"Somatic Expression is best understood through personal experience. In a session, you explore a range of possibilities with the five somatic technologies and bring habitual patterns of moving, feeling and thinking to the surface where they can be unraveled and transformed."

Orienting Within to Move Without: Somatic Contemplations and Emergent Expression

Dortmund, Germany

May 24-26, 2024

Begins at 18:00 on May 24 and ends at 15:00 on May 26

Somatic Contemplations are body-based practices for orienting within and attuning to our own nature through the five technologies of somatic experience (breath, vocalization, contact, movement, and stillness). Alternating movement and stillness, sound and silence, and expression and impression, we slow down time and venture inside to regenerate our proprioception (our body’s self-perception) and awaken essential vitality.

This practice of somatic self-orientation is the foundation for the magic of movement explorations, creative freedom, and aesthetic expression. Somatic journeys through the inner landscape prepare the ground for emergent expression - following moment-to-moment impulses effortlessly while orienting outwards and meeting the world. There is no pressure to “perform” movement; instead, there is an invitation to allow, savor and enjoy your body in motion and at rest – to become an element of nature and a being of grace.

Come join us for an adventurous weekend of learning, playing, creating and connecting as we meet our selves and one another through the wisdom of our body’s magical nature.
