Bring the Life of the Dance into the Dance of Your Life
Movement Medicine is a grounding and uplifting modern meditation practice rooted in the traditions of ecstatic dance. It's suitable for anybody in a body. Everyone, no matter their age, shape or background, has a dancer inside them. This dancer has the capacity to access wisdom, vitality and creativity that we cannot access with intellect alone. The exercises in this book combine movement and meditation to guide you on a profound and transformational journey.
'Ya'Acov and Susannah are seasoned explorers of the psyche who have built up a fantastic and well-deserved reputation over the years.' - Barefoot Doctor
Movement Medicine invites you to take a journey to the soul through 9 Gateways. It is informed by a wealth of healing and transformational modalities, and is designed to support your soul to grow and flourish to face the challenges of life in the 21st century. The 9 Gateways are broken down into three journeys, each with a specific intent:
The Journey of Empowerment - the Gateways of Body, Heart and Mind
The Journey of Responsibility - the Gateways of Past, Present and Future
Living the Dream - the Gateways of Fulfilment, Interconnection and Realisation.
These 9 Gateways are all woven together to help you embody your essential self, expand your consciousness and live the most creative and fulfilling existence you can.
