Do you remember the last time you were standing on the beach while the tide was coming in? Could you feel how those long waves that move across the oceans also move through you? Could you feel the abundance of power and clarity?
Since I started my Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Training, I am experiencing that those powerful tides are as much part of my body and being and that there isn’t any difference. We have the ocean inside of us.
We are co-creating and coexisting with a complex network of moving masses. It is possible to feel what is moving inside us, supported by what is changing around us. We will be exploring inner space in relation to outside space. The more direct experience we have with our sensational oceanic bodies, the more we can be available in our dance. From an oriented body we can learn how to orient in space. Holding the whole, not just the parts. We will be playing with space, time, weight and relationship.
We’ll explore different layers of our bodies. Surely we’ll take lots of time for experiential and inspirational anatomy for moving. I will introduce some ideas on how to “hook” on people, using arms and legs to find easy ways to catch a ride. I would like to play with our awareness and its magical non-consistency, we’ll practice patience outside of time and especially resting. There will be group scores, duets and witnessing.
(This workshop is limited to max. 16 people. I trust that we have the tools to take care of ourselves and hold a safe and loving container for us all. Please assure your own safety precaution regarding covid as we will be sharing intimate space together. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have any.)
