Workshops

with Amara Pagano

The Azul Workshops are designed to explore individual topics that provide a foundation for the work of personal transformation.

They serve as an introduction to the deeper exploration of the retreats. They are open to all and no previous experience is required.

The Four Orientations of Azul

The Azul workshops are centered around the four orientations that support a deeper experience on the dance floor and in life. The four orientations are: Listening, Allowing, Opening, Moving Towards. The orientations are the gateways that allow you to enter the Azul spiral from different angles and are the threads of the fabric woven through Azul.

Listening 

Is the basis of it all. Our primary focus on the dance floor is cultivating and practicing our capacity to listen through the body.

Allowing 

Has to do with our ability to allow life to be as it is. It is to simply not resist what is happening and not limit our experience of it.

Opening 

Is that which extends us further. There is choice in opening: we can choose to open our heart, we choose to open to the moment. And that opening is what creates space.

Moving Towards 

Roots us in the certainty that everything in life is part of our growth. Moving towards our pain is the first powerful step in moving towards personal freedom. It is moving towards that transforms suffering into joy.

“Light has an exquisite quality that illuminates the shadows and makes them beautiful. 

If we apply the same knowing to the experience of relating to the parts of us that create negative patterns and cause suffering to ourselves and others, we open to the possibility for the light to transform these parts and create beauty.

As we bring light to our movement through listening, allowing, opening and moving towards, we begin to illuminate the beauty in all of who we are. 

This illumination is the awakening of love.”

Living Fully Loving Deeply

Milan, Italy | May 18-20, 2018

Salzburg, Austria | June 8-10, 2018

Imagine the possibility of allowing life to be as it is.

Imagine not resisting what life is asking of you.

Imagine resting in this fluidity, knowing that you can meet all of life’s challenges and opportunities.

Imagine that this connects you to the physical experience of living fully and loving deeply.

In Azul we work with 4 orientations: Listening, Opening, Allowing and Moving Towards. In this workshop, we explore ALLOWING.

In the motion of allowing life to be as it is we find that it is much richer and deeper than we had perceived. The sensation of living fully and loving deeply is felt when we are fully able to allow this experience of being in a body, here in this moment, with an open heart.

Open

Philadelphia, USA | May 11-13, 2018

Bucharest, Romania | June 1-3, 2018

To open is awakening to the moment. It is feeling what is.

There is often a way in which we close when we do not get what we want… until we discover that we have a choice to stay open even when we are not getting what was expected.

In Azul we work with 4 orientations: Listening, Opening, Allowing and Moving Towards. In this workshop, we explore OPENING.

The ability to stay open gives us the courage to live in profound intimacy with all things and experience the inherent freedom that comes from our willingness to open.

“Our greatest challenge is to sustain an open heart in all situations in life.” Prem Baba

Transforming Suffering to Joy

Camden, Maine, USA | January 5-7, 2018

By choosing to move towards the moment, we begin to meet life in a more intimate way.

Often we do not like what is coming towards us or what is happening inside of us and – without even thinking – we push it away. By choosing to move towards the moment, we begin to meet life in a more intimate way.

In Azul we work with 4 orientations: Listening, Opening, Allowing and Moving Towards. In this workshop, we explore MOVING TOWARDS.

This orientation roots us in the certainty that everything in life is part of our growth. By anchoring ourselves in the practice of moving towards we find greater ease with our life experience.

We can also use this practice to move towards our suffering and begin to unravel the knots that bind us. It is the motion of moving towards, that ultimately transforms our suffering into joy.

Voice of the Heart

Rome, Italy | March 16-18, 2018

Zurich, Switzerland | March 23-25, 2018

Munich, Germany | April 27-29, 2018

Olympia, USA | October 19-21, 2018

We have so many voices that chime inside of us – dance is one way to listen through the chatter and hear the voice of your deepest knowing.

Listening is the key that opens the door to hearing the voice of the heart. Since the heart is experienced in the body, Listening through the body connects us to our higher wisdom.

The practice of Listening brings us into a dialogue with life and strengthens our ability to receive and respond to the commands of the heart.  Our spiritual and personal evolution is guided through this center that aligns our humanity and divinity in service of the greater good.  

In the Azul path of personal transformation there are 4 Orientations: Listening, Allowing, Opening and Moving Towards. This workshop focuses on Listening.
