Movement Medicine is a synthesis of shamanic, therapeutic and devotional pathways creating gateways for meaningful, lasting healing and deep dreaming. The Mandala is a contemporary map to support, deepen and enrich your dance through life and provides a tool-kit of practical and subtle exercises relevant for meeting the challenges of the times we live in.
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to bring attention, creativity and the medicine of movement to the connections in your life. The subtle, strong and clear practices of Movement Medicine can deepen and enliven existing connections and create the conditions to explore new ways to be in relationship with life on all levels. What are you connected to? What matters to you in this life? What conditions support you to relax into who you are, be fully present and awake in yourself and be in conscious, clear and alive connection with others? We will explore these questions through the strong practices and subtle maps of Movement Medicine. Together we will co-create and dance into ceremony to explore and deepen these connections with ourselves, others, our communities, the living earth, unseen support and the Great Mystery. When we recognise, open to and receive the support and inspiration available to us within these circles of life, we create ground for acceptance of ourselves and each other and we can give what we are here to give in this lifetime. You will have the chance to dance with and map the circles of connection in your life to strengthen your own circle and bring a fresh perspective to your relationship with life on all levels. You will come away with a tool-kit of simple, practical, useful exercises to cultivate the garden of your life. All welcome.

The Alchemist’s Garden is Movement Medicine for the heart. The dancer inside you knows how to shape, energise, communicate and let go of whatever arises in the dance. For the dancer, all experience, be it physical, emotional or rooted in the mind, is another invitation to create with life.
The Alchemist’s Garden retreat reminds us of what e-motion (energy in motion) is for. When we bring together the kinaesthetic intelligence of the body, the consciousness of the embodied mind, and the instincts of our animal hearts, we become much more aware of the choices we are making either consciously or unconsciously. These choices affect our perception and therefore our experience of life.
The body was made to dance. And when we truly set the dancer inside us free, we will inevitably meet the places inside us that remain colonised by past pain or trauma. Our intention will be the transformation of the lead of our personal and ancestral histories into the gold of present moment awareness. We will work with the five chambers of the heart (awakening, integrity, surrender, gratitude and grace) as a medicine wheel. This alchemical process works directly with the physical structure of the body to strengthen our core and create energetic support for the heart. Through this process, we will dispel ancient shadows and recover the instinctive and intuitive power of the embodied heart.
Part of our work is the creation of a temple of installations. These installations will form the bedrock of the landscape we call The Alchemist’s Garden, in which we will spend the last night of the workshop in ceremony. In this garden of possibility, the dancer is able to create the appropriate alchemical mixture for purification, healing and dancing prayer for themselves and for all our relations.
