Beyond effort, beyond body and mind – we find freedom of movement and expression. We’ll go on a journey through movement & physical practice to discover that on the other side of effort there is everything we can imagine.
Where: Brussels, Belguim
When: 23rd – 24th June | 11:00 – 16:00
In this two day workshop, we will push our physical and mental borders, in such a way that allows us freedom and creativity. We will go to the limit of body and mind and cross it – just to get a taste of what’s beyond. We’ll practice being out of our comfort zone and learn to enjoy it. Extreme physical & mental exhaustion in an effortless way in combination with slow gentle meditative practice.
The work is inspired by Somatic & Shamanic practices (such as ILM method, Feldenkrais & various breathing exercises), that come together to help us have the experience of extreme physical conditions – in a safe and grounded way, allowing us to open up and discover new ground & movement within the body-mind.
