The Art of Falling
Adrian Russi (Switzerland)
24th – 28th of September 2016
Contact Improvisation is a constant interplay with gravity and every rising movement results eventually in the coming back down towards the floor – “The art of falling” will focus on this physical fact that seems to be simple but not always easy to practice. To integrate falling as a natural and safe part into the dance leads you towards effortless and resourcing movement qualities, where you can experience gravity rather as an energy supply than something to overcome. The floor and the space will turn into real partners – communication partners to get supported and nourished from and that enable you to dance in a 3-dimensional and juicy way.More information...
The Original Matrix and the Embodiment of Form
Roger Gilchrist (USA)
27th - 30th of October 2016
This postgraduate course of biodynamic craniosacral therapy we organize in collaboration with the Wellness Institute (New York) and after its graduation you receive a certificate. This seminar is 5th part of a three-year professional training in NeuroEnergetic therapy. This seminar examines the organizing forces in the biofield from the level of consciousness, to energy dynamics, to physical forms and conditions. We will also explore the relationships among emotions, energy, and healing. When we specifically understand the energy dynamics of embodiment, the relationships of consciousness, emotions, and physical experience becomes very practical. We will start to assemble all the components of our study of NeuroEnergetic Therapy into a broad-based holistic clinical practice, leading to even more effective results with our clients.More information...

Mike Boxhall (Great Britain)
19th - 22nd of January 2017
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.More information...
