How do you ensure you have time during the week to reconnect with yourself? Maybe with a quiet cup of coffe/tea or a glass of wine? Do you meditate – or try, or maybe do yoga or another kind of movement class or exercise? Do you find it hard to make time for these things and just grab whatever moment you can? Surely committing to yet another weekly activity is NOT the way to get more time to reconnect!
The thing is that maybe sometimes it is. Especially if the activity we commit to is one of the very things that can really help us to become more present in ourselves and more aware of the space around us. Eurythmy is a little known treasure in this field. It is a performance art and as such the foundation of it is artistic, but within, around and underlying this art is the fact that in it’s very nature it is an enlivening form of movement that continually requires us to become more and more aware of our movement and the space around us. It is also not only a performance art: it is also a social movement art and there are numerous exercises that can continually help us improve both our coordination, concentration and mindfulness of self as well as our connection to the people around us.
However, for this awareness to grow you will need to commit to a regular practise – just as you would if you want to get physically fit or learn to play an instrument. This is why I am starting a weekly evening class as well as monthly Saturday morning workshops – because sometimes having a regular commitment just gets us going and can give us that much needed time during the week where we can reconnect. Come along and try something new – no previous experience is needed. All you need to bring is yourself and preferably wear comfortable clothes and thick socks (anti-slip if you have any).
