‘Knowing what it is to be dis-empowered and lost in a theater of selves who are afraid, reactive and fixed humbles us and deepens genuine compassion. To recognize and accept these un-owned parts of ourselves that make up our shadow makes it less likely that we will fall under their spell and project their self-fulfilling prophecies onto the world around us .... for the Inner Shaman, life is an ongoing invitation to discover and take responsibility for who we are, both shadow and light.’--From Shaman, by Ya’acov Darling Khan

We are living through an extraordinary time, a time of great unknowing and a time of profound possibility and potentiality.

For many of us this time is a great mirror to both our innate creativity and resilience, and our inner ‘theater of selves’ that are cut off from our roots and alienated from the wider web of life. Evolutionary Presence will offer a Movement Medicine dance exploration and inquiry into Presence, the Unbroken that infuses each movement. This evolutionary act nurtures our ability to investigate our inner ‘theater of selves’ and to choose to open beyond the pull of these old stories.

  • You will need you to commit to attend all 6 sessions (to the best of your ability) so that we can depend on a safe and stable container -- and others in the group can depend on your presence. We are all important in this practice-- each of us is an important element of this constellation.

  • Evolutionary Presence is accredited and applicable to School of Movement Medicine hours (12) if you decide to pursue this practice more deeply in the future.

  • Registration is open from May 23 on first come first served. Please register early if you are called to join us!

  • Questions please contact johardy@freeuk.com

  • We invite you to please consider the following to create an optimum experience:

  • Familiarise yourself with Zoom, download the app, and take care of the technical aspects before the course, so we can begin on the first day without spending time on tech troubleshooting.

  • Create a safe space for dancing-- whether on a floor or carpet-- make sure the space is clear and free of hazards.

  • Create a sacred space with objects that represent the elements, perhaps images or symbols of your loved ones past present and future. Candles, sage, lights, whatever feels sacred for you.

  • Create some private space so that people who are sharing cannot be heard by unfamiliar people so we can be authentic and express themselves safely.

  • Source a good set of bluetooth headphones or a speaker -- the better the sound quality the more you will be able to enjoy Jo’s wonderful music mixes and guidance.

We will need you to agree to the following to participate in the Evolutionary Presence.

Participation in this online practice is fully at the risk and choice of participants. It is each person's responsibility to look after their physical, emotional and mental well being. Listen to your own body. If something hurts, pay attention and take care of yourself. All participants are asked to move at their own pace and to take care of themselves on all levels. Jo Hardy and all people connected to the School of Movement Medicine can take no responsibility for injury you sustain as a result of participating in these online courses.

  • I understand that Movement Medicine is an activity that involves physical movement.

  • I have an area to dance in which I have checked is safe.

  • I have checked the floor and there is nothing I could trip over.

  • I am fit and well and able to dance.

  • If my physical condition is restricted in any way, I can and will monitor my own level of movement and activity so that I remain within what is appropriate for my body.

  • I understand that Movement Medicine may bring emotions to the surface.

  • I am willing and able to take full responsibility for my own physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being during the online class and after it.

  • I will listen to my body and my being and respect my own limits during the online activity and afterward.

  • I take full responsibility for my own physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health during the course and afterward.
