What Does It Mean To Move to Love?
The ADTC community shares one simple, unifying mission: to empower girls to move to love.
The "love" we're moving towards originates in the part of our mind that is connected to Spirit. It is our source of peace, joy, happiness, and a whole bunch of other "positive" emotions.
Luckily, love isn't something external & elusive that we can "get" from the outside world. Love is internal and always available, we just have to choose it. It is a practice.
ADTC is a tight-knit, all-girl community where we have the "move" part DOWN! We dance, which is also a practice of "love", but how else can we practice love as individuals and a community each and every day at dance camp? Zero Negativity.
The Zero Negativity Challenge
In order to move to love as a collective camp community, we're launching the "Zero Negativity Challenge" this summer as a simple, unifying practice for both campers and staff.
Don't worry! Zero negativity doesn't mean you can't feel angry, sad, etc. Zero negativity is more of an "intention" we're moving towards. It's a challenge to become more conscious of our feelings so we're more authentic and have more freedom/choice in creating our own reality, and in how we influence our community at camp.
Here's How to Practice Zero Negativity:
- No put-downs (to yourself or anyone else).
- No negative body language (rolling eyes, etc).
- Count the number of negative comments you make each day.
- If you're caught in negative thinking, repeat to yourself, "Pollution, pollution" (negative thoughts pollute your inner light ). Then take a moment to look at something beautiful.
