Talk from Simon Howell. Exploring the relationship between spirituality, movement and states of mind.

“We are delighted that the SHIFT Project residence at St Laurence, will give us the chance to explore the relationship between spirituality, movement and states of mind.

The American spiritual theologian, Episcopal priest and activist for gender justice & eco-justice, Rev Dr Matthew Fox, put it like this:

Movement & dance “takes us out of our heads and connects us to the earth again. The lower chakras get engaged. Joy results. Celebration happens....” It also “demands breathing, and so it fulfills ancient teachings that connect breath with spirit. This connection is found not only in the biblical story of the Creator breathing the divine breath into the clay to make it a living human, but also in the ancient languages of Africa where the word for ‘dance’ is the same as the word for ‘breath’ which is also the word for ‘spirit’. (‘Breath’ and ‘Spirit’ are the same word (ruah) in Hebrew as well).”

I will be exploring these themes further in my brief introductory address.

Everybody welcome
