Valentine’s? For Real . . .

Valentine's? For Real . . .

I like the idea of a day to celebrate loving, despite the commercial hype. But the reality is, many of us are alone right now, or in relationships that are cracking under the strain of lockdown isolation.

 

So here are three music mixes for you to journey with, whether you have company or not:

  • If you’re furious, irritated, pissed off, annoyed, irked, frustrated, enraged, or any of the other variants of anger, go for it here. Let it out.

Please do watch the video below before you use them. If you’re still not sure, especially regarding moving through your anger or grief, then maybe hold off and get some tuition. If you feel anxious about bringing up feelings which you then can’t handle, maybe ask for some support from myself or a therapist.

 

Otherwise, I hope you get something out of these journeys. Let me know how you get on?

 

Blessings on your loving!

Spiritual Practice, Healing, and Art
Adam Barley | Mar 16 2022
During my work, stuff comes up. There’s often a strong sense of moving through it in a way that feels like healing, to use the original meaning of the word which is related to wholeness, and holiness. We become more completely ourselves.  Because of this common experience, there’s a tendency to think of it as ...
Grieving is Medicine

Everything seems normal here.  I can hear the guy who lives across the street fixing up the garden shed he’s been working on for months.  The sparrows are a riot in the tangled threads of Russian vine spilling over into our garden from next door.  I’m just back from taking my youngest to school, all ...
Movement Practice in Focus
Adam Barley | Aug 3 2021
Sometimes it’s great to just dance. Never mind trying to get anywhere or achieve anything. Just dance.  Often however, I need to take a step within myself. I want to achieve something, such as to get out of my head or release some pent-up feelings, enquire into a relationship dynamic or clarify a life-choice, etc. Things like that.  Knowing clearly what our intention makes ...
Movement, home, alone?
Adam Barley | Jun 7 2021
The land for miles around where we live is littered with my graves.  The tree I danced underneath last year, showered with blossom; the hill where I sang to the rising sun; the dark ground I pawed at in anguish; the cliff edge where I wept and rocked myself back into connection; the favourite bit ...
Men, Violence and Evolution
Adam Barley | Apr 18 2021
A white man in his fifties . . .  For many people, I am automatically and understandably representative of ‘the problem’. It’s easy for me to see that point of view. Humans like me have been and are particularly instrumental in perpetuating the horrifying story of separation and dominance that is ravaging the planet. For me, the dominance-battle most close ...
What? How? When?
Adam Barley | Feb 25 2021
What? How? When? WHAT are you struggling with? HOW can movement help? WHEN is the right time for something other than movement? This is the recording from the recent Q&A session on movement practice. Some interesting themes came out...
