Surround yourself with the vibrant colors and crisp scents of autumn at Earthdance! Allow the shift of weather and time to express itself in movement as you come together with community. Come harvest the fruits of the passing year; rejoice in old friends, abundance and new growth at our final Seasonal Jam of the year!
We are proud to announce the Earthdance Diversity Scholarship for this Jam!
In this workshop we create a safe container to explore the practice of authentic movement with a mover, an active and a sitting witness. Working in trios we will discover the powerful learnings that come from each of the three roles. This practice can be immeasurably helpful in deepening the practice of contact improvisation by supporting our capacity to source from within and support our skillfulness in deeply listening to ourselves while connecting with another.
*as a mover with eyes closed we deepen our ability to follow our own authentic impulses inspired by sensation, imagery, emotion or story. We have the opportunity to experience staying true to our own inner impulses and journey while being relational with an active witness who is supporting us.
*as a sitting witness we learn to cultivate our own ability to non-judgmentally witness other while simultaneously witnessing our own inner process
*as an active witness we learn to stay true to our own impulses while actively supporting the mover's process with or without touch
No experience in authentic movement or contact improvisation are necessary for this workshop. However, experience and a willingness for deep embodied listening and comfort with touch are helpful.
