The Power of Presence
When we are dancing and in our ‘flow' we are fully present. Instead of being locked in thoughts of the past and future, we are fully in the moment, with our senses heightened to the beauty and vividness of our surroundings.
Our brain waves slow down from the busy, thinking ‘monkey’ mind of beta, to the more lucid and reflective state of alpha.
Recent research has highlighted how alpha brain wave activity can reduce depression and increase creativeness . We can release the source of our fears, worries and anxiety and feel more calm, peaceful and grounded.
We feel vital and alive, fully ‘plugged’ into the universal life force, in what could be considered a ‘whole body mindfulness’.
