It takes courage to be fully in our lives and stay present with life events and emotional turmoil. When we mention Chaos it often gives rise to feeling out of control, which can be scary. If we meet this fear of surrendering, of letting go of control, there is a possibility of receiving the gifts of this Rhythm in our bodies. The crazy thing is, when we give space for the places we fear, or the places we don’t like to go, we can receive great wisdom.
The word Chaos comes from Greek Khaos, meaning vast chasm or void. According to Greek mythology, chaos was the source out of which everything was created. Gabrielle Roth describes it as meaning “empty space or abyss… a positive space loaded with potential, free of all strictures and structures of the ordinary world.”
During the weekend we will focus on how we surrender, how we release our bodies to this powerful energy. We will explore how we let go physically with our bodies, where we feel stuck and inflexible and discover which parts are ready surrender to the dance. We will work from the physical and allow ourselves to gently open up to our deeper essence - the richness often overlooked, or buried underneath limiting beliefs and ideas about ourselves and life.
*The term Crazy Wisdom comes from the Buddhist tradition and is also found in Shamanism.
