Movement is creation. In the Andean tradition, there are many stories about the creation of this world – and all of them include dance. It is said that the ancient gods used to dance to create the earth, sky and sea. Dance is the movement of energies that lead to manifestation. When I dance, I shake up my emotions and thoughts and manifest those energies in movement.
Everything we do, feel or think is movement. Writing, walking, breathing, cooking, making love, talking, worrying – all is movement. Creation is in constant movement – birthing and dying to each moment. Through movement, we transform and heal our body, mind and soul – which ultimately leads to growth. We explore ourselves in motion, find our intuition and how we want to express ourselves in this world.
Movement is communication. You don’t need to learn a language to understand this universal expression. When we move, we bring what’s inside of us to the surface and come into dialogue with the outside world. When we find our own style of movement, our own essence – we flourish. It is a celebration of life. We are in a constant cycle of experiencing, transforming, growing and celebrating.
Follow me on my journey to create my very own dance of life – sharing my exploration of movement as my very personal medicine.
