Intuitive Movement

  • Dovetail Studios 2853 West Montrose Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

Close your eyes + feel the resonance of the gong. As the vibrations move within your body, begin to move in ways you never have.

Discipline is one key that drives us to mastery in any creative endeavor. A pitfall is that we often times fall into patterns and routines that limit what is possible. Intuitive Movement is an opportunity to step out of your dance/exercise/movement practice and tap into a deeper state of flow, a state in which you can move in ways that you never have. Subtle cues will guide you through a series of general positions (lying down, sitting, all fours, standing), at each position you will spend time exploring. Live instruments such as crystal singing bowls, gong, shakers, and frame drum will accompany this offering and provide a deep resonance that will move within you and offer you additional inspiration to move in the ways that your body needs.

Jay Taylor is a musician, sound healer, shamanic practitioner, community builder, and urban farmer. He believes that everyone is doing their best at any given moment AND that expanding our version of 'best' can be accomplished through the release of stress, healing of trauma, and the loving consideration of the body. As a special education teacher in Chicago for the past 10 years, Jay understands that he must meet each person he works with right where they are in their consciousness. Through the use of the gong, crystal bowls, shakers, voice, and guitar, Jay takes participants on a Sound Voyage that results in the total relaxation of the physical body, re-tuning of the energetic body, and the release of accumulated heavy energy.
