The most direct way to enhance self-awareness is by developing your ability to listen to yourself as an embodied being. How? By honoring a deep intelligence that focuses on sensation instead of mentation.
In this workshop, Rebecca will guide us in a Continuum Dive. We will sound, breathe, and organically move to enliven the fluid system, allowing the bio-intelligence to be responsive to our context. When somatic constraints are softened, we experience a greater flow of energy, increase tissue adaptability, and generate multi-dimensional movement dynamics.
We discover new and ancient ways of what it means to be alive. The practice helps us to be responsive and adaptable in movement and thought, freeing us from habit and deeply seeded messages of duality.
Since its inception, Continuum has been exploring the profundity of the fluid system as one resonant stream of intelligence… within our bodies, planet, and galaxy. Fluid molecules choreograph tissue structure and affect communication and the energetic nourishment that is available to us. All of Continuum’s teachings are designed to quicken and enrich the fluid system, invoking its genius to transform structure and foster the art of self-renewal.
You’ll need a mat to move on and any other supports your body may want for sitting.
