About the Event

“You can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf” - Jon Kabat - Zinn

We can lose vital life energy when we flight things beyond our immediate control, wish things were different or shut down parts of ourselves.

While we can’t always control what happens in our lives, we can learn to dance with it. When we find ourselves dancing and moving with all that life brings, it is like we are surfing, there is nothing to change, run from or shut down. Life is good and we are resourced to live it.

Hester synthesizes solo and group processes from the fields of Open Floor dance practice, cutting edge somatic psychology and ancient wisdom traditions. In this workshop we will explore finding that sweet spot where we are surfing the crest of the wave. We will hone our capacity to dance with all that life brings on, and off the dance floor.

Dancing With Life is facilitated by Hester Phillips, MA (clinical) | Conscious Dance Aotearoa Founder | Arts Therapist and assisted by other qualified Conscious Dance facilitators.

Our venue will be Hampden Street School Hall. The venue will host a 'Living Lounge' as a space to foster connections. Please bring a cushion or bean bag etc to sit on the the Living Lounge.
