The Embodied Writing Creative Workshop

 

 

Offers you a possibility to connect with your intuitive listening and awaken to your senses. Focus on your inner world and inner truth through playful and gentle exercises that aim to develop your relationship with yourself and strengthen your inner authority. This workshop provides tools to create a personal connection with Self, a safe space within and without where magic can happen, a space where you may softly open and discover new possibilities for healing.

With a mix of movement and writing we will let the body speak and learn to listen to the wisdom of our bodies. Allow your words and ideas to move through you, bringing messages from within out to be heard.

 

Move with your breath, write with your soul.

This is a bi-monthly workshop held online.

Duration: 2 hours

Contribution Based on Income:

28 Euro (Standard), 22 Euro (Reduced), 34 Euro (Supporter)

Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio

 

In the energy of this powerful moon, we come together to listen with our bodies and our writing.

15. 5. 22 (Sunday May 15, 2022)

17:00-19:00 CET via Zoom

 

Eclipses are messengers of change, helping our personal and collective evolution. During a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth is projected upon the face of the Moon bringing our shadows to the surface. Lunar eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they support us in giving love to all parts of ourselves (both individual and collective).

This lunar eclipse in Scorpio will be a powerful time for cleansing our emotional waters and setting intentions for renewal and rejuvenation in the coming months. Some of the spiritual aspects of the moon represent our deep inner tides, so when the shadow of the Sun passes over the full Moon, there is an opportunity to reveal and transform through unconditional love. Even more during this particular event considering the energy of Scorpio, a water sign, symbolizing the deep waters of transformation and often associated with the cycles of death and rebirth. Scorpio is revealing life from beneath the shadows, carrying a sensual and creative energy to feel our fullness.

Tuning into these energies, we will explore together the deep waters, using safe and creative tools to honor our inner landscape and find spaces of forgiveness and gratitude. Especially during a full moon, practices of forgiveness and gratitude help us tap into our wholeness, the unified space of interconnectedness within that needs protecting and remembering.

Please join us for the 3rd Side-by-Side International InterPlay Gathering!

 

19 - 22 May, 2022

Thursday - Sunday, Online

Inspired by Thich Nhat Hahn’s life and teaching, this year we’ll explore the realms of "Interbeing" which he says is “our deep interconnection with everything else.”

We will gather online in whole group sessions and a wide variety of workshops. We will have lots of opportunities to connect with each other. The schedule is designed to accommodate time zones in the Eastern Hemisphere from Australia to Europe. The event will take place over four days, with 3 1/2 hours of play each day.

 

As we play with the theme of “Interbeing” we will weave our diverse intentions with InterPlay’s potent tools—voice, movement, storytelling, stillness, and connection. And in this vast space of possibilities, we grow in allowing the sanctity of the living world in its wholeness to merge with us in all our human intricacies. Especially in today’s uncertainties and challenges, our open curiosity and goodwill are our lanterns in the dark. Each of us has a unique bit to play! Join us and bring along your cooperative and collaborative spirit.

 

Together we can shake up whatever is getting in the way and harness the regenerative qualities of our true nature as we branch out and carry forward.

Side by side, equipped with the inherent wisdom of our bodies, we explore new grounds as we interlace our threads of narratives, meanings, and creative expressions to illuminate our world of Interbeing. Through InterPlay, we can remember and reclaim our rootedness in each other and get in the groove of our soulful solidarity!

Our bodies are living archives that hold ancestral trauma and resilience. What are the shadows present in our bodies waiting to be released and transformed like compost with which we can fertilize the world's seeds of justice, compassion, joy and creative play?

The Just Transitions workshop series locating the moving body as a nexus for climate justice research. If we want to change our societies, we must first learn what change and transformation look like and feel like in our own bodies. Dance is a practice comprised of continuous transitions – infinite spaces to further develop liberation as a practice by saying NO to dualism and saying YES to complexity, intersections, and hybridity. With a body-centered approach, the diversity of our humxn experiences informs strategies for transitioning away from growth-focused consumerist movement patterns that rely on fossil fuels and towards being in interconnected, reciprocal, regenerative relationship!

Experience being the change you wish to see in the world!

Join a workshop almost every week!

Online! Donation-based! Supports a good cause!

 

Join us amidst the possibilities, tensions, organizing-efforts and hanging-in-there vibes. No next-steps will benefit from being all up in our heads and out of touch with our bodies! Luckily, we've been playing on zoom for months now and have learned how to make connective, real, relieving space online. NO EXPERIENCE needed, truly. We have a long road of love, solidarity and culture-building ahead. This session is grounded in InterPlay, an improv modality that uses a playful approach to movement, storytelling, listening and song to tap into body wisdom.

Held by Playful Resilience - a collective of facilitators holding space for body wisdom since the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020.
