The other day, I went for a walk with a friend of mine to Hackney Marshes and encountered this magnificent willow tree. The friend told me that willow trees grew between the land and water, and mythically meant the connection between this world and the underworld.
I have a great fascination with the in-betweenness or coexistence of two or more different qualities.
Water – Land
Fluids in the body – Bones and flesh
Energy and spirit of a person – Physical body as matter
Underworld – This world – Devine
Dream – Here and now
Past – Present – Future
In my work, I get to be in touch with these wonderous paradoxical states through a client’s and my own being and moving.
We are moving – We are being
We control our movement and posture – We relax into our bodies
We fight against ailments – We listen to the ailments
We win health – We invite heath to express itself
I love to embrace the whole experience and I love my journey.
I hope you love yours too.
