Biodynamic Coherency: Diving Into Myth & Wild Primary Body – An Advanced Collaboration with Sarah Byrden
June 22 @ 9:30 am - July 1 @ 1:30 pm
This Collaboration is an Adventure into the Wildness of Soma & Psyche
An exploration, not for the faint of heart…but the curious
A soulful calling and responding to life’s sustenance…
We’ll begin exploring the power inherent within Myth, Story, and Archetype as a portal into the mutable
Wild Primary Body
shapeshifting, vacillating, softening, tracking…we will be informed, claimed, and devoured by the birthright of our own wild fluid terrain
and re-shaped and supported by the flowing forms of MogaDao Archetypal Qigong
Tracking the edges we interface soma and psyche…
pulling a thread of biodynamic coherency through the archetypal and liminal space of being. Join us for this journey into the innate coherence of Soul
PREREQUISITE: This is an advanced collaboration course and is only for those already with a firm foundation in somatic explorations. Participants need to know they have the confidence, physical centering, and psychic anchoring to hold them in time and space. A clear sense of containment and a fluent practice in grounding is required. This course is not a fit for those who may be currently feeling destabilized, traumatized, struggling to heal, or in need of reestablishing basic nervous system or life coherency. We will be going deep in this course, not only conceptually but truly into the live wilderness of psyche and soma.
Edges are often where the known is not yet visible but can be just out of sight. Catching a fleeting glimpse, detecting a movement at the perimeter of awareness, there may be a sense that something is not yet acknowledged, or is lost, and yet is on the cutting edge of consciousness.
Perhaps this is what hunting or being hunted feels like in the wild kingdom.
Quick moving, it can be difficult to catch an impulse that sets our being into reaction: a desire to jump and escape as well as a longing to connect and be caught. Following an initiation of an expression requires a patient slowing of pace and a quiet receptivity in the heart in order to perceive the impulse just before it comes into being.
It takes a bifurcating focus of awareness that moves inward and concurrently outward toward a larger field of influence. Only in this way can we stay present in order to feel the origins of our fear and the impulses of our longing.
