Groundedness Part 1

« The ground is both a metaphor and a felt sense. As a metaphor, it means to be in touch with reality. As a felt sense, it refers to feeling our center of gravity low in the belly and experiencing a deep silence, stability, and connection with the whole of life. Feeling grounded does not require contact with the earth; it can happen anywhere and anytime — even when we’re flat on our backs in a rowboat.

Reality is inherently grounding. The more in touch with it we are, the more grounded we feel. This is as true of the facts of daily life as it is of our true nature. Life is multidimensional, ranging from the physical to the subtle to formless awareness. When we are in touch with physical reality, we feel physically grounded. As subtle levels of feeling and energy unfold, we feel subtly grounded. When we know ourselves as open awareness, not separate from anything, we rest in and as our deepest ground that is sometimes called our homeground or groundless ground » 
                                                                        John J. Prendergast : Relaxed Groundedness

We have been practicing Ground several times. As dancers we know the importance and the blessing of Ground. AND … we can deepen the exploration of this resource.

By practicing, our attention deepens, and our experience of the physical body and our identification with the physical body changes. And of course our felt sense of the ground shifts accordingly.

Sounds complicated?…
… don’t worry: as soon as we move, it becomes clear !
Our body has it’s own intelligence.

And if we give permission to our internal brain to support us, our dances will gently carry us from physical ground to subtly grounded and maybe even to our deepest ground.

From No Ground to forground, to background and homeground.
That’s the journey I invite you to. Make it your journey.
