Taking part in a movement session

Written by

I had no idea what to expect when we were invited to a Movement session. I mean, what does a movement session mean? What is that? And what do you wear to something when you don’t really know what it is? 

I needn’t have worried. It turned out to be exactly what it said it would be- but soon became more than that. 

We focussed on our fingers and followed them wherever they went. This meant that we were immersed in the moment. We shifted from self-conscious to being fully present. We moved how we wanted and in our own time. It was as simple and brilliant as that. 

Jack guided us through, and we never felt like we were being judged or rushed or told that we couldn’t or shouldn’t be doing it that way. 

This session was about us. 

It reminded me of being a young child set free in an open space on a warm day. Let loose at the park or the beach, and you could stretch your limbs and twist and turn in whatever way you felt like, and you enjoyed playing with the freedom and the simplicity of movement.
