Class Description:

MORNING as in awakening– to our senses, our surroundings, our agency EXORCISE as in ritual– for purging the body of habitual, socialized choreographies grounded in the principles and elements of emergent strategy, “dancing ecologies” is a collective journey through breath, guided meditation, biomimicry movement experiments, and group reflections. according to adrienne maree brown, “emergent strategy is how we intentionally change in ways that grow our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for.” what are the competencies and capacities we need to expand in a time of repeating crises? what new speeds of moving do we need to cultivate attention, depth, and trust? what can we learn from the biologically indeterminate shape of fungal networks? how can we inhabit body in a way that honors our interdependence, that re-members what joanna macy calls the “ecological self which recognizes that the world is its body”? this movement workshop is open to all who are in the practice of shaping change towards life & liberation for all becomings. MORNING EXORCISE seeks to inspire the wholeness of all bodies, recognizing the body both as a technology of freedom and site for transformative potential.
