Soul Dancing into Stillness – Day 6

Touching stillness. Slowing down. So intimate this dance.

Even the wild dance of days before is intimate. It is really meeting myself in my body as I move, as I let the music move in me, through me. And yet – in the quieter dance moments, I become more conscious of the intimacy – of the listening to – and meeting myself.

Joy is still there. Such joy. Small moments of quickening. A sense of love flowing. But also simply being with myself in movement. Nothing more, nothing less. Deeply intimate.

Katrin reminded me of something important. The burst of energy and the release of wildness is a meeting of something and someone in me that often I don’t meet. It is connecting to a fundamental aliveness, vibrancy that often lies hidden. What a delight it is to meet that part of myself.

Having touched that – it is then exquisite to move into the place of slow, still connection. Slow, still connection.

Today was slow and still.

With such gratitude for the miracle that is our life – and the teaching and learning that is available everywhere  in every single moment. And right now it is coming home through Dance.

I am a woman with roots on two continents, Africa and Europe. I am passionate about supporting people in coming together in more authentic and life-affirming ways than what is the norm in most of our dominant systems. I am the co-founder of Kufunda Learning Village, a centre dedicated to working with rural Zimbabweans as they discover their wealth and wisdom, for themselves, but also for people everywhere. My journey and my passion is around learning to follow my own inner voice of wisdom, and in that finding joy and flow. That journey has brought me back to my essential nature as a Dancer. Through conscious dance I am finding my way into deeper relationship with myself and the world. I look forward to many more women rising to their power, especially in Zimbabwe, to help shift this beautiful country out of its stuck and painful place.
