend on what we do next.
I am open to source, creative play and to community x
If you would like to have a portal where you can experience all of the above infused with indigenous flavour, covered in creative process, and supported by Open Floor curriculum then come and join me x
See you in the zoom tiles soon.
Mauri ora x
Our chapter will be updated at the end of our latest series as it depends on what is alive in the group.
