"Moving Deeper into the Body Is Moving Deeper into Silence "
Dancing with a multitude of somatic approaches, we mobilise our curiosity and discover experiential anatomy.
To support this we will establish the art of witnessing, resourcing and self-regulation skills that make being in the body and in our own skin comfortable and pleasurable. Working with a map of the cells, membrane and fluids, organs, bones, and muscle tissue as well as the ancient knowing of a fluid endocrine and nervous system, we come to acknowledge how each body has its own unique language and orchestration.
As we listen, move, touch, trust, express and sense the body consciously every cell is enlivened, communities of cells make up different body systems that support each other in order to maintain a smooth running organism called the body. When we overuse one system, such as the muscles and nervous system as we tend to in the fast paced life styles. These systems become exhausted or even stressed. We will be discovering how we can access and recover use of other body systems to resource and support our movement in life. Bones, for e.g., are of great support for movement and their psychosomatic qualities of structure and connectedness are useful and essential for underlying stability.
Its a down-under approach, we allow the body to inform us through its language of sensation, rather than the head attempting to track the body. We will use anatomical pictures and models to support our orientation of entering the body consciously, move from our anatomy and be informed through a direct perception.
Sensing, expressing, moving and touching consciously supports learning to perceive, and recover the innate resources of our embodied anatomy.
Guided by play and humour, discover the simple practice of staying connected to the body. Attending to sensation in the body anchors us in this moment and supports trust in awareness of the unique language, resources, qualities and expressions in our body systems, fluids and cells.
Renew grounding and find immediate self care through creatively exploring; inhabiting and enjoying being at home in the body.
