soul motion: the way of the moving mystic with michael is an intermediate-level program open to all who have movement experience. this is an online immersion.
mysticism is neither a faith nor a belief, nor is it a principle or a dogma. a mystic is born; being a mystic means having a certain temperament, a certain outlook on life. it is for this reason that many are confused by the word mystic because mysticism cannot be explained in plain words.
as somatic practitioners, we continue to unfold and learn within the tradition of conscious dance as a metaphor for understanding the alchemy of our everyday lives.
this is an invitation to stand together, to move together and to pray together through the somatic practices of soul motion, into the wide and open arms of the mystery. let’s use our curiosity and questioning to guide us into the void. a quest of gathering information, so that we may ‘avoid’ the pitfalls of limiting beliefs and assumptions. let’s move beyond the confines of the seen, into the realms of the invisible and unseen. firmly rooted in the soma and the grond beneath our feet, insight, intuition and premonition will be our portal into the unknown.
“mysticism is the practice of seeking the unknown while recognizing that the unknown is not altogether knowable and perhaps sharing the experience with others (or not). to live close to the unknown and then find beauty and ease in it is, indeed, a healthy spirituality. a mystic is a teacher, who shines in such a way, as to cause the open-minded to question his, her or their own ‘perceptions’ or assumptions about knowing, about what is knowable, and about why we insist on knowing to the point of self-destruction (nuclear combustion being the great example)”.
our path is to continue to open and receive the wisdom of the body’s wanderings and wonderings. this program takes the next step in receiving and recovering the somatic resources available to us through movement, ritual, poetry, nature, journaling, prayer, art, and the dynamics of tending space with altars.
this is an online two-part series, to be completed together. there will also be online content with group interactions between sessions.
