Issue: November Newsletter
Much Gratitude and Upcoming Movement Medicine Workshops

By Hanna
As slowly and gradually this present year is arching itself toward its completion, I am finding myself filling up with much Gratitude. I am deeply grateful for my own personal journey of continuous unpeeling and unfolding toward more inner peace, true presence, and that most delicious and expansive freedom from the old, from ‘not-self-clutter’ and other constrictions and binding limitations.

I am feeling grateful and touched as more and more of my true soul essence is filling out this being I am.

Inner peace bringing outer peace and inner change bringing outer change. A part of my journey of the uncovering of the Self happens through and with Movement Medicine. And it is one of the things I love about it: the loving facilitation and encouragement of this continuous 'cleansing' journey, moving from the inner to the outer (and back again). The shifts I wish to see outside myself are often the same ones I can take responsibility for inside myself, as the ripples of shift and healing are going out.

And so there is also this massive gratitude in my heart for this community and countless many absolutely incredible and wonderful movements everywhere around the world – earthing and manifesting peace, positive change, compassion and love, bringing consciousness and awareness, and new grounds for a life lived in respecting and honouring of Life itself.

If you are feeling inspired to dive into some of that Movement Medicine for inner and outer healing and transformation, have a look at the following wonderful offerings in various countries. There are many different invitations to dare to dance, to heal and to change and expand.

Also have a look at the Movement Medicine Association, now in a new website-dress, featuring many exciting local Movement Medicine offerings all around the world.

Another interview with one of the Faculty Teachers of the School will hopefully be in the next newsletter edition.
