Dance Your Prayers
The Aquarian,Fall 2007
"Dance like nobody's watching
Love like you've never been hurt
Live like it's heaven on earth."
Imagine creating a sacred space where your body can move freely, breathe easier and rejuvenate gently. This is D'Arcy and Dieter Bruning-Haid's vision behind their new evening series Dance your prayers. Their collective desire is to create a safe haven where men and women can be guided inward to set their personal intentions for what they want and give themselves the permission needed to move and dance our bodies as a collective prayer.
An opening circle will be created each Saturday evening once a month from 7:30pm - 10pm (doors opening at 7:15pm) at the CentreCulturel franco-manitobain at 340 Provencher Blvd. It's an open invitation to bring forth a community of like minded souls to gather together and celebrate the breath of life through movement. The evening is drug and alcohol free. It's a place to be silly, play and connect to yourself and others and allow whatever is needed to be felt or experienced. The cost per evening is $15 or $30 if you want to pre-register in advance at 475-5339 for all three evenings held on Oct 13th, Nov 10th and Dec 15th , 2007.
Come experience the power of being in your body and how wonderful it can be. Life can be so unpredictable bringing both love, loss and change into our lives. Practice learning to ride the wave of the unknown by creating a safe container to move through resistance, fear and grief to celebrate all of life's joys and gifts to the fullest.
Each evening begins with guided breath, movement and sound casting our intentions into the sacred circle. Warming up our bodies and opening ourselves to the gifts that come from being in community together. The bulk of the evening is all about free movement ... in an open space letting each person listen from within and move freely to a fusion of music created special for each evening. The cool down allows the pace to slow down so we can enter the stillness within. Movement, breath and sound shake our insides up and create a delicious pathway into the new realm of possibility, clarity and understanding. Once the shaking and releasing is over we then can begin to take our intentions, our dreams and visions and plant them into manifestation.
Dance your prayers is a journey of the heart that allows insight to gently come from within. Creating a safe space to fully live in our bodies and embody our dreams. It's a chance to release our heads from the needing to know and figure it all out and allows our spirits to move through us and show us the way.
