More about this online programme

dancing with grief as a messenger of love and agent of change

This online group is created specifically for these times, it seems we are carrying a lot of shock and grief in our systems right now. As a resource in this we will use the tools and practices of Movement Medicine to open the door to grief as an ally. To create safety and permission in connection with others, thereby giving some breath to the stories in our broken hearts. Experience with many groups shows that when we allow this what we find is a stepping closer to our true nature and a clarifying of what really matters to us.

Ashes & Blossom is an invitation to dance into the places of heartbreak and welcome the life force waiting there.  Dance is amazing for working with intense emotions. The awake, moving body creates a strong, safe and versatile vessel for the heart, in which we can evolve, rather than be overwhelmed by what we feel.

Strengthening and leaning into the support of human connection, we will welcome, express and share what is needed, enabling us to catch sight of the wild blooms in our grief.  We will spend time in intentional focus and integration to clarify our understanding and nurture any emerging buds.This is precious time in dancing community to learn about ourselves, each other and strengthen our connection to all that gives and supports life, including our grief.

Background: 
The seed and soil of this work comes from Rosie's own journey with loss and heartbreak. This course has been developed in the rich humus of personal experience, alongside working with both groups and individuals (online and in person) to support them in navigating individual and collective grief landscapes. Rosie has also gained expertise over the last few years in facilitationg groups to safely and effectively bring the heart into motion.

Content: 
We will use the practices of Movement Medicine as the basis of our journey, we will also specifically draw upon:

  • Movement Medicine Chambers of the Heart 
  • Movement Medicine archetypal support
  • Movement Medicine Intentional focus, body dreaming and witnessing, also called
  • Ceremony.
  • Processwork
  • Sound and voice, including sharing grief stories
  • Creative expression and reflection (drawing, crafting, writing and any other expressions of creativity, full permission to chose what is right for you here)


How it will work online: 
Taking into account zoom capacity and also knowing what is needed in terms of time and landing to find our way here. I have looked to create a programme with a balance of group connection and space, trying to minimize screen overload.

For the day modules we will meet, move and explore for 2.5 hours in the morning.  We will then break for 2 hours for lunch and an activity away from the screen, meeting in the afternoon for a further 2.5 hours.  In the zoom session times there will also be breakout groups and activities that do not involve screen interaction.

I have included an evening session before the first module to meet each other and land, there will also be an evening session between each module to keep the thread strong.

An individual mentoring session is also included as part of the group. As well as this there will be the option for peers to meet to get support and listen to each between modules, this will be up to the individuals and groups to decide.

Prerequisites:
This group is open to all who feel they might benefit from it. It is however important that you be willing and able to take full responsibility for your own physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing during and betweeen modules and after the course. This includes a commitment to ensuring you have support systems in place if needed.
