The human heart has the strongest electromagnetic field of the body, 60 times stronger than the field generated by the brain, it has the loudest, clearest tone of any of our organs. The beat of our heart impacts on us and on those around us, on sensate, psychic, emotional and energetic levels.
In the foetal stage, the heart forms before the brain, and once the embryo develops from a flat collection of tissue to a three dimensional form, the area around the heart folds out with the nucleus of cells that will become the brain being contained in the folded area just above the heart. So the brain appears to come out from the heart -there are more neural pathways from the heart to the brain than in the other direction.
It seems that the heart is intended to speak and the brain to listen.
Yet we close, fix, protect and solidify in a way that locks the voice of the heart away, while the mind of the brain never stops talking at us.
Dance, like many other practices, can support our natural fluidity, loosen the channels of this essential heart intelligence and free us over time from the isolation that a closed heart inevitably gives rise to.
We can get better at hearing the heart’s inherent wisdom.
This workshop, supported by waves and heartbeat maps of the 5rhythms, explores ways that we may unfold the heart and embody the individual creative tone of our heart’s intelligence.
We will dance and fall back into our dance through wave after wave, taking time and space to remember ourselves and each other.
