*Contemplative Dance Practice is a simple yet profound practice of moving meditation. It works with the innate intelligence of the body, psyche and imagination, and their drive for wholeness and integration. We pay attention to the body and invite it to lead into movement or stillness, suspending self-criticism and cultivation awareness. We may move, or be moved, into deeper streams of consciousness. As we practice, the artificial boundaries between body, psyche and spirit begin to dissolve and we discover aspects of ourselves and our lives from fresh perspectives. As we practice with others, we develop an appreciation for the diversity of human experience.
