Non Linear Movement is a profound and actually kind of weird thing.
Essentially it's an embodiment practice that involves moving the body. That is the short answer.
What makes it highly complex (and in my opinion awesome) is the depth with which you can go with it. When I first practiced it, I didn't get it at all.Coming from a dance background I was used to moving my body.It felt somewhat like just moving to music for me.
However, I now see that it can take some time initially to close the gap in perceiving your totality, especially when you aren't used to moving with your emotions and your fullness of being. But through regular practice I was able to close this gap and go deeper, experiencing new layers of myself.
Moving the body became moving EVERYTHING!
And when I say EVERYTHING I mean there are layers of your body that you don't know about yet. Subtle contours of feeling that you have no vocabulary for and don't even know exist until you decide you finally want to get to know yourself.
It requires you to feel...
I was able to notice my deep thought process whilst moving.
I was able to feel into the emotional content my body was experiencing at that time.
And more, I was able to be with that and therefore myself, developing a deeper connection with the totality of me.
I'm learning how to let emotions run through me clearly the more I practice, and not hold residual emotional 'stuff’
This is a brilliant practice for opening up the throat and being able to speak yourself with an open heart.
I feel more connected to others and the earth in general because I am connecting deeply with myself.Experiencing more of 'the oneness’ if you like.Life is richer.
Now this practice isn't easy.It takes a certain kind of determination to move regularly and consistently when you may not feel like it. Resistance is massive when it comes to moving and feeling.
It also takes a whole lot of courage to go inside yourself in this way and encounter your shit.Cause shit tends to stink.
BUT! A funny thing starts to happen.Your shit turns into treasure!
Your life will take on a much brighter hue!
You will come to understand and value emotions like never before and you will be able to turn them into your teachers.
All the while constantly deepening and expanding your bodily capacity for feeling the full spectrum of emotions; from intense teary eyed pure joy to abject sorrow.
And the best part is you will come to love and accept it all as part of your human experience.
Now this work isn't for everyone!
But if you're one of those rare people that desire to truly know life, understand that this knowing of life is a journey of curiosity, exploration and trust and will require some practice on your part?
Then I think you’ll enjoy Non Linear Movement very much.
