This article explores my connection between Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement and being and working in Nature. I am interested in how connecting with ourselves as body enables us to experience ourselves as part of nature rather than lording over it. There are some examples of how I facilitate groups in CD workshop called Spirit of Place and in other shorter experiences of moving outdoors.
I also share a belief that paying attention to inner ecology through body mindfulness and movement enhances our participation in deep ecology.
