“We have seen the development of new ecological conceptions of the human body and health strategies that emphasize the need to restore and “re-wild” our bodies that have become separated from nature.” — Chelsea Leiper
‘Rewilding Through Play’ Invites you to share a conversation with your body and other bodies through verbal, non verbal, somatic and physical embodiment practices to explore our connection and disconnection with our earth home and our home body.
We will explore some of the following but not limited to; Active listening & sharing, Wild Play, Clowning, Lecoq: The Moving Body, movement meditation, intuitive stretching, ecstatic dance, touch, and contact improvisation.
The workshop does not aim to impose any particular method or teaching but for you to discover, investigate & nourish your own embodiment practice that suits you rather than a codified set of skills.
You will leave feeling energised, connected & grounded. You will revisit a visceral reconnection with the needs of your body, a brand new capacity to innately listen and kindly love the self.
“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival” — Rumi
