Three Planes & Levels

Our bodies are designed to move up and down in relationship to gravity. Muscles and hearts and lungs gain strength and length by sinking and floating. It’s not just our bodies, though. Our minds and hearts also go up and down – perhaps especially in these times of predictable unpredictability.

Today’s Dharma Dance Swirl practice anchors on the movements, sensations and benefits of sinking and floating by integrating guided and unguided movement. The invitation is to sink into the structure and patterns so you can float into what you need in every moment. Find the video here.

Leonardo da Vinci captured it well:

The air moves like a river and carries the clouds with it; just as running water carries all the things that float upon it.

Use this practice to feel both grounded and free, both substantive and light, both supported and independent. I’d love to hear how you sink and float through it! Please leave a comment below!
