This series of Shakti Dance® Exercises follows the natural stages of change of an Archetypal Plant throughout its yearly cycle - i.e. one that:
✨ Germinates and shoots in the Spring,
✨ Flowers in the Summer,
✨ Fruits in the Autumn and
✨ Releases its seeds again into the Winter.
This practice is interwoven with the Wisdom of the I Ching Hexagrams, arranged according to their binary pattern. Thus, the yearly cycle of growth is subdivided into 64 stages.
We begin our journey in this Group with the 1st Binary Hexagram, reflecting the energy at Summer Solstice, with a Video-Post with an Introduction & Practice to activate:
✨ Hexagram Number 1: INCISIVE INTENT
(traditional number 43)
✨ In transit from:
21st - 25th July
and we will continue through the stages of Nature's unfolding with 21 videos for each Hexagram's step of change, once every 4.5 days, up until the Autumn Equinox - on 21st September 2022.
You will receive:
✨ food for thought about the different stages of plant growth and be prompted to see how, in each unfolding moment, these images of growth are also reflected in the unfolding of your own life, lending deeper insight to your own personal process and progress through life.
✨ A Shakti Dance® Exercise given by its founder Sara Avtar that activates and balances the corresponding energy of each of these phases of growth.
For Shakti Dance® Teachers, this gives an extremely useful repertoire of movements, with a deeper understanding of their qualities, to incorporate in their own classes.
To honour this sharing, Sara Avtar asks that you interact often with these video posts, reacting with an emoticon, or even better sharing how you experience the different phases of change and their corresponding exercises.
Thank you for your participation.
