Bears Dancing in Powerful-Work
Bears have done their own Work which is separate yet intertwined with relational Work. They have learned to compassionately hold their own pain and self-deception. And, so, in the dance of any one day, they are less dependent on practiced steps, less reliant on other bears.
Awakened from slumber, bears are living in their own Power, and, so, in intimate moments they are spontaneous, moving toward each other, expressing through eyes, and play, and touch, synchronizing in their hops and spins, feeling each other’s pulse and presence and rhythm.
Personal Powerful-Work extends our influence beyond ourselves. It allows us to move nose to nose tenderly and help each other heal, releasing both our sambas and our sorrows.
