The Power of Paradox
An Online Committed Series

with Kathy Altman

Starting April 16, 2021

Every Friday for 6 weeks

10am - 12 noon PDT

Only paradox comes anywhere near to comprehending the fullness of life. 

-C.G. Jung

 

In a world that appears more polarized by the minute, we are wise to study the organic nature of paradox.  

 

Paradox is inherent in everything. We expand our chest, our back contracts. We move towards one choice, we move away from another. We face the outside world each day, yet live inside our own internal world view, all at the same time. We have become accustomed and sometimes inured to these daily contradictions. 

 

What if we mined the practice of staying open when more than one thing is true at the same time? What if we used paradox to fuel creative possibilities? 

 

“The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposite ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

Ancient Chinese wisdom reminds us that everything in life contains the seed of its apparent opposite. Herein lies the gift that all great masters point us towards;

investigate opposites in our bodies, hearts and minds. Attach to neither and embrace both.

 

This is soul retrieval work and a path to freedom, both on and off the dance floor. 

 

Our tools will include Open Floor movement, sitting meditation, and verbal inquiry as vehicles for integration.

 

It takes courageous awareness to embrace both our humanity and divinity. This series will help hold our feet to our own fire; to be exactly who we are and know ourselves to be more than we can imagine. 

 

Group is limited to 40 people. It is now full. Please contact Nicole to be put on a wait list. Nicole@openfloor.org
