Discovering what moves you
This classes structure is improvisation-based. This gives the dancer the ability to choose the level of intensity and power that best suits their body’s needs. Each task that we work with fuels and supports the next task to create multisensory and multidimensional awareness. In this way, a person can be fully engaged with their environment in an embodied and conscious manner that is confident and truly free to express.
TransformOtion Method is a system of developing all levels of one’s being. We address the physical, mental, emotional, and energetic bodies, activating and integrating all aspects of a person to create a deep feeling of wholeness, richness and radiant self-empowerment. This practice naturally and holistically aligns a person with their own inner guidance system which we call the Higher Self.
The Higher Self is the aspect of your being that operates from love and trust. This level of consciousness is naturally patient, direct, and compassionate. The main intention of the Higher Self is spiritual growth which often expresses as forgiveness, lovingkindness, joy, and ease. This part of you aligns with the divine nature of Life and enjoys the expansive feelings of oneness and symbiotic relationship.
The Ego Self (or personality) is the aspect of your being that is survival based and it's main focus is self-preservation, often making choices from fear and doubt. This level of consciousness operates and expresses from a sense of lack and creates a separation between an individual and the world around them. When we identify with the Ego Self, we may experience unpleasant feelings and emotions like contraction, imbalance, disconnection, frustration, guilt, and so on.
Physical Body: In the spirit of research, the framework of the class moves through many layers of task-oriented exercises, visualization, and imagination to explore the physicality of the body. We explore the dynamic range of the physical body’s ability in flexibility, strength, and balance to create boundless movement and a sense of freedom.
Emotional Body: Each emotional manifestation in our experience is stored in the body and offers us a teaching to empower us on our life path. We tune into the emotional body to discover what the body and emotions offer us for our evolution. This awareness offers us the ability to learn the messages and integrate the teachings so that we can experience emotional freedom.
Mental Body: We challenge the mind using our ability to focus and concentrate on the present moment in a state of mindful awareness. We multi-layer tasks and information so that we can enhance the mind’s ability to track our experience and open to greater states of clarity and precision.
Energetics: We exist in a matrix of energy that is in a constant state of change and evolution. Our own human energy field is a complex system of pathways that carry vital life force throughout our system, create emotions, and body experiences. We incorporate information from many ancient and contemporary schools of thought to clear, restore, and revitalize the subtle energy body.
When we consciously connect with our Higher Self we are connected to the God/Goddess/Source within us. We are an expression of the Universe and Consciousness in form. As we begin to become sensitive to subtle changes in ourselves and our environment, we begin to unlock the hidden messages of Life. When we are aligned with our Higher Self, we naturally uplift those around us and our environment becomes one of peace and unity. With this sensitivity, we begin to consciously co-create with the greater intelligence of the Universe and begin to build a New Earth.
