Fierce Loving

ZeroOne workshop with Adam Barley in Brussels.

The art of creative conflict

Loving is fierce! At least sometimes. To truly love, we have to be up for being passionate, disturbing the peace and giving our wild-hearted nature some breathing space.

We need harmonious connection with others, but we also have the need for authenticity, and because we are all different, we have to deal with conflict.

It takes a certain fierceness of the heart to stand your ground, disagree with others, defend innocence, and make a difference in the world. To be fiercely loving is to wield the emotional energy often called ‘anger’ in a skilful way, in service to life and love. To do that requires us to clear the baggage of the past, so we’re not carrying around childhood rage, just waiting to fire it at anyone who touches our trigger points.

This is steady, long-term work. It takes practice, compassion, patience, courage and persistence. ZeroOne is an embodied meditation practice for individual and collective evolution. Fierce Loving is a movement-based journey that empowers the process.

You will learn how to embody, express and release emotional energy, take wholehearted responsibility for your anger, let go of baggage from the past, access the four essential gifts of fierce loving and engage in conflict as a creative, life-affirming practice that benefits everybody.

To attend, you must be willing to dance deep, see the truth, and go beyond what you know. You’ll need some previous experience with movement as a practice. We also recommend you have some resources in your life to integrate deep feelings, such as a regular movement practice or embodied therapeutic work. Please ask if you’re unsure.

I’m a big cat hunter and a butterfly with a broken wing, with a teaching style that tends to both depth and vulnerability. I have faith in us human beings, and am passionately committed to being part of the evolutionary jump we are engaged in.
