Sensorial Meditation can shed a new light upon our inner perceptions, intimately linked to the thoughts of our body. It makes us fully present to ourselves, listening and feeling the movement of our thoughts.

First Weekend
Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 April

A journey from Meditation to Movement and back to Meditation.
We will slowly find the way to express the inner experience in and out of movement. exploring ways to allow our dance to resonate in our Meditation.
We will take some time to verbalize on the dancing dimension within Meditation and the Meditative dance, group and individual improvisations will follow.
This path will lead us to discover Oriental dance techniques and movement from a different point of view, more in touch with the Sensorial. We will also introduce the idea and methods of Fasciatherapy.
Sensorial Movement is meditative and playful, it requires attention to our inner perceptions, while reconditioning our gestural habits; it builds presence by inhabiting a slow rhythm of motion. Based on structured protocols, it gradually takes us through different rhythms, leading to improvised dance. It often expresses the intimacy of our emotions and our sensibility. The gesture is harmonious and physiological. It is a dance that recreates us.

Second Weekend
Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 May

Meditation/Dance/Creative Writing

In this second weekend we will be getting in touch with Sensorial Meditation, finding ways to put the thoughts of our bodies and our ideas in motion and allowing this to lead us into Creative writing. Moving back to meditation we will investigate how the expression of our writings affect our meditation.
What do our writings bring to our improvisations, movement and dance ?
We will will ease our way again towards Oriental Dance with the Hips and Rhythm Techniques and the notions of Fasciatherapy.
