In Wild Divine Dance we are invited to move in our own way, at our own pace, to a variety of music in the company of others.  With light facilitation to support exploration, we’re invited to show up as we are and move what is, holding in kind presence all aspects of our humanity. Getting curious about the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and relational aspects of unfolding, we dance to reveal the wisdom of the body, open our hearts and awaken to life.

 

SUKHA Awakening Joy Dance and Mindfulness daylong with Salma Darling

Saturday 29th June 10am - 5.30pm

Joy is an authentic state of being that is long lasting.

Immersing in conscious dance, woven with the stillness of meditation, we'll explore the different types of joy, and how we, individually and collectively, can get more if it!

SUKHA (from Pali, the ancient Indian language that Buddhist texts were written in) the word is translated as happiness, pleasure, ease, joy or bliss - are all felt in the present moment.

Joy comes in many different flavours and look different as we express them very individually - quiet contentment, bubbly enthusiasm, gladness, energetic radiance, a simple quiet feeling of peaceful connection, calm or ease.

There will be facilitation to help you to connect with your body and drop into dance, some teaching on Joy, with an emphasis on space to allow individual and collective dances to emerge and evolve.
Dancers of all ages, abilities and energy levels are welcome, including those who are new to conscious dance.

“Personal benefits of my work with Salma Darling:  more laughter, more beauty, more love, more translucency, deeper connection to the TRUTH of life, more playfulness, more roars, and lot’s more to come I hope!”    Richard, designer and producer, California USA

“This dance has become a haven in the week, a place of permission to be just as I am”   Sasha, Brighton UK

Salma’s dance is a space to unwind, discharge, relax, exhilarate, be sad, get angry, release and be the pure energy I am – allowing it to move, flow, agitate, girate, rotate, splurge, explode, settle and be calm – wonderful!!!” Aaron, Brighton UK

“Salma’s teaching is gentle and fun. Understated.  Opening ourselves is respected, welcoming subtlety, vulnerability”  Peter, Brighton UK

“Really loved the dance and I was full of nervous trepidation. Thanks for holding the space and see you soon”  JK, Brighton UK
