The Secret Language of the Body

with Velan

  • January 9, 2019 - January 11, 2019
The body does not lie
Look at the postural architecture of human 
and you will begin to see
See under the surface of reality 
See the story of human
Pressed like a leaf 
Into the fabric of bones and tissue
Awaken dear beloved, to the sweet mysteries of movement
The unraveling of amour
The contours of conflict
The visceral textures of vitality
The shapeshifting subtitles of spirit 
 
This workshop is a laboratory into the mysteries of embodiment, the arts of ancient movement masters, the subtle language of energy and the instinctive somatic body intelligence. 
Through the lineage of the Shaolin Internal Arts woven with movement koans and dance, these foundations create a container that reveals one’s capacity to embody, center, ground and thrive within the chaos of the unknown.
 
Breaking the box of dogmatic movement disciplines, the alchemy of diverse movement practice gives a width of understanding, creates a rich and tangible reflection of the human experience, reveals the silent moments and expands the capacity to contain and digest life.  
 
Dive into the alchemy of 3 bodies of work 
Energetic Cultivation – Calligraphy Shaolin Internal Arts – cultivate vitality and learn the subtle art of redirecting energy and conflict.
Movement Koans/riddles – Explore the language of the body and the subtleties beneath the surface of reality. 
Dance and Movement Rituals  – Seek out the hidden stories that have shaped one’s being, the formulation of thought and feeling into the visible face of the dance.  
 
We’ve entered a time where there is no longer a map… now standing at the precipice of one’s own path unfolding.
The body shapes itself around traumas, emotions, habits, and cultural conditioning. To consciously embody, one’s physiology, shape, breath, state of being, and life is reorganized.
 
This is not only for dancers, yogi’s, fitness freaks or movement practitioners….It is for anyone with a body, to bring the depth of ritual, dance, movement and inquiry to every moment…from subtle to strong, from dance to movement riddles, evolving from the map and intuitive guide….THE BODY.
