Program

Delving into Fullness
Body-Mind Centering® into Dance

Into the fullness of our organs we will delve! Each organ has its own story, characteristics and function. In their beauty and complexity they receive, nourish, eliminate, -keep us alive- and support our movements in their adaptability and three-dimensionality. It's a collaborative dance inside of us. 

Through anatomy, somatizations, touch, sound and movement alone and with a partner we will tune into organs, their rhythms, pulsation, vibration, flow, relief and aliveness. 

We will explore their support for elasticity, lightness, resilience and comfort. And we will take some “side trips” to fluids, connective tissues, bones, embryology and developmental movement patterns. Following expression on the smallest cellular level to large movement through space.

My wish is to spark the joy of movement and interest in exploring your body. You will be provided with profound knowledge, offerings of in-depth experience and awareness of the inter- connected ness of inner & outer processes. 

Authentic Movmement, Dance and Contact Improvisation will serve as integration practices and will be woven into the workshop. One afternoon is free and you will have time to go to the beach (20min drive), rest at the swimming pool or go for an excursion into the near villages.

Body-Mind Centering® is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and conciousness. It is an ongoing, experiental journey. Through anatomical information, movement, sensation and touch it offers pathways to discover the richness of the relationships within the body and mind. 

Identifying, articulating, differentiating, and integrating various tissues within the body, discovering the qualities they contribute to one's movement, how they have evolved in one's developmental process, and the role they play in the expression of mind. With finest and deep awareness, and understanding of relationships in the body we evoke presence, three dimensional full-body being for joy and ease in movement! More info: www.bodymindcentering.com

Place

We, Monica & Samuel, invite you to an original country side house nestled in typical Portuguese farmland at the Algarve coast close by Faro. 

We have been building in new ways, with respect for the tradition, our grandfather’s farm into an organic ecological home. This six days long workshop gives us time to be together connecting with nature and being part of the country side life. Enjoy with us our home overlooking the sea, the blossoming springtime and the fresh green of the fields with old olive-, algarove- and almond trees.
