Terms of Engagement
>> Come as you are. Honor yourself by showing up FOR YOURSELF.
>> You have the option to not face the camera for the main Shakeout.
However, your camera needs to be turned on for the entirety of the session.
>> You can't do this while driving or eating.
>>There will be no recording of this event.
>> Clear your space for movement and expression. In particular, clear the floor of any potential obstruction that you could topple over or trip on.
>> Sometimes when we get raw with ourselves, unexpected sounds come out of us. They are welcome in this container.
Participants will still be muted during the main Shakeout, to make clear the prompts and cues from the facilitator.
In order to not stir up your neighbors to call 911, it’s recommended that you have a scarf/ towel/ pillow on hand. This is for covering the mouth in case the volume gets louder than loud. Go without it at your own risk.
>> Most kids are natural at this. They only shut themselves down when they get disapproving looks or words from authority figures who are not ok with their natural expression. Please make this a safe and fun exploration for the child inside you. Be open to making a mess. It’s only 20 minutes of your week. You can gather your composure, get back up again after the shakeout. Don’t make it about right or wrong, good or bad. Just have fun and let yourself go.
Give yourself the license. Shake, rattle, and roll.
>> Make sure you drink plenty of water afterwards.
>> Don’t underestimate the intensity of this purge, or the energy and life force you could get back just from making one little sound or shake.
Let Yourself Have IT.
