“Nothing is as strong as gentleness, Nothing as gentle as real strength”
- Goethe

We begin with 30 minutes of gentle dance to wonderful music inspired by the 5 Rhythms. We then have a check-in, in pairs or in the circle.

Following on from this is a movement session with and without music, sometimes with eyes closed, sometimes open, inspired by Authentic Movement and Prapto's Amerta Movement. Usually this part of the session is witnessed, which means that you are being seen moving by someone else in the group who is practicing being a non judgemental presence who may, with your agreement, offer reflections on your movement. Not advice or guidence, rather offering something that they see you do.

This can be very healing and affirming, the form creates a depth of safety and permission to be how we need to be, moment to moment, movement to movement. The experience can be liberating and builds self confidence and body awareness. We complete the session with either a Somatic Movement practice or guided relaxation. 

"Participation in the Gentle Dance sessions enabled me to move gently, mindfully, through the weeks of a tough house move. Very gently I was stretched, challenged, given space, heard, seen, encouraged.

Dawn's highly skilled facilitation held us as we relaxed into deeper awareness of all that we are. I am filled with gratitude and wonder. Elizabeth
