Enliven Day 2 of a workshop weekend
The practice of the meditation with its’ creator Mary Chase within a community of movers is a wonderful way to dive more deeply into the work after a workshop. This second day offers a sense of integration with how the sacred geometry inhales and exhales with many movers in a space and how to take the practice out into the world. This day may incorporate practicing in a variety of locations like parks, in the forest, on the beach, in chapels/synagogues/sanctuaries/temples, community centers, or just down the street...
Embrace Practice in a Group
Workshop attendees may want to continue to meet on a regular basis. The opportunity to create a Movement Meditation Group is an excellent way to grow in relationship to others and to continue one’s commitment to develop compassion in their lives. Each community can continue to work together to meets their needs. A group coordinator should contact Mary Chase/Chasedance in order to discuss and brainstorm how the work can continue to grow and serve the community.
The meditation stands alone and can be utilized as personal practice for the Mind, Body and Spirit to enliven the richness and vibrance compassion can play in your life. Contact Chasedance in order to access the resources: Movement Cues, Mantras, and Videos for a home practice.
