Dance Awake is a conscious movement meditation that creates new possibilities, propelled by a catalyst of raw joy and abandon, and supported within a container of spontaneous community. Reconnect to the resonance and joy of life flowing, and live with ease and grace. Take the leap and embrace happiness.
Dance Awake practices dance as an awareness template to reveal and move beyond the unconscious scripts of our beliefs that inhibit the natural desire for connection and love. The body holds these scripts within its structure in the form of stuck energy and armoring, usually as a result of past conditioning, trauma, or abandonment. JJ leads Dance Awake and his Sensory Awareness Chakra Meditation for Esalen’s daily movement program. Deepening this practice with curiosity and mindful intention provides a safe place to explore and challenge these preconceived notions and judgments in a body-centered forum of fun and play. Using experiential exercises, this workshop incorporates many practices, including Gestalt, meditation, sensory awareness, and attachment theory as guides along the path of connection to self, to one another, and to the divine. Be prepared to laugh and let go in a dance of heart opening.
