'Truth' . . .

. . . is deeply personal these days. For me, it only gets a capital letter when it’s at the beginning of a sentence, for who knows anything beyond what we can actually see, hear, touch?

Faced with a thousand questions, dilemmas and profound challenges, maybe the best solution is to let go of grasping for solutions. To relax into the experience of not knowing, and trust the organic process of being alive to lead us right where we need to go. 

So with the awareness that nothing is certain and I could be completely mistaken, here are some reflections from a few decades of using embodiment practices to make my way through life. 

Maybe my perception of what’s true will have some resonance with you. I hope so. Please do comment if you’re moved to.

Wishing you well, 

Adam

When I first started using dance as a practice, I had already been sitting in meditation an hour a day for years, so it came naturally to me to do the same with movement. Almost religiously, I would clear aside an hour a day to dance. Then one day, I got the clear sense that today’s ‘lesson’ was not to practice at all. Rather shocked...

Light In The Dark

At times these days, I feel a psychological pressure, deeply personal to things going on in my life, yet at the same time ‘in the field’. The whole atmosphere on earth feels pressured. Yesterday, it got to me. I became so heated that I had to drive out somewhere wild...

This morning, I needed to use my voice. Loudly. I could feel it as soon as I woke up, so I hiked up onto the moors far away from any houses where I could shout my head off whilst dancing like a maniac. I don't need...

What's going on? Why is this massive wave of intergenerational trauma catching up with us now? How might we respond?

Twin currents ripping through our human collective On the one hand: a hysterical frenzied appetite for information that has now reached astronomical proportions — a vast tsunami overwhelming us all with a cacophony of data...
