A SACRED JOURNEY OF MUSIC, MOVEMENT AND SOUL
Sacred travelers can hear the call of faraway places and distant lands, and we love the experience that international travel brings. Our senses come alive in the spice markets of Marrakesh, our lungs fill with crisp mountain air in places like Tibet or Zanskar, and our bodies are refreshed in the rainforests of Costa Rica. As a person who intentionally seeks international travel and beautiful places, I am always planning my next trip. Quite unexpectedly one day, I found myself not on an outer journey to a remote and exotic land, but instead, on an inner journey of body, mind, and spirit. It was called, “Soul Motion” and Mark Ensweiler was my guide.
Mark has been in the healing arts for over 35 years and has an impressive background as a Board Certified Licensed Chiropractor, Certified Yoga Instructor, and Certified Soul Motion Teacher. When asked about Soul Motion, Mark said, “I continue to find these wonderful “conscious dance/movement” practices to be an ongoing way to support healing, creativity, (movement & seated) meditation, and inspiration in my own life and it’s a great way to share meaningful time with others as well in a supportive group setting. Each individual Soul Motion class is complete unto itself and yet there are a wide variety of “practices” that can be experienced in a class and this is the beauty of Soul Motion.”
An average session will last approximately 75 minutes, as Mark skillfully guides you through a variety of music, and at times will instruct you to connect to specific areas of your body. Most of the journey is freeform, with no talking; an inner journey for you to solely take. There are no limitations as you follow your breath and let your body move in ways that it needs, as it releases old stagnant energy, aches and pains and everyday stressors. The diversity of music allows you to choose your own movement whether it is slow, standing still, or dancing wildly. Each piece of music is carefully selected by Mark and includes a mix of international vibes, spiritual tunes and a crescendo of notes that takes you on an inner journey that is uniquely individual and yours alone to take.
Music has been well known to a be a potent healer for people in a variety of ways. Music soothes the spirit in difficult times and lifts the spirit in times of celebration. Movement is also recognized as an important element of healing, and when you combine music and movement, you have a powerful combination of personal expression.
If you are seeking a new experience, want to connect more deeply with yourself, or simply love music and movement, take a trip through Soul Motion. There is no greater journey than one to know your authentic self…
Mark is offering an upcoming series, “Soul Motion Movement Meditation”; sessions begin this fall at Dance Dynamics in Plover.
