“Sometimes it can be hard to allow yourself to receive love. Dancing the Heart Chakra, it felt as if little birds were unravelling stitches from my heart. ~ Kirsten“
Rhythm for your Soul
Above is an excerpt from the book ‘Chakradance; Move your Chakras, Change your life’ by Natalie Southgate. Natalie is Australian, and the founder of Chakradance™ which she set up in 1998 working from her flat in London! She’d been living the high life, but something was missing – she felt disconnected and there was a vague sense of emptiness; no real passion for what she was doing. Knowing her life was out of balance, she didn’t know what to do about it. A colleague got her excited about trainings in energy healing, meditation and shamanism. A part of her that had been sleeping was beginning to stir.
The Physical Body
I am sure that you will agree that most people are preoccupied with how intelligent our minds are; most have never even heard of the notion that our bodies contain actual wisdom and intelligence. And only fairly recently have the ideas been reaching more people that trauma, emotional distress, stressful experiences etc. are stored inside the cells of the body and that for healing .. the physical body must be included. Consider that, for many people, getting help means using the mind and the mouth – talking therapies – and yes, this can be very helpful in its own right. But creativity, the emotions, music and movement are all part of a healing process for the mind-body-soul; they are not separate. All areas need to be addressed and be in balance for us to experience full health.
You will probably know that the idea of yoga, when it was brought to our attention, was little-known and considered weird! Now, it is a booming industry and there is probably not one person left on this planet who does not know what yoga is and knows its benefits! I am aware that it is the same with Chakradance – because it has come, perhaps, before its time. I just sincerely invite you, to ‘just try it’! I run local* live classes regularly; at least once a month come September 21 😊
*If you are not local to me, find a facilitator in your area on www.chakradance.com
ONE WAY of getting to know more about it and to learn about voice & chakra-resonating music Guided Meditations, is to get yourself booked onto my 10 Day eCourse REBOOT YOUR BASE CHAKRA. I facilitate this online course regularly throughout the year; it will help you feel more grounded, energised and alive! The valuable course materials are tools for life! – the 10 days provide a structure for you to work with, but you can do it at your own pace, in your own time, at home. I will guide you with personal videos and posts within a Private (hidden) facebook group.
The next one is starting on 12th September 2021
Go to the link below to find out more and to get yourself booked on! Hope to connect with you there.
