And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anais Nin
It starts (as always) with Awareness. The noticing of when we make our bodies tight, of when we are afraid to take the step that part of us yearns to. This light on our inhibitions is crucial, it allows us to look and listen deeply, to give space for them to grow and pass. Leading from this curiosity, our fears loosen their grip. We relax around our towering walls, allowing a square window here, a circular door there. Maybe most importantly, we start developing a trust, a deep trust that it’s safe to come out and follow our beating hearts with abandon.
Based on the teachings of Param Karam Dharam Kriya, we will do the first movement together, the act of Opening Up. Opening up to all of life, all of ourselves and others. Being vulnerable and real, creating intention and making space that allows for expansion. This expansion may be uncomfortable, it may bring us joy or may bring us pain, it’s really out of our hands. Irrespective of which way it goes though, this is the way of growth, of blossoming.
In this workshop, we will expand our breath, stretch our bodies with a couple of kriyas, sing with all our heart, open up to the group and make purposeful intentions for the next 40 days. 3 weeks from the workshop date, we will have another opportunity to check in online with the group and share how life has unfurled.
‘Param Karam Dharam Kriya’ means ‘Ultimate Conscious Action to move from Karma to Dharma’. This workshop is the first of a four workshop series, the rest will appear after a gap of a couple of months. Each workshop is stand alone and emphasizes a particular quality. These four movements pour light on what our present situation is asking from us, and how we could choose to act.
