In this workshop we will offer practices for living and dying together on a damaged earth. We can’t rely on models that perpetuate this crisis. We need to practice embodied knowing to repair our relational fields. We must hone our skills. to improvise, to play, to experiment, to be receptive, to be in the unknown and trust we have the resources in our bodies to negotiate, survive, and thrive. Ecosomatics is a dynamic approach to learning and living and asks how embodiment plays a role in building knowledge which can support a transformation for all of us to move from concern, to care, to action when it comes to the ecological crisis. Together we will practice living, breathing, sensing, perceiving, digesting, dying, and decomposing to help us perceive more of the whole scale of the sensitivities and intelligences within us, the human and non-human, the transforming spaces, the before and after with a goal of rebuilding our relational web.
This class is for anyone and everybody interested in movement, the body and consciousness irregardless of experience. It does not require any special skills, and we welcome all bodies regardless of ability.
