The internet has exploded our knowledge and sharing base and people are signing up for tele-courses hungry for something. You name it, it's out there.
Indeed, humanity is craving instruction, training, community and I believe, healing. Spirit is flooding the social media world with its beauty and feel good vibes. Even the Pope is getting major props and has a Twitter account he uses!
But here's the thing. Although I think the computer, telephone and Skype are the bomb and I use them way more than I should, actually BEING with other human beings in a meaningful way is the way we are going to heal ourselves, the world, the planet.
As Bruce Lipton, neuro-biologist and author of The Biology of Belief and The Honeymoon Effect says, it is a biological necessity to belong to a community. And while the internet can create that amicable link for us that connects us to loved ones and friends new and old....God knows how we all love Facebook and Twitter...it can also give us a deep sense of loneliness and separation keeping us locked up inside and not venturing out to connect.
What I am calling "Movement Coaching" is a gift to humanity in the form of a system I facilitate called Biodanza. You can read about the origins and benefits on my site, so I won't go into it at length here. It's nothing short of marvelous, I assure you.
It's what I've been doing all along before I actually completed a Life Coach training which gave me more of the verbal tools to use when coaching and facilitating with clients.
I had my A-ha moment halfway through the life coach...tele-course.... LOL! .....(I did hesitate as I don't love tele-courses) that I was already a life coach in disguise! And while I love my coaching tribe dearly and the awesome 8 month training experience, I felt/feel a disconnect in that I couldn't/can't BE with them more often.
Of course, being who I am I made personal contacts with other coaching tribemates in the area and met for coffee! This helped me connect on the up close and personal human plane. This is what makes me, a human being in this human world, tick.
I believe that disconnection from in person humanity is being lived by a wide majority of internet junkies today, teens included, and this is making so many sad and anxious grasping for more...internet experiences. I don't think they'll find happiness there.
My solution is.....
BIODANZA MOVEMENT LIFE COACHING
It creates a safe space for people to embrace their unique potential and connect to the "poetry of human encounter' with other alive human beings up close and personal.
It helps you FEEL all that you think and talk about in the verbal coaching sessions and engages you to EXPRESS it organically in the dance.
It helps men, women and teens liberate the MOTION in their eMOTION...otherwise the stagnant energy stays very stuck inside with the potential of causing dis-ease.
Thoughts create vibrations in the body. Movement takes your healing to that next FULL and COMPLETE level of healing that will clear up the blocked energy creating space for flow in the body.
It opens space for you to connect to your body compass in a loving way...your instinct... which will never lead you astray. The body is wise and never lies. Have you listened to yours lately? What is it telling you?
In person group movement life coaching might be a bit out of the box for many who have stopped dancing in public eons ago. Our culture has beaten it out of us, made us feel gawky and anxious about not having the perfect body and therefore, we can't show ours to anyone...especially not on the dance floor.
Or we've been told we are awkward with two left feet. Perhaps we have just lost the rhythm of life and need to rediscover it on the inside.
Our culture has made us feel weird about connecting in love with others, offering hugs and solace, offering our sincere presence. Many cannot hold the hand of another in solidarity nor look another in the eyes.
Many cannot offer their undivided presence to another human being. Count how many times a ringing cell phone or text message goes unanswered immediately.
But do not be turned away. Do not be scared to confront that which hinders you.
You can ease your way back to the sublime beauty of total integration- mind, body, spirit and action - with personal movement life coaching which is you getting to know...well, you. It is a good first step. Movement can help you reconnect with YOU!
But long term, that's a bit like a tele-course with...well, you....and me.
Optimally, step #2 is sharing the joy and love in a group of dancing, happy community of people that will reset your internal buttons to GO! Your body will be well on its way to organic biological and physiological healing! Full speed ahead!
But we take turtle steps forward and allow life to unfold as it needs to.
Group movement coaching is also a sure fire way to bring more JOY and VITALITY back into your life. After a day at work and of Facebook and Twitter, it's a refreshing way to shed the stagnation of stuck energy in the body.
I end with but one convincing testimony among many that I have read over the years. It is most touching to me and the honesty struck me in my heart space with love:
I experienced Biodanza for the first time last night and was incredibly introduced to a person I've never known - myself! A wonderful friend invited me to come experience her group…Thank you for considering my request to continue this life-changing art. I'm a 48 year old man who's never been in touch with himself-until now. "
Ah....it's never too late to discover what GROUP MOVEMENT COACHING can do for you.
And even though dance might not be a mainstream healing modality...yet.... you can come be part of the new paradigm for self healing with me and be proactive in your mind, heart, body healing!
Peace my private dancer warriors...
Come out of your living rooms and dance with me!
