This August 2020 I did an interview with Love Coach and Best You Dating Coach, Barbara Klein, who has created the Nurture Self Summit.
I am still recovering from a serious illness last year and so Barbara’s topic of self nurturance really struck me as so timely for what I was going through personally and what collectively we are experiencing due to the pandemic. I have been sharing, teaching and exploring nurturance as a vital life force for the last twenty years ever since I discovered body-mind- centering with Annetta Luce in Sydney Australia.
In the interview with Barbara, I share how my experience with dance from a teenager was the start of everything I developed later in life to nurture and create a space of allowing for my body to feel peace and discover joy, wonder and magic. And now after major illness, tenderness and gentle movement has helped me to recover and reconnect to the essence of who I am so that my body has healed after almost not making it (more on that in the interview)
With the dance I discovered that tenderness allowed so much in my body that was not given permission to breathe in society. And as a consequence it led to me exploring the world of healing relationships because I saw how my heart opened to who I was. With gentleness and tenderness I was able to be more authentic, safe with my vulnerability and also not afraid of being who I am and instead I became curious, playful and deeply passionate for more.
As teenager I danced to duran duran to combat teenage depression. Later in my 20s as a dance performer I didn’t feel confident in my body. I had discovered deep connection to my spiritual side with sufi dance, but I didn’t enjoy who I was. So I developed a dance practice with myself and others to create a playful and safe place to accept all that I am, which ultimately is what Dance with Angela is and what I will be sharing in movement meditation classes online.
