During this Covid-19 virus pandemic I am not teaching any classes in person.
I have a 5 Rhythms Movement class each Tuesday morning 10-11.30am.
I will be starting Open Floor Movement Meditation Cycle classes on Thursday evenings 7-8pm on Feb.4th
If you wish to join email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also a number of One-Day workshops each month to April.
All details on the calendar of this website
Finally, I have a series of mini movement sessions (8/10/12 minute long) made for Connemara Community Radio which I would like to share with you under the Mini Movement Series section.
Stay well, stay safe and stay sane.
Let me share this beautiful poem by Mario de Andrade (San Paolo 1893-1945) Poet, novelist, essayist and musicologist.
MY SOUL HAS A HAT
I counted my years
& realized that I have
Less time to live by,
Than I have lived so far.
I feel like a child who won a pack of candies: at first he ate them with pleasure
But when he realized that there was little left, he began to taste them intensely.
I have no time for endless meetings
where the statutes, rules, procedures & internal regulations are discussed,
knowing that nothing will be done.
I no longer have the patience
To stand absurd people who,
despite their chronological age,
have not grown up.
My time is too short:
I want the essence,
my spirit is in a hurry.
I do not have much candy
In the package anymore.
I want to live next to humans,
very realistic people who know
How to laugh at their mistakes,
Who are not inflated by their own triumphs
& who take responsibility for their actions.
In this way, human dignity is defended
and we live in truth and honesty.
It is the essentials that make life useful.
I want to surround myself with people
who know how to touch the hearts of those whom hard strokes of life
have learned to grow with sweet touches of the soul.
Yes, I’m in a hurry.
I’m in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.
I do not intend to waste any of the remaining desserts.
I am sure they will be exquisite,
much more than those eaten so far.
My goal is to reach the end satisfied
and at peace with my loved ones and my conscience.
We have two lives
& the second begins when you realize you only have one.
