Sick and Seeking is hosted by Leslie Field who, after a diagnosis in her late teens of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), has been on a 22-year journey of healing and self-discovery. In this podcast, Leslie invites you to join her for intimate, honest and heartfelt conversations with others who are also on their own healing journeys as they live with and manage the long-term effects of “dis-ease” in the body. Listen to the stories of courageous people who, in the face of an uncertain medical future, are on a quest to go deeper into their bodies, beyond symptom and diagnosis—or in some cases no diagnosis—to reach a place of intuitive knowing, healing and transformation. This podcast is, above all, an exploration in healing and examines a variety of modalities and knowledge from conventional medicine to holistic and complementary therapies that bring a spiritual, psychological and mystical perspective to bodily healing in our modern culture.
On this episode I speak with Holly Wodetzki of Sensual Embodied Dance about the richness of life that can arise in the body through dance. Using her signature dance methodology, Holly helps women come back to intense aliveness in their bodies.
- Holly’s decision to shift her personal daily practice from yoga to free-form dance
- Noticing the tightly held places in women’s body become more pronounced when you ask them to move towards pleasure and sexuality in using movement
- Exploring the erotic and sexuality in the body, and what that means as a pulse of life
- Using a practice like dance to dissolve boundaries and feel the unity and interconnection with life and nature
- Sensitizing and becoming intimate with feelings in the body to allow life and emotions to move through you
- Using dance as an opportunities for women to let go, release, unfold and unravel tension in the body so they can be more open to embodying the full spectrum of life
- Many women feel disconnected from their lower body and have chronic pelvis tension
- Embodiment and dissociation, and pendulating in-between these states
- How music can invoke different emotional states and open their body to new ways of moving
“But when we have that capacity to let life move through us, then things don't get stuck. We don't get the residue of unexpressed experiences and emotions stuck in our body…” – Holly Wodetzki
“But the question is always, will you dance with this too? And I think for people who are sick and or have loved ones that are sick or going through very difficult things, the question is still, can I dance with this too? Even when it is so painful, would I also dance with this too? but in the biggest sense of, this being part of my story that doesn't define who I am, but this is part of this moment. And can I dance even when it's so hard and I'm in pain?” – Holly Wodetzki
