Jude: Those of us interested in meditation are well familiar with the benefits of relaxation, peace, and ease. But at the other end of the spectrum there are complementary practices of ecstatic movement. In meditation we settle into our experience as it is, while with the practice of ecstatic movement we are stirring things up, moving them around, and skating them out. We will start in stillness and then shift into a gentle, body nourishing shake. Then we’ll ramp it up, really getting our shake on. We will then shift into a creative flow of movement, allowing our body to intuitively move and slow it down, eventually coming back to a place of stillness and experiencing it again, but as if for the first time.
