Embodied Consciousness

Suzanne Selection 2 - 38vlite

 

“We rarely hear the inward music, but we’re all dancing to it nevertheless” – Rumi

What’s your relationship to your body? Are you aware of how you are sitting right now reading this? How is your body affecting your mood and your presence in the world?

These are just some of the questions we will explore in the 1-day workshop Embodied Consciousness. Through guided movement, voice and alignment exercises we will explore and strengthen conscious connection with our bodies.

The focus is on a holistic approach where we learn to listen more closely to our bodies and use them as tools for manifesting more energy, confidence and presence, connection with others, and more expansive self expression.

Remco Vrielink from Creative Consciousness Germany will give an introduction to consciousness, after which teachers Anna Bosch and Susanne Bentley will facilitate the day’s process.

Please come prepared with comfortable clothing to move in, as well as paper & pen.  There will be a 1 hour break for lunch.

Price: early bird €50 (until & including 31 October), €60 afterwards.

Registration: anna(at)creativeconsciousness(dot)sg

Anna Bosch (DE)

In her early years Anna Bosch studied music at Staatliche Hoschschule für Musik Stuttgart with flute as a major subject. During her years as a professional wind instrument player she became fascinated with the use of breath as a tool for expression as well as a vital source of life energy. In her opinion the way we breathe determines the level of vibrancy. Breathing related to talking, singing and moving is the place where we discover most about ourselves. Since moving with music has always been her passion, Anna completed a dance education in several styles. This enhanced her body and spacial awareness as well as the joy of being. During the workshop Anna is looking forward to incorporating her personal experience and passion as a tool for other being’s discovery of their body and breath.
