Waves of Transformation

While riding the wave of life you must also practice stillness so you can flow with, rather than resist the wave’s motion.

If you want your movement experience to transport you to another world literally then discover our “Creative waves of Transformation Movement Retreats. Our lives are continually in motion, buoyed by the wave that is the universe’s flow. As the wave rises and falls, we are carried forward, through life’s high and low points. The universe’s flow may take us to a place in life where we would rather not be. As tempting as it can be to fight the direction and size of this wave that propels us, riding the wave is intended to make life easier. When you ride the wave, your life can evolve naturally and with minimal effort. Riding the wave, however, is not a passive experience. It is an active process that requires you to be attentive, cantered, and awake. You must also practice stillness so you can flow with, rather than resist the wave’s motion.

Because life is dynamic and always changing, it is when we try to make the wave stand still or resist its direction that we are likely to get pulled under by its weight. If you try to move against the wave, you may feel as if you are trapped by it and have no control over your destiny. When you reach a low point while riding the wave and find your feet touching bottom, remember to stay standing so that you can leap forward along with the wave the next time it rises. Trying to resist life’s flow is a losing proposition and costly because you waste energy.

Riding the wave allows you to move forward without expending too much of your own efforts. When you ride the wave, you are carried by it and your head can “stay above water” as you go wherever it takes you. It can be difficult to trust the universe and let go of the urge to fight life’s flow, and you may find it easier to ride the wave if you can stay calm and relaxed. Riding the wave will always take you where you need to go.

“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life” - Pablo Picasso

Workshops with movement and Art.

The First “Moving Beatitude” beckons us to find our home in the breathing “‟This beautified could be said to link the two paths of negative and creative by virtue of emptying and finding one’s home in the breath thus leading us to our empowerment.”

The Second “Moving Beatitude “allows us to feel our confusion and our mourning and to be re-united to the Source that brings all comfort. In our returning we once again feel the warm embrace of love...

The Third “ Moving Beatitude” Softening that which is rigid within, that which has dried up, leaves us more open to the real source of power-God acting through all of nature, all earthiness. It is our invitation to take time from our busyness and to allow nature to heal our being, through emptying our minds. Movement and Arts therapy is based on the belief that the process of engaging creatively in drama, movement or art-making, within a therapeutic relationship, supports changes in the client’s inner world, and helps them to develop a more integrated sense of self, with increased self-awareness and acceptance.
