Elements of Soul Motion
We dance and practice occupying the space around us – our true dance partner ~ alone and together
Soul Motion is a movement meditation. Instructions and questions serve to activate physical attention, awareness and perception of the room.
We listen to our physical impulses.
We are being inspired and touched by encounters with others. Selected music from contemplative to powerful and the sound of silence supports us. We experience presence, listening and liveliness.
In a safe space where there is no judgement, no right or wrong, you can relax, feel yourself and express freely.
Inquiries and instructions are simple and easy to transfer to daily life.
The connection between body, mind and soul is enhanced. You connect with you in embodied presence.
Enjoy to move in stilleness and in movement, play and be still alone and together.
We play with four relational landscapes, using three core movement principles.
The four relational landscapes:
- Dance intimate…. we move alone
- Dance communion… we move with one other
- Dance community… we move with everyone
- Dance infinity… we move our practice to the everyday life
Dance intimate, dancing alone we renew our relationship with the body as a shifting shape in space.
Dance communion, inspired by interior impulses, sensations, and images the dancer begins to relate and communicate outwardly.
Dance community , as dancers begin to move in ever widening circles, they receive and transmit information and inspiration to the larger dance happening all around them.
Dance infinite, what happens in the dance room is a template for the everyday dance in the living world. we move out from the dance room sensing our environment more clearly, communicating with others with enhanced perception, and relaxing more readily with the challenges and obstacles that may dance before us.
The three core principles:
Pause Presence, a meditative relaxation practice that allows the dancer to slow down, align, and recharge.
Orbit Orientation, the dancer is encouraged to consciously move in all directions with equal attention and without preference.
Echo Inspiration, dancers are guided to use each other’s movements to inform and inspire them.

“I get to explore and open to what might have become hidden and express in ways far beyond what words could do”
“Soul Motion creates a fantastic, present, heartful, serious and playful room, while it is spiritual yet grounded and down to earth”
