Dancing with the Divine
Come and explore a week of embodied movement through the practice of JourneyDance. We will dance to seek our inner wisdom, connect in community, connect with the earth, and with the Source that created us into being. No dance experience is required, just an openness to move in your own unique way.
JourneyDance is not about learning steps, it’s about revealing, recovering, and re-discovering your natural intuitive movement. Activate your imagination and utilize diverse forms of freestyle improvisational dance, yoga, ritual, theater, and transformation to a soundtrack of inspiring world music, creating a barefoot ecstatic celebration of the human spirit.
- Through breath, sweat, and expression, you move and dance with what needs to be released and let it go.
- Change the habits of your past and overlay new physical/emotional/neuro patterns
- Turn angst into art and feel a new passion for life
- Release judgment and shame, embrace our sensual souls
- Move into a new story of honest self-love, pronounced joy, and deep embodied presence.
Each session will involve dance, journaling, connecting and creating. Come prepared to move and be moved. We practice the movement with bare feet, so no special shoes are required. Clothing that is comfortable to move in is suggested.
Sheilagh McGlynn has been leading JourneyDance sessions and workshops for 12 years. Here is a bit of her JourneyDance story
– I LOVE being able to offer this healing work to people. I love encountering a new group to JourneyDance and witnessing them transform through music, visualization, and play. Leaving a class, one of my participants said to me "I feel so good". That is what this work is about. We all deserve to feel that good. I believe it is possible for all of us. Since finding JourneyDance I am a stronger person both physically and emotionally. My relationships are healthier and have more tools to handle the things that life deals me. It is a place for me to feel connected to God and to community. It is an expression of my faith. When I was a little girl, I figured that I wasn’t good at prayer because when I closed my eyes and bowed my head my mind started to race. When I move through the JourneyDance flow, my mind is still and I feel connected to God, myself and others in a way that I have never experienced before. That is prayer.
When Sheilagh isn’t leading JourneyDance, she is working as a Psychotherapist and as the Animator for Youth Ministries for the Anglican Church of Canada. She loves to cook, to walk, and practice yoga. She finds God in all things and specifically in unique places. She can’t wait to dance with you (and the Divine)!!!
