Gurdjieff Dance, Movements & Inner Exercises , 4.-6. November 2022
Workshop language: English
As a human being I can be aware of myself being aware of myself. Sustaining this, I can be aware of others and what we are doing together.
I can divide my attention in three directions simultaneously: inward, outward, and on the space around. With practice, I can think, sense, and feel while “seeing” in all three directions. Such an amazing ability! But does this ability have a purpose or usefulness beyond itself?
When I meet someone, I ask, „who is she?“ then „what does she do?“ When I find something, I ask, „what is this?“ then „what does it do?“
Join movement meditation specialist and street-cognitive therapist James Tomarelli and Friends in a body-centered bare-attention break-on-through workshop to answer the perennial questions: „Where am I?“ „What am I?“ “How am I?” „Who am I?“
Workshops have three fields of work
1) Letting go and opening up: By intentionally invoking gravity, breath and the organic sensation of life inside a field of active attention, we will re-member and re- experience preverbal states of relaxation, posture, and breath while integrating and deepening the three body-mind actions of seeing, feeling, and sensing.
2) I sense therefore I am: Getting beyond the Cartesian paradigm, we will use active attention and Movement Meditation to lock-in the body-mind actions of seeing, feeling, and sensing — creating a dynamic field of threefold consciousness.
3) Empirical mysticism and the science of collective being: In a mutually created field of collective presence and spiritual collaboration, we will experience the embodiment- transcendence paradox* using Gurdjieff Dance and Ritual Movement to evoke a mystic field of nonduality without dissolving our unique personal sense of embodied presence.
Within in these fields, the dance arises.
