‘Natural emotions now serve you well, though quite how this happens you never can tell!’
Today, emotional intelligence is recognised thanks to the work of people such as Daniel Goleman who said,
“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels”. Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ.
Biodanza allows ‘the mind that feels’ to come into its own
Biodanza allows ‘the mind that feels’ to come into its own and discover that it inhabits our bodies, closer than a heartbeat away. Biodanza makes it natural – and fun – to observe, explore and accept our own and others emotions, understand them and regulate them so our actions come from a place of love.
Absolutely central to Rolando Toro’s system is the term ‘Affectivity’ meaning ‘Affective Intelligence’ – intelligence in the service of love, happiness and joy of living. Every exercise has this quality embodied within it. It is transformative in all relationships and it opens up our hearts, as Altair, Co-Director of the London School of Biodanza explains as he tells his story:
‘Eighteen months after starting the Biodanza process, I had a relationship with the first love of my life. I had had several relationships before. This was very different. My heart fully opened to another for the first time. I am quite sure in retrospect that this was to do with the additional heart-opening that Biodanza creates. This heart opening process has continually deepened over the years.’
