MOVING IN UNCERTAIN TIMES 7

All of us go through periods that seem particularly arduous, painful, stressful. Sometimes we have the impression that life is too demanding, that we can’t see the forest for the trees, that we are losing our ground and centre.
Sometimes values and people that we could rely on seem far away, references that we could trust in seem like vanished. What was true yesterday isn’t true today anymore. We lose confidence, courage. A future that we were trusting in becomes uncertain and threatening…

In these phases, the practice of conscious movement reveals itself as being a powerful resource.

Moving in Uncertain Times is a sequence of  7 Open Floor classes.

We will use the resources that our practice has to offer us, resources that we have been exploring during the last months.
This Saturday…

Let in Joy ! and En-Joy

We have been going through difficult, uncertain and especially unknown times.
We might be grieving somebody or something, we might feel numb after isolation and we might have forgotten what it means to be joyful, at ease, happy.
Or we might have hesitated to give ourselves permission to be joyful, to be at ease, to feel happy.

It feels sometimes almost indecent to let joy and ease enter our homes when grief and sorrow is at the threshold of our or other’s lives.
It might feel improper to be joyful, when people are fighting for their lives or becoming refugees.

And yet:

“Joy is possible even amid great labours—the labour of dying, the labour of birthing, and the labours between. We cannot force it. But when we create moments to breathe between labour pains, and surrender our senses to the present moment, notice the colours and light and feeling of being alive, here, together, joy comes more easily. In the face of horrors visited upon our world daily, in the struggle to protect our loved ones, choosing to let in joy is a revolutionary act. It gives us energy for the long labour.
Valarie Kaur, in : See No Stranger,
