Fear, Power & Beauty
with Adam Barley
26, 27 & 28 May 2023, Lisbon
Fear is real: our early warning system for danger, vital in times like these. It is primal, instinctive, and holds enormous power if we can find the courage to face it, feel it, and go through it.
Fear is the gateway to the heart. It's common knowledge: avoiding fear, we avoid ourselves, each other, life and love, whereas if we can find the courage to face it, feel it and go through it, the rewards for ourselves and our relationships are huge.
The core of fear is just energy, designed to wake us up and give us the energy to move. It's not fear that's the problem, it's that we avoid feeling its power as a deep physical-emotional experience, getting stuck in head trips instead. Fear doesn't paralyse you: you paralyse yourself, rather than let it awaken you.
Embodying this energy, we completely change our relationship to it, letting go of old frozen patterns and developing instead a deep vibrant instinct for moving through the world, enabling us to live life with enthusiasm and creativity.
Here we find courage, the golden thread that glows in the dark, so we can move through fear for the sake of love or adventure, alert to everything and ready for anything; essential life-skills for a whole-hearted experience of being human.
In this movement-based workshop you will learn to:
· Distinguish between head-trip fear and the animal instinct for danger
· Notice when you’re avoiding, suppressing or dissociating from your feelings
· Access the raw emotional energy of fear as a source of strength
· Appreciate fear as a life-giving, heart-opening agent of transformation
· Learn how to show up with others even when nervous or scared
The core nature of fear is a dynamic form of loving, a power that emerges directly from your vulnerability, a resource for energising and awakening your daily life.
You will receive practical tools that you can use to help you navigate your fears whilst staying whole-hearted and awake, ready for the kind of courageous creative action the world needs from us all now.
