  My main interest is in life energy, how it flows and what blocks the flow.  The vocabulary I have learnt for this process is in the Five Rhythms movement practice of Gabrielle Roth which describe life energy  through 'Flowing', 'Staccato,' 'Chaos,' 'Lyrical' and 'Stillness.' 
The tools I value are:

  • Drumming - a great way to move our own energy and activate the energy of others.
  • Dance - letting our body speak its truth and by moving its energy, heal ourselves.
  • Creative play - giving ourselves permission to be free.
  • Ritual theatre and sweat lodge - making space for our spirit.

Our energy for life is our creative energy.  I have a fascination with creativity, creative blocks and the relationship between our inner child, inner parent and mature adult self.  I feel that understanding the nature of this relationship is the key to accessing our creative flow. 
I believe in the way of the body, in opening a path for communication between the different parts of ourselves:
The spirits of our animal parts;
Our elemental nature - water, fire, earth, air and spirit - the Five Rhythms of life;
And the younger layers of ourselves.
By their nature these parts of us may need non-verbal or non-intellectual ways of communication.  Making space for this communication is one of the vital challenges facing our civilization.
My desire is to do this and make it fun; to go for joy, even if it means moving through difficulty on the way.  My goal is to be whole.
