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 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.
