Ariellah and Darker Still Productions present:
Circling Sorrows: Suffering Explorations – The Ache of Disconnect
Circling Sorrows is a walk in the garden of decline that is our world. Struggling to emerge from the dominant paradigm of disconnect…returning back into the world of connection.
With each exploration of movement and sound, there comes ache and awakening.
Awakening to suffering.
Awakening to connection.
Awakening to awareness.
Awakening and remembering our most truest, inner selves.
Dismal Times, Revolutionary Connection…
It is a place where shadows are explored, suffering is given voice, and the erosion of connection is exposed. It is an awakening to the ache of disconnect, so to speak, as we find ourselves in the garden of decline, stuck in the paradigm of disconnect.
Our world holds both personal and collective trauma. All of life is suffering…and our desire to be free from it. The first step is to dive, willingly, into our grief, our loss, our suffering, our trauma. From there we can be available to come from a place of more love and compassion, allowing us to reconnect with ourselves, each other and the natural world around us. From this place, we can then forge new stories as a new, more connected, dominant paradigm.
From UNconscious to WE-conscious.
THIS, is revolutionary connection.
We invite you to immerse in this deep dive exploration and inhalation with us…
Music is Life!
