Nature is our true nature
Workshops, classes, and community events offering opportunity to engage in movement explorations to connect to the elemental aspects of ourselves.
Moving Elemental: water walk / water movement ~ 1:30 to 2:30pm, Sunday May 26th at Riley Park Community Garden, East 30th Avenue & Ontario Street. Water walk: explore the undulating terrain surrounding Riley Park from the perspective of water. How might water move and flow here? Water movement: explore the movement of water within the water cycle and within ourselves through guided creative and improvisational movement – both individually and as a group… an opportunity to move in the space of the community garden in embodied relationship with the life-giving element of water.
Community Movement Ceremony to honour Water ~ 9:45 to 11 am on Saturday June 15th (location to be confirmed). We acknowledge the rivers of connection with others across the globe by gathering on this day in the spirit of Global Water Dances to create water prayer flags and to move together to honour water.
