Using movement, music,
words, reflection, and sharing, Essential
Motion returns us to the natural wisdom of our bodies.
In childhood, we express the natural ease and spontaneous playfulness of our authentic, unique selves. Our minds may forget, but our bodies remember. Karen Roeper, in her original and inspiring work, Essential Motion, reconnects us with the body as our source of aliveness, creativity, and wisdom. Watching us move, Karen's perceptive and compassionate eyes observe where our bodies are stuck and where they are free.
Through gentle probing, suggestions, directions, and coaching, Karen allows us to explore our psychological resistance and emotional limitations. By guiding our bodies to a place of internal listening, she helps us discover and remember how we long to move. In this deep dialogue between the body and its expressive movement, we dissolve the body's unconscious holdings and move past the constraining beliefs of our lives. We find the courage to express who we truly are.
Through Essential Motion, we gain access to our true source of wisdom, the body's intelligence. As we inhabit our bodies more fully, we move through our days with ease, power, and grace. We free our true selves and are able to move wholeheartedly and powerfully towards our vision, goals, and dreams.
Karen explains: "I have a deep belief in the wisdom of the body and the rich, heartfelt quality of life that is available to us when we dwell within an enlivened body. There is a power that comes from contacting the self on a visceral level -- a power that leads to an opening of the heart and a return to who we truly are. When we experience the alive body, we feel our hearts and are able to express our true selves. I facilitate this transformation through movement -- the forgotten language of the soul."
