Immersion into the fluid mystery
Čas a místo
As planetary beings thriving for our own evolution, we have set up, as a culture, rituals and initiations to transcend the limitation of our current existence. We have done this probably since the ice age in caves and natural temples, where the sacred and the values of life were carved on the walls and celebrated. We have created spaces and chambers for regeneration, and transcendental experiences that would bridge our earthly experiences with the vastest of the cosmos. Before the mind separated our full awareness of the meaning of living on earth as a human being, the knowing that we are part of all existences was there.
In our current development, we are profoundly lacking these types of spaces. The external reality has taken over our awareness into a materialistic world of values. Some of us long for a deeper connection to life and a fulfilled existence.
Continuum is an entrance to the vast web of existence, using sounds, breaths, movement sequences, intentions or images to access the richness of conscious intelligences. These three days will be an immersion into the fluid mystery moving inside our cells and bodily tissues. We are about re-informing our whole cellular crystalline structure with the living resonance that pulsate throughout the universe.
Continuum is a movement practice founded by somatic pioneer Emilie Conrad (1934-2014), a proposition to explore the powerful connection between breath, sound and movement and their effects on our body and mind. Continuum is an inquiry of what it means to be a human being in its full expression and in connection with our living environment. It is a path into the unknown aiming to the discovery of self and the mystery of life.
These three days include a 24h round of practice. Continuum experience is required due to the depth and intense sensory immersion.
