More Info about the session:
This dance is dedicated to evoking the feelings of grief & grage as a powerful vibration, allowing yourself to feel the intensity of rage, learning to direct grief in a healthy way, thus using it as a personal power to manifest whatever we want.
When we experience grief, our body goes into the same physical response as if we have physical pain, it goes into a fight or flight response, which is connected to our sense of safety, as well as our action/primal animal response, our body releases high levels of adrenaline and cortisol so we can run away, take action, fight, or do the things physically to deal with the threat in front of us.
However when it is triggered by grief, we also have a shut down response, we contract, don’t want to move, we make ourselves small, freeze and get depressed. If we don’t use up all these excess hormones, we have all this extra adrenaline which creates illness, diseases, sustained fatigue, as well broken heart syndrome.
If you don’t bring yourself back to a chemical balance, it can create such illness, you can actually die from it. It is important for us to face grief, face it in a way where we are consciously moving grief and releasing this energy from our body using physical exertion. Using the body, allowing ourselves to cry and express freely, to get ourselves back into balance instead of just getting stuck in this depressed state. Fight or flight is associated with rage, anger and panic. When we have grief, we also feel rage & anger.
