What is Wisdom Bones?
Part movement class, part improvisational therapeutic theater, Wisdom Bones is a fun, dynamic healing modality for women seeking a profound circle of support that does more than just talk!
Come breathe, stretch, sound, move, touch, roll around on the floor....and bring your soft animal body alive in the company of a circle of women. Each circle culminates with an embodied sharing circle, giving each woman the opportunity to share her truth using movement, sound, and personal storytelling. A full cup of potent medicine!
Here, there is nothing to fix, and nothing to heal, simply an opportunity to be intimate with our own lived experience, however it feels today--rowdy or grieving or celebratory, timid or joyful or on fire. However we find ourselves, we are already whole, already present. Come with your curious heart, your tender heart, your shy heart. All hearts are welcome.
Let Your Body Tell Its Story
When we engage the body, we access a language that is older than our words. Expression through movement can connect us to ourselves, to the earth, and to each other in profound and mysterious ways.
Be lovingly Witnessed
In Wisdom Bones, we learn the skills of conscious, full-bodied witnessing. Witnessing deeply is AS important or perhaps even MORE IMPORTANT than the skills of expressing. When it's your turn to witness, you'll practice the skills of listening from a space of heart-centered non-judgmental awareness, anchored deep into the earth.
beginner's Mind Welcome, No Experience necessary
Here, we each tell vital truths, using not only our voices but also the movement of our bodies. Each participant brings her unique and valuable expression forward. In every circle we form a new piece of living art. There is no right or wrong thing to feel or to express. No experience with any kind of dance or movement practice is necessary. Your nervousness is welcome, and most every first-time participant is at least a little bit nervous....which almost always melts quickly into connection and ease.
