Rivers flow along in a continuous stream of movement; day follows night as night follows day; trees allow their roots to spread out into the earth in order that they can grow up strong and well supported.
Flowing is a state of continuous movement, of being fluid, flexible and rooted. Flowing movements are rounded and fluid with lots of curves and circles which have no definable beginnings or ends. It is the rhythm of being grounded, earthed and attuned to oneself and others.
In flowing we learn how to “go with the flow” and not to build our lives around resisting or wishing things were different. We learn to tune into our own needs and instincts, knowing when we are tired, hungry, happy, sad, bored or lonely.
The shadow side of flowing is apathy, inertia and at its darkest, depression.
