Biodanza and the power of Vitality
Hello, Vincent Leleux here from Biodanza.London, weekly Biodanza class in Kingston.
Today I want to read this list of words and I want to talk to you about it later.
liveliness, life, energy, animation, spirit, spiritedness, high-spiritedness, vivacity, exuberance, buoyancy, bounce, vibrancy, verve, vim, pep, brio, zest, zestfulness, sparkle, spark, effervescence, dynamism, passion, fire, vigour, forcefulness, ardour, zeal, relish, gusto, push, drive, punch, elan, zip, zing, fizz, get-up-and-go, oomph, pizzazz, feistiness, VITALITY.
All these words are synonyms of Vitality, That’s the list of synonyms of vitality I found on Google. I love this list, and if you come to the weekly class, you will experience vitality, whatever is the word you put on it.
But in this list, there is half of what vitality is that is missing. It’s not a surprise, because in our society, we strongly believe that vitality is this masculine energy of taking action. Being very active, a lot of energy.
Action, action, action
Actually, there is the other side of vitality which is : slowing down, resting, sleeping, being in receptivity instead of being into full action. That’s why you can see so many people who are in burn out. Because we only believe in this energy of ACTION ACTION ACTION
If you just had one night of not sleeping, you already know by experience that if you don’t rest, if you don’t sleep, if you don’t take time off, if you don’t take time where you can do NOTHING, then you will quickly run out of all your energy.
Both sides of Vitality
In Biodanza, we pay equal attention to both of these sides. You will experience a lot action, with a lot of energy, but you will also experience “slowing down, feeling more, because to feel more we need to slow down. But we are so afraid of feeling more, we only want to focus on actions and results. You won’t go very far that way.
I invite you to experience both sides of Vitality in my weekly class in Kingston. On this Thursday, we will do a very special session about feeling the FIRE within, and expressing the fire outside. Showing your fire, your passion and all what fire is.
I really encourage you to come to my weekly class on Thursday. I look forward to see you.
Let’s dance Life.
