The Way of the Dancing Warrior – Movement Medicine Men’s retreat at Orval, Belgium
October 2 - October 6| 575€
The Dancing Warrior is an archetypal force that resides within us all. It is the energy that provides us with the challenges of life and navigate our experiences with wisdom and flexibility. The Dancing Warrior awakens unconsciousness and travels all the way through to making a commitment to fully embodied knowledge. This 5 day embodied journey is an invitation for brothers to get real, to free ourselves from pushing ourselves, holding ourselves back. Creating space to be fully present in the complex dance of life. An opportunity to be vulnerable and dive deeper into our capacity to connect in the compamy of men.
The Way of the Dancing Warrior (Men’s Edition) is a unique opportunity to:
Be part of a strong circle of brothers who have the courage to dance.
Bring the wisdom, strength and creativity of the dancer inside you to an enquiry into who you are as a man living in the 21st Century.
Find gratitude for life and for the gifts it offers, remembering the dance of giving and receiving as a practice for life.
Ritualise the journey from unconsciousness through the victim/persecutor/rescuer dance, to the archetypal dance of the Wise Elder, Artist and the Dancing Warrior
Spend time in nature – resourcing and reconnecting to this essential life force
Invoke the courage of your heart, offering love and patience for old destructive patterns and reclaiming your dignity and authority as a man.
We will be guided by a variety of Movement Medicine maps and Johanna Macys Work that Reconnects. Exploring the archetypes of the child, teenager, warrior, lover, Father and Elder. We will also have time for personal reflection and to gather in smaller support groups.
Led by David Mooney and Ben Yeger
