Life Cycles & Initiation

- Life Cycles & Initiation

Module 8 Continuum Training

This module is dedicated to the themes of life cycles, death and initiation. Over the first four days, a Continuum Movement sequence is introduced, explained and practised. Each element has a different function and effect on the overall system, but all train permeability, presence and the ability to surrender. From the bones to the skin, from breathing to metabolism, and from head to toe, the body is brought into vibration through movements and sounds and thus becomes more receptive to subtle impulses and self-regulatory processes on a physical and energetic level. The "knowledge" of the body that can be experienced through movement is awakened and given space through movement and presence. All participants practise for themselves, within a sound resonance field created and sustained by the group. Each day ends with a longer continuum sequence that integrates the work of the previous days. The last 36 hours are no longer interrupted by language. This allows everyone to engage with their own rhythms and themes.

Furthermore, Continuum can support our ability: 

  • to be empathic and relational
  • to be clear and decisive
  • to orient and adapt
  • to be vital and persevering
  • to self-regulate and harmonize
  • to be autonomous and team-minded
  • to act from the awareness of dynamic context
  • to process and reflect 
  • to be resilient  

Touching the history of Continuum to inquire into its future

This program - taught by 8 teachers -  integrates various decades of Continuum material. All teachers studied with Emilie Conrad who originated Continuum in the 1960’s and developed it until her death in 2014.

Emilie Conrad taught in a constant state of inquiry. While each step embedded and enfolded the previous one, it also meant students entering the work in the 80’s were exposed to different material than students entering it in the 2000’s. This program attempts to bring together various Continuum „periods“ by bringing together teachers who were introduced to the work at different times. 

The very nature of Continuum is to witness ourselves as a living process, open to the ongoing evolution of teachings and applications. Even though we follow basic core principles, Continuum remains an ongoing, unfolding inquiry into the mystery of conscious human life. Through the variety of teachers in this program, we hope to encourage students to trust their own inquiry, somatic movement research and to develop their own style.

For whom is this program?

This program is for lay people, somatic professionals, therapists, teachers, creatives, leaders, innovators - anyone who has a body - anyone who wants to connect more deeply to what it means to be human.
