The heart is the first organ to develop in the human body. It’s action defines the beginning and end of life as a physical entity. We refer to the heart when emotions and feelings of love and pain appear and we find the daily reference to this mysterious organ in our language and expressions.
But what would be the connection between the physical organ, the sensation and the symbol?
Can we actually follow our heart? Dance our hearts out?
In this two days workshop we will learn and explore the surprising anatomical structure, function and natural qualities of the human heart.
Through guided movement improvisation exercises, somatic practices, guided meditation, partner work, discussions and not to forget – lots of dancing, we will try to notice the minor and great changes that might occur in our body and mind when we give our attention to our one and only heart.
