mindful embodiment and meditative movement is euphoric, transformative, therapeutic. our bodies know how to move to heal all layers of our being. our e-motions (energies-in-motion) must flow through us in full expression to be released; often times we hold onto or resist uncomfortable emotions because it seems easier at the time, or we are afraid to feel them. in dance medicine, witness these stuck energies and repressed emotions be set in motion and released fully, ecstatically.. and often with tears.
