Awaking Your Sensing Body:
A Continuum Workshop
with Gael Rosewood
September 29 – October 1, 2017 in Durham, NC
The body is a scribe on this life’s journey from spirit through the material world, recording our multidimensional awareness and reactions. When these physical imprints remain unconscious they act as impediments, imbalances or conflicts. As we become present to the fullness of our experience, our mind, body, emotions, and imagination move in concert with the artful discovery of our true and ever changing self. Our electronic age has subverted a basic engagement with the elemental energies of life. This pervasive cultural experience demands a speed of response that limits us to patterned, repetitive, and linear movements. For all of our material comforts, the ‘flight/fight’ aspect of our nervous system is exacting a high price in ambient stress, anxiety, and the loss of sensuality in everyday being.
Continuum as a movement practice provides the tools to go beyond the limitations of the cultural view of body and self, opening our perception to a lived experience that is rooted in our immediate sensate world. This inquiry explores a premise that the fluid within our bodies, planet, and universe functions as a resonant stream of bio-intelligence. As we cultivate our experience of belonging to the innate fluidity of life, we begin to reclaim our primal birthright to embody pleasure and wholeness. Fluid movement is a nourishment for passion as well as health and harmony.
