   I believe in the healing power of embodiment and creative expression!
   Wow! This week marks four years of Inner Rhythm as a weekly dance practice in Santa Cruz. I am so grateful for what we have created together.
   I remember when I was too afraid to start this weekly dance session. Afraid of failing. Afraid of succeeding. Afraid of being seen. I remember walking through life pretending I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Eventually, the pain of not doing what I knew I wanted to do became bigger than the fear, and I had to jump in. And now, what we experience each week together is better than I was ever willing to dream! With tears of gratitude, I am offering a deep bow of thanks and respect to all those who are, have been, and will be a part of this movement.

   Equinox, Harvest
   What are you harvesting from your experience in the dance that supports you in the daily dance?
Benefit for Veterans
   Did you know that all off my dance related offerings are free for veterans?  There are 2.3 million American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and 2.6 million Vietnam veterans who fought in Vietnam. Please invite your veteran friends to join us. All proceeds from this night will be donated in support of veterans on their healing journey.
   In the past, we have donated to Warrior Songs

Integrity

I have an agreement with myself to move authentically. This authenticity comes from a source deep within me. I love when I’m able to get out of my own way, sufficiently, so that I am BEing moved from this source. And, this is necessary to fulfill my agreement; to be in integrity with myself. ~Hamid

Heads Up…
Inner Rhythm w/ Daniel Mollner Feb 14th and 21st 8:30 – 10:30 at the Yoga Center of Santa Cruz, 428 Front St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060 (just a couple doors up from the 418)

Inner Rhythm: Free For All!

This Thursday, Sept. 20, at the 418 Project

Aloha dancing tribe. Inner Rhythm began two years ago at the Chi Center as an intimate, humble tribe … now, we are an intimate, humble tribe … and we are a powerful creative force in this community—supporting freedom, authenticity, transformation, integrity, and the safety for us all to find our way.

I am heartfully grateful for everyone’s support, presence, and attendance these last two years. Thank you for showing up once or a hundred times!

As a token of my appreciation, I am excited to invite everyone to come to Inner Rhythm this Thursday for free. YES, FREE FOR ALL!

And the Fall Equinox … midpoint between the darkest and the lightest …

 

Inner Rhythm

Inner Rhythm is free-form ecstatic dance/movement meditation. It is a practice of being present in the moment, and in our bodies. Being authentic. Feeling, healing and transforming. Witnessing and being witnessed.

We move into allowing and feeling the full range of this human experience. When we really settle into ourselves and get out of our own way, there is room for healing and transformation.

Inner Rhythm is a place where we can safely surrender to the energy of what has either been locked or repressed within us.  We can also be empowered to awaken dormant passions, opening both inward and outward into full expression.  We experience greater capacity to live, move, and be in total freedom, responsibly.

Inner Rhythm Has Moved!

Still every Thursday 8-10pm.
418 Project, 418 Front St. Santa Cruz.

Honesty… with self and others. When we really listen to our Inner Rhythm- to our teacher, there IS movement that can express what is there; and when we are willing to Allow this Honest expression, even surrender to it, follow it … that is what I’m pointing to.

With Humility and Gratitude,
Hamid

Inner Rhythm is Moving!

Inner Rhythm is moving to the 418 Project 8-10pm beginning May 10th.
(Yes, it was gonna be April 26th. Now its May 10th)

Many of us are very excited about landing in this new home for Inner Rhythm. The choice to move on from the Chi Center has been a challenging one. The energy there has definitely supported a deep, safe container. And, it has been the birthplace of Inner Rhythm in Santa Cruz. We have pretty much maxed out the space at the Chi Center; which is the main reason for the move. I look forward to sharing a bigger space with you all!

If you haven’t yet been to Inner Rhythm, I invite you to join us at the Chi Center before we move. Come experience this sweet, charged, ecstatic vibe in it’s peak~ just before it is re-birthed into the 418.
