In the dance we move between wild mountain and deep ocean, finding ourselves again and again..

Sometimes a shift in consciousness comes from practice.
Of working closely with soil & plants
Sometimes this arrives with a cultivation of a body consciousness
Such as yoga, meditation or conscious dance
Like wild nature our bodies have a degree of intelligence that comes from awareness through connection
Cultivated through intuition rather than logic.
This deep dive into conscious practice I work with through improvised dance & a garden landscaping business.
The relationship between the logic or scientific understanding and the intuitive body felt sense.
Whilst founding and developing the charity Moor Trees, I began to not only learn more about cultivating wildness and the inherent wisdom of succession, I also began a journey of meeting my own inherent wisdom, the sensing of the landscape with my body, rather than just reading the landscape with my eyes.
Through learning a somatic movement practice, deep dive dance was born to cultivate consciousness behind the eyes.
We can read data of studies of species, we can then learn how this translates on the ground by how it looks in the wild.
Similarly an awareness of the enteric brain can be found, how we develop this stream of consciousness also adds information of what is happening as a relationship with the wild.
