"We have fallen into the place where everything is music." Mevlana Rumi
Sacredplay is a way of cultivating and becoming an embodied loving presence.
Sacredplay is a way of experiencing life with curiosity, a willingness to learn and to improvize, and a continuous return to the practice of whatever helps us stay awake to the creative force from which all life is born.
Sacredplay is an invitation to be vigilant in our awareness of others, it's a reminder, to each of us, that each of us, is dealing with and healing the heartaches of our lives.
In Sacred, we remember the preciousness and precariousness of life, all that it takes and is given to make this moment happen, our many ancestors, their suffering and celebrations. The lessons learned and learning, as we walk, dance, run, fall, slip and even fall asleep on the path. Sacred is keeping in our minds and hearts the future generations depending on us to be wise and to be of service. Living with this awareness is a form of embodied activism.
Then in play, there's a joyousness a fervent determination to make good of our time, to keep it light even while challenged.
When we play, we are willing to explore and take risks. When we play we remember life needn't be laborious, that we are part of
the music, the magic and the medicine. Thus our lives become infused with gratitude.
Sacredplay is the experience of our life as a unique healing path to authenticity and wellness.
How do we stay willing and open and "up" for play, when pain, whether it be physical, emotional or mental, is weighing us down? The answer is as varied and diverse as we are. There's not one prescription, we get to make it up as we go, we can play with what works, each of us filling our own medicine baskets with a collection of what nourishes and renews.
