My relationship with moving has changed – my moving is becoming more honest…I have not been able to separate me from my moving…I’ve never experienced that before. I feel like I’ve been given a very special key.
Working outside has been so profound – I have returned to the land and I feel it. I remember feeling it as a child. Body as landscape – Body in the landscape.
I came back home after ‘Women, Rocks and Water’ feeling more alive than ever. Within me there was a new sense of my moving body through space. The awakening of parts of my spine was the awakening of “dormant” dimensions of my being.
The work with Helen is movement practice but also practice for life. I find within it the uniting of my passions, physical and philosophical, in the playground of presence, experience and connection.
I have found the work in the environment inspiring and personally enhancing. I have loved the work as an individual within the group in the vastness and minutiae of the sites.
The Walk of Life has brought me into direct relationship with the coast, with its detail, its varied landscapes and seascapes, its beauty, gentleness and its power. I feel the age of the rocks and the newness of the life in the rock pools. The cliffs are speaking of all they have seen before them. The coast is rich, complex and inviting. I am meeting it as an old and new friend, ready to hear its wisdom and to share my stories. I am taught about permanence and change and levels of time existing together. The Jurassic Coast is alive and dancing with me.
I really like your prosaic, no frills style of teaching. It's authentic, clear and goes deep.
