Dear Dancing Friend,

Monday Moving Meditation with Lucine is on tonight, 7 – 9.30pm
Personally, I find that stillness is the trickiest rhythm to “drop into”. The inability to “DO” stillness defied my my monkey mind for years as I would half-heartedly make the shapes of stillness and watch my mind wander to whether I was “doing it right”(??!!!) Finally at some point I gave over my dance to the shapes of what was actually happening in that moment- all of the things that “got in the way” of my stillness dance actually BECAME my stillness dance. There are no particular rules or shapes but rather the ability to just be present with myself in each moment. We will explore this in the “Space in Between” stillness tonight. 

Next week we start the final Monday Moving Meditation series of the year: 5Rhythms, 5 Teachers.

Reminder: There are NO TUESDAY CLASSES this week. 

There is a Surf Coast Sweat with Evelyn on Wednesday 8th November, and Castlemaine dancers have a Sweat with Thais on Friday 10th November.

Sweat Your Prayers at the Royal Talbot on 19th November has been cancelled – David and Meredith are unable to offer as they are involved in the 5Rhythms Teacher Training in Castlemaine. Next Sweat is with Madhuma at the Convent 3rd December. The final Sweat of the year is with David and Meredith on 17th December at the Talbot.
