Movement Medicine is a dance based movement meditation practice that reconnects you to the wisdom of inhabiting your heart and the liberation of knowing and trusting who you are and what you have to bring to this world.
Movement Medicine blends physical, spiritual, therapeutic and shamanic understanding and is deeply rooted in our connection to the natural word and the cycles of life. This is a dance meditation practice for the times we live in, bringing support and expression to body, heart and mind.
The Movement Medicine mandala provides a map of the resources available in this practice:
The 4 directional lines represent the elements, earth, air, fire and water, each one a huge resource and teacher for life.
The spheres along the top represent the 9 gateways to our human experience and oportunities for growth: body, heart and mind; past, present and future; then fulfilment, interconnection and realisation.
The 5 globes along the bottom are the possibilities of connection - self, other, community (including all of life on earth), ancestors and descendents, then the spirit and the divine (or as I understand it the place where we simply exist in connection to everything)
In the centre are the wings of yin and yang, and at the centre of these the empty space where we experience everything and nothing.
Movement Medicine was developed (and continues to grow and adapt as they do) by Susannah and Ya'Acov Darling Khan, to find out more about them and read in depth information on Movement Medicine and all it has to offer see schoolofmovementmedicine.com
