The Spring Awakening is an online sisterhood circle lead by The Cheek of It! and Sacred Showgirl Founder Zoe Charles, sharing her unique processes and practices in creating magic both in your work and in your life.
We start March in darkness and end in the light. For the month of March we welcome the spring equinox, warmer, longer days into lives through movement.
It’s time for an awakening in the most beautiful -deep yawn, big stretch kinda way possible.
Starting slow and ending standing fully in our light! Let’s explore our magic through movement. This month long process is about allowing our bodies to MOVE US both physically and emotionally. Finding movement that feels good, coming home to our bodies, working with our natural rhythms and cycles. Getting present to the powerful magic and medicine available to us when we dance, move and breathe. Feeling into our intuition and aligning with our divine purpose and soul calling.
Through daily movement prompts, videos and a weekly movement class you can expect to occupy every part of your incredible body in the most delicious way. Incorporating burlesque, yoga, embodiment practices, full body shimmies, stretching, breath work and improvised dance. Using mantras and body unlocking intentions, we will bring everything; our struggles our joys into our bodies and allow movement to be a healer and revealer of what is next for us.
Just like the Spring this 28 day practice will end with a visual celebration of the journey. A Piece of movement or dance, a photograph, a story that shares our vulnerability, our courage and our beauty with the circle on our final day. A powerful affirmation to take us through the rest of the year and beyond.
This sisterhood circle will run online via a private facebook group daily for 28 days from March 7th until the April 4th. You will receive a daily prompt, a short video or post inviting you to move, dance, breathe or meditate inline with what inspires you, what lights you up, what makes you feel good. You will be encouraged to share and support each other as part of the journey.
We will also meet weekly on Sundays 8-9pm via Zoom (starting on the 7th March) to support, shimmy and share. Plus we will have two guest speakers (TBA) to talk to us about their magic processes through movement. The final Zoom meet on the 4th of April will be a visual celebration of the magic we have created and from this circle.
To make the most of the experience, you will need to commit to at least 15 minutes of movement a day. You may want to do more than this. Plus journalling and sharing
Who is this for?
Absolutely anyone who has an interest in getting present to connecting with and being lead by the magic in thier body and and/or anyone who knows or feels they would benefit from being part of a nourishing sisterhood circle. You may want to use this experience to create 2021, to work on a project like a new act or a new business idea. Or you might just feel the magic pulling you to take part without any need to know exactly what you’ll get out of it.
If you commit to maintaining a movement practice daily for the full month you will undoubtedly improve your health, wellbeing, fitness and posture but this is not a weight loss or fitness programme. this is the opposite of a ‘fix yourself’ experience, but rather a journey home to our bodies with love.
Whatever your reason for taking this time and space for yourself I cannot wait to welcome you to the circle and see what magic you create.
Please note this is not a Burlesque course but some burlesque movement techniques and philosophies will be used, plus you should expect some actual magic to occur and to fall in love FOR REAL with your fine self.
Start Date: March 7, 2021
Time: 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM
