I cried today ..intensely,passionately, and strangely I cried after just having laughed a few minutes before..
Now before you think that I've totally lost the plot(which maybe I have!🤣), it was at a 5-rhythms class here in L.A.. For the uninitiated,it is a 'class' where participants are guided through 5-rhythms/patterns of music, flowing,Stacatto,chaos,lyrical and stillness to dance/move and express whatever comes up in a space of non-judgement and expression.
This is a space where movement is allowed to come through an individual, to express anxiety,fear,ecstasy,joy,sadness,aggressiveness,vulnerability,edge,pain..imperfection.. I cried right after I had been flying high on pure joy through the movement..the music suddenly changed tempo and I felt a wave of sadness hit me, pain for the people who I had lost in my life, pain of the people close to me in my life that I couldn't help anymore, my own pain and wounds from the past, pain of the 'imperfect' self that I was constantly trying to make perfect ..pure pain..and as I cried in that room, not embarrassed, not hiding..as the rest of the participants just continued to move, I felt a deep wave of relief hit me, as if a heavy load had been lifted off me, some of that 'stuff' leaving me through my tears and sweat ..I felt this deep wave of peace and as I continued to move without looking joy was right back in my heart..the medicine of movement had yet again done its magic, I lost myself in this stuff just to find myself yet again..❤💜❤
Thank you for taking me to this magical space my sweet sister @eliskrav ❤❤❤
