Manipulation up to the sky

Zita Pavlištová and Jakub Zeman

5th - 6th July 2017

Movement improvisation workshop, bodily play through which we try to find a perfect physical connection. It’s surprising how pleasant it can be to manipulate each other. We will discover how powerful it is and what are we missing while rejecting it. We will experience how well does it lead us, finding ourselves both on the ground and in the air. This event is a little return for anybody interested in movement, contact improvisation, dance or martial arts who wants to discover more about how to communicate in physical contact, explore new ways and enjoy the summertime together.

Sexuality, Love and Relationship

Komala (Brazil) and Khushru (Austria)

21st – 23rd of July 2017

The sexual energy and the longing for love are the fuel that moves us into relationships. At the same time, lack of understanding and communication around sex, love and relationships prevents us from reaching real intimacy. Therefore this workshop is to understand and experience the divine dance of the masculine and feminine polarities: How sexual energy drives us to come together to create intimate relationships, the differences in which it manifests in men and women, and the possibility and challenges of learning about love and oneself that come with it.

Awakened Feminine

Komala (Brazil)

16th - 18th June 2017

A eight-month process of profound transformation of female sexuality and opening up to love and trust. In this training we invoke the power of the feminine energy through the Tantric Goddesses, channeling the love and wisdom of the “Big Mother” to guide us through the rich, powerful and challenging universe of our sexual energy. We connect with our sexual energy as the natural and instinctual force that connects and creates, and from there we open our hearts for all the pain, the joy and the longing that we carry in our body and mind. Opening for healing and for deeper intimacy with ourselves, with life and with the principle of creation.

About Flying - Contact Improvisation

Adrian Russi (Switzerland)

30th August - 3rd September 2017

Myths, images and of course lots of dance practice: a workshop in Contact Improvisation with Adrian Russi. What are the images and phantasies that I carry in my mind about flying? What is needed as preparation for the flight and what will happen afterwards? How is all this working in a bird’s body? And how do I experience the moments of flight in my own dance? In this workshop we will explore how to use gravity, momentum and stable bodies in motion in order to reach lightness in flight. We will work with timing, body-communication and weight, your own as well as your partner’s – and we will experience that weight is first of all neutral. If it feels heavy or light depends on our inner attitude and on body intelligence – things that we can train and influence quite directly!

Die Before You Die

Komala (Brazil)

6th - 8th of October 2017

Death is an organic, integral part of life. Because of fear, we create a division between life and death. We cling to the past, our beliefs and memories, and to the future, the desires and dreams, and we experience life only mentally, losing the true reality of what we are. To die and to be born is a Sufi paradox, the understanding that death and life happens each moment. The death of what we believe we are, in its different manifestations is necessary for recognizing our true nature, so that we can be totally alive.

The Spiritual Aspect of Healing Process

Mike Boxhall (Great Britain)

11th - 14nd of January 2018

A posgraduate course primarily intended for professional therapists (craniosacral therapists, ostheopaths, physiotherapists, psychotherapists) as a praxis that opens a gate to different dimensions of treatment. The teaching continues where the concept of therapy and the knowledge of reached its limits. We will employ the way of work on a table inherent to craniosacral biodynamic therapy enriched with other levels of perception and the feedback. The intention of this course is to research on the spiritual aspects of therapy that are natural part of our embodied being. More than a lesson, it is thus a form of a collective praxis. A praxis, that leads to expanded consciousness and restores the connection with one’s essential qualities.
