April (and April Fools' Day)

April Fools' Day.jpg

I will be missing my favorite April's Fools Day celebration in San Francisco this year: Saint Stupid Day parade.

It's a decade long traditionally funny, amazing and provocative way to start the month and somehow to start the beginning of a new year of foolishness. Over and over again, celebrating human stupidity as a sort of enlightening religion. Sadly so, serious stupidity is both consciously and unconsciously practiced by many people of any age, gender, race and social status in our world. I don't even want to start listing how many stupid choices, so tragically, many of us do, unfortunately affecting every one else too. This practice is specially evident in this unbelievable historical moment, where our major leaders are leading us, successfully so, on a horribly sad and ruinous path.

I am not home at the moment, I am in Asia. Ecstatically grateful to be invited to offer the 5Rhythms practice and hold space for a short but intense journey through the emotions offering here, in Singapore, my latest Heartbeat workshop, Heart Warrior. Very honored and delighted to be on the southern hemisphere, to explore and celebrate, together with this new tribe, the power of this practice that transformed my life. The power that this moving meditation has on the connection within ourselves and with others, discovering our own potential and supporting our personal growth in integrity with our personal truth. To find the out that we can change the perception of our existence and then, that ultimately it can be the very first step to contribute energetically and practically to a much necessary change for a world that is in need of compassion and justice, more than ever. In need of open minded, open-hearted people willing to support resolutely for the necessary changes of rules and regulations of stale old systems and beliefs that are taking all of us on a dark path of destruction. Moving Meditation for moving action, to stand proudly for equality, human rights respect and care for our environment.

In this last three days, together with an amazing group of people coming from many different countries, speaking different languages and stepping into the path of the heart, I experienced the willingness and the power that comes from the unified field of our existence and that reveal itself so clearly when the conditions are present. So I dance proudly with this beautiful humans inspiring each other to step as peaceful warriors on the path to fight the greed, the shortsightedness and ultimately the stupidity generated by too many insane leaders and way too many brainwashed followers.

I believe we can. Together. Step after step. Breath after breath. Moving toward the light. With Love.

I Love February

Candy heart feb 2019 blog.jpg

February is when red hearts are pretty much everywhere. Flying balloons, candies, wish cards, t-shirts, jewelry and so on. The word Love is following or preceding sentences in every possible way. Romance is a must and so chocolate and champagne and flowers and...

And so here I am, bringing my contribution and my take to this celebration of Love

Love has been my mantra since long time ago. Not only the romantic love, that I enjoyed it and still do practice it very much, grateful to my adorable partner, but the one love that can be found in every instant of our existence. In every living being, flower, sound, color, poem, breath, song, dance and even in a grain of sand or a drop of rain.

I believe in Love. It is the most powerful and transformational energy that humans can experience. It is our life force, we all have it inside us, and we can fully appreciate it by embracing all our emotions.

Some of us might not see it, deny it, fear it, underestimate it, even reject it. That's when we would need to revisit our basic emotional map. To find out how powerful they are, how amazingly we can experience and relate to them, feeling, walking and dancing through them. Supported by the 5Rhythms practice and by activating dynamically the life force within us.

Embrace Love is the upcoming Heartbeat workshop I will be offering in San Francisco on February 15-17, supported by The City Waves.

Don't miss the opportunity to explore and embrace your emotions and to dance through them, to embrace your heart and the love that wants to flow through it. I’ll meet you there!

Sharing with you a testimonial from my last Heartbeat workshop in Oregon:

"How to describe my experience of Heartbeat with Alessandro Moruzzi facilitating? It was visceral, raw, pulsating and took me to a very clear place within myself...I felt my Staccato fire more fully within this workshop than I ever had previously. It was so rich and satisfying to witness my home community experience the Heartbeat Map for the first time...to witness fresh tears, rage, grief mixed with laughter. How can I put into words such an exposure? I felt and saw a cohesive group connect, crest, break open, enter grace and hold each other throughout the process. I witnessed dancers speaking their truth, voicing their needs and being fully supported by Alessandro and the Heartbeat Map he has been steeped in. The words that seem the most alive within me as I reflect ~ naked, inspired and grateful." - Adrienne Lee, 5Rhythms SpaceHolder at Columbia Gorge, Oregon

"In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
FEAR ANGER SADNESS JOY COMPASSION
The Focus: the spontaneous heart.
The Outcome: We can feel when our hearts are open, when they are closed, what all this has to do with love and how badly everybody needs and wants it." - 5Rhythms Global

To conclude I'd like to offer some quotes from Gabrielle Roth's Maps to Ecstasy, Chapter Two; Expressing the Heart | The Power of Loving:

Love is, essentially, the primal energy of all our emotions flowing.

Love is the healthy functioning of our whole emotional system.

The expression and release of our true feelings constitute the essence of loving.

Moving the body through the rhythms necessarily releases the emotions. Freeing the body leads inevitably to free the heart. Emotions need to flow like the blood circulating our body.

Express the heart, free the emotions to experience the power of loving.
