Join dancer and rabbinical student Yonatan Arnon for a Jewishly infused journey of movement exploration.
Movement serves as an entry point for exploring our connection with ourselves, with our community, and with the divine. In this workshop, we will reignite our inner light and explore embodying both physical and internal fruits inspired by live music, movement, singing, ritual, and text.
How do we bring forth our internal Feminine energies to achieve growth and fulfillment? Our bodies are activated when we unfold our limbs and recognize their connection to the earth. Inspired by Jewish text, we will explore the earthly elements-water, earth, air and fire that flow through our bodies and nourish it/us. We will use movement techniques to ground ourselves like roots in the dark soil below. We’ll bathe in light allowing it to lift us, like the flowers reaching to the heavens. Let us manifest and fulfill all the yearnings of our flesh, muscles and bones in order to listen to what “all (my) bones shall say...” (Psalms 35:20).
GUEST STAR MUSICAL/VOCALIST: Rachel Weston
All are welcome, no movement background necessary. Light refreshments will be served after each workshop.
