Presence for Peace – Daily Dance Dates

Winter Solstice 2022 to Equinox 2023

True peace is not merely the absence of tension. It is the presence of justice
Martin Luther King, Jr.

DANCE DATES (9 min practices) sunrise and sunset daily (join any or all/as it suits your time zone)

Dance Dates allow us to be alone and be together. They provide a route to share and to be. They give us an opportunity to focus on what matters. In this time of turmoil, presence to peace becomes urgent. We can practise this daily.

Daily Dance Dates are body mind movement practices focused on stillness, mindful movement and deep play. During this practice we will meditate, move together and self-research in stillness and action, then in relationship with each other as part of a growing dance of emergence into a renewed sense of wellness.

Daily Dance Dates are a 9-minute practice designed by Bernadette Divilly in response to the transitioning through the Covid challenge. They are altered regularly to respond to present moment needs. It is a simple practice demonstrating connectivity while apart. All participants engage individually with the programme daily at the same time. Though alone we are connected in the energetic field of being together at the same time, though in different environments and parts of the world. It is a way to be alone and be together, it is a way to share and to be.

Dance dates just require you to participate at the appointed time, sunrise and sunset.
Practices can be carried out individually, or for enhanced experience if possible anchor your Dance Date with one other person (across age/culture etc.) – someone you can be physically in the same space as or via phone call etc.
It’s a good idea for each participant to set their own intention for Daily Dance Dates.

You will need the following;
notebook pens drawing material etc.

Daily Dance Date 9 minute practice is divided into three components of three minute duration (3/3/3)
3 minutes of meditation
3 minutes of movement
3 minutes of connection (record your experience though the written word, drawing etc., or verbally with your dance date partner)
