Join our list to hear about the next one
SEEING WITH THE BODY is to attune to the sense-based intelligence that surrounds us, to know deeper than our thoughts, to attune to the feminine fabric of life, all through the sensuous body vessel that homes our being and, by nature, thrives in connectedness with the living web of life.
In the ancient Latin language, true intelligence was described by the verb sentire, which meant to feel, to perceive, and to know, all at once. And this is the language we rediscover and strengthen in Seeing With the Body: To know with our whole being, to live in our "deep body", the meeting place of mind, senses, emotions, eros, and wild psyche; to sense and know beyond the visible and the understandable.
This open evening is a great chance to experience our our unique movement-inspired model for accessing the sublime and rarely tapped intelligence of your deep body® and your embodied soulfulness, imagination, and intuition.
Through uniquely designed embodied investigations, intuitive and creative movement and dance, sensual anatomy practices, myth and storytelling, full-body enactments and witness work, we will engage with the different layers of the deep body––physical, sensual, emotional, expressive, perceptive, and archetypal/collective, and explore layers of inner knowing in fact and mystery.
What to expect...
+ Explore your soul vision through the vast intelligence of your deep body®.
+ Be guided through unique intuitive movement practices into your physical, emotional, sensual, expressive, and perceptive "body skins" and reconnect to what has most soul and meaning in your personal myth and life vision at this time.
+ Learn practices for cultivating the body as the instrument for perception and fluidity
+ Recover the depth of your senses and the intelligence available through the felt self
+ Uncover body armoring
+ Rekindle the erotic intelligence of your body as path to your greater soul story
+ Explore the deep conversation between your body and Earth
+ Work with the symbols, images, and guidance of your deeper psyche
+ Meet inspiring women and non-binary people from our community
