Workshop Retreat: Ritual, Renewal & Laughter
Thu, 12 Oct 2017, 17:00 – Sun, 15 Oct 2017, 16:30 CEST
A 3-day workshop of transformation, community and laughter.
Interweaving a tradition sweat lodge, discovering your clown and exploring the body patterning through the neutral mask, it's a chance to get away, connect with fellow souls & relax at the heart of nature in the Spanish Pyrenees.
We combine the renewal of a sweat lodge with a workshop in embodiment, play and patterning through red nose clown and the neutral mask.These 3 experiences are somatic processes of transformation.
A traditional sweating lodge allows a deep process of surrender and renewal, bringing people together. Running over 5 hours in the afternoon & evening, this ritual begins with a fire, preparing the space, setting intentions and heating the basalt rocks. When the fire has burnt out, the heated rocks are brought into the sweating lodge in 4 stages, with the heat soaking in to the core of your body.
Red nose clown is a powerful and poetic discovery of self. Tap in to what makes you uniquely funny & brilliant, & the process of discovering your own clown. Whether you feel like a natural born comedian or are shy of the stage, we are all funny in our own way.
The Neutral Mask is a phenomenal tool for uncovering the stories that our bodies hold, and a gentle process in unravelling new potentials of movement and awareness.
These disciplines originating from theatre and the work of Jacques Lecoq and Giovanni Fusetti, incorporate aspects of Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen, Ida Rolf & Carl Jung.
We are holding a workshop for a small group of 12 commited people who are familiar with circles of communication, recognise the importance and growth from inner development, and who are open-minded to shamanism and the importance of co-existence with the natural world.
The workshop will start at 5pm Thursday 12th October, and people are welcome to arrive from 2pm onwards. See logistics for how to get here. The price includes board and lodging from Thursday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Sleeping arrangements are in the farmhouse, tipi and tent, with comfortable bedding and mattrices provided. The meals are an outstanding and wholesome experience of organic Catalunian cooking.
The workshop will be in English with translation to Catalunian & Spanish.
