A felt-sense practice in acknowledging land as our primary cultural context, to meet the complexity of presences within this land and the multiple lands within each body.
Workshop at Body IQ Somatics Festival: Bodies of Cultures, Communities, and Places. 21 November, 2021.
The session begins with a meditation to invoke one’s relationship to land and the personal archive of places that have informed them to hone a specific question. With this, participants will be facilitated into a journey, laying on the ground with eyes closed and mouths moving. Eventually, a kind of dream-like state invites a group murmuration in which participants speak continually and simultaneously describing image, sensation, emotion, allowing language to emerge. Supported by open questions infused into the journey, participants are encouraged to sense and speak from their own perceptive experience. Journeys may meet, crossover, and diverge from one another.
Workshop at Martin Gropius Bau within the ‘Down to Earth‘ exhibition. 26 August, 2020.
Invited by Claire Vivianne Sobottke, offered in the set environment of ‘Velvet‘
Laying on the grounds of “Velvet”, participants will take part of a journey with their eyes closed and their mouths moving. Through an initial guided meditation, a group murmuration is invited in which participants speak continually and simultaneously about their experiences. Questions will be infused throughout and journeys may meet, crossover, and diverge from one another. A felt-sense practice in acknowledging our shared presence on this land and the multiple lands carried within each body.
No particular background is needed other than the willingness to listen and engage in the speaking practice.
