Open Practice Sessions @ Wiesenburg

Since some time I m interested in a research on spaces of contemplation within a practice around energetic principles, in which time and attention is given to freeing the inner self from jumping thoughts, psychology or personal matters. From sensing freedom within oneself and one’s movement we can more easily become an organization, an organism, sculpting energies and movements without any further purpose than the work itself.
The upcoming Open Practice Sessions focus on body work based on principles coming from Zen related practices like Zen-Aikido, Zen-Meditation and Shiatsu. The work concentrates on continuation of movement, breath and Ki (energy), the unity of body and spirit, the understanding of weight shift and axis rotation, on cellular consciousness, on relating body parts and organs to one another and to one’s center of gravitation, both in our individual work, in partner work and in the work within a group. We will also do some energy work with the sword that we learn to hold and move with.
Different to earlier Open Practice Session I have done, I would like to dedicate the full 3 hours to the training and movement research as such, without any further goal of producing choreographic materials. If research ideas for further pieces arise, it is by the observation of what happens and by allowing for the essences of our being to unfold.
