It is noticeable at this particular time in Western living that many people are experiencing stress or a sense of fragmentation as attempts are made to fulfil the many roles and expectations of daily living. Familiar patterns of our body-mind can keep us stuck or left with a feeling of overwhelm. Is there a way in which we can re-order and re-imagine the many parts of ourselves?
What can our images and movement tell us about our approach and response to these forces? Are they imposed upon us or initiated by us? Can acknowledging fragmentation stimulate a new flowing connectivity and relationship to the whole? Could there be small changes or shifts in our awareness that can support us to feel spacious when cramped, creative when blocked or calm under pressure?
Drawing inspiration from some Cubist ideas, Picasso and Braque in particular, we will explore through conversation, drawing and movement this intrinsic and inevitable life dynamic.
Through simple movements, we will engage our body’s kinesthetic and inherent wisdom and through art we will make our mark literally and metaphorically in a weekend of creative exploration and practice.

“I thought the workshop was really excellent, combining as it did, movement, teaching, discussion and drawing. In times of struggle it was good to experience “being in the flow!” I would recommend this opportunity to anyone who is committed to flow with life rather than struggle with it!!” - Lawrence Bloom, Be Earth Foundation
Your excellent (but too short) workshop left me begging for more!!! I will certainly sign up for a longer session. -DS
