Fri, April 10, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Daily ~ All Out All You Dance Party (or Presence Party!)

Today’s Dancing Water Daily experience is a moving meditation for practicing presence. I call it an All Out All You Dance Party (but given our focus this week, we should call it a “Presence Party”!) and it’s designed to be both fun and interesting! In it, I offer a varied playlist and invite All Out All You movement in response. The practice is to let awareness alight on sound, sensation and space as anchors to presence. Please find the video here.

Simply move in any way that feels good to you in response to sound, sensation and space and notice where your attention lands. This is not about moving or meditating “correctly” but rather approaching movement with compassionate curiosity and an intention to keep returning our awareness to the anchors of sound, sensation and space. Sometimes your mind will wander. Maybe lots of times, maybe most of the time and that’s perfectly fine. Just like we move physically in ways that feel good and appropriate to each of us, do the same with your mind: let it wander if that feels good, let it focus if that feels helpful.

Here are Tara Brach’s words on presence that I shared at the beginning:

Presence is not some exotic state that we need to search for or manufacture. In the simplest terms, it is the felt sense of wakefulness, openness, and tenderness that arise when we are fully here and now with our experience. – from True Refuge
