"Our essential nature is immobility, the great force of life in which all movements appear."
J. de Salzmann
G.I. Gurdjieff created these dances based on the perennial wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions to help us to connect with our inner world through the physical body. This connection between the mind and the body is the heart of the Work
The sacred dances express that which remains hidden for most of us, an unknown dimension, the reality of a higher level of Being. Their practice propitiates the state of attention we need to move beyond our ordinary condition.
Our limited repertoire of movements is closely related to our thought patterns and ways of feeling. These dances make possible the observation of these automatisms as well as the opening to new, more authentic spaces.
Another foundation is the immobility that underlies every movement, even in the moments of greater external agitation there is a center where quietness reigns, that is where our true Self resides. These dances are a path to that place.
Through the development of attention and always in connection with the body, we learn to know our psychology and accept it, they are a path to Presence, observation and inner growth.
