- Ouroborus - Moving medicine from the dark -
Continuum workshop with Kai Erhardt (6 days + 2 nights)
This event can be booked separately as workshop, or can be joined as a module of the Continuum Advanced Training. Ample experience in Continuum is required.
This module is dedicated to the themes of life cycles, death and initiation. Over the first four days, a Continuum 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 a place of receptivity.
From the bones to the skin, from the breath to the 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 invited and expressed in movement awareness. 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 42 hours are no longer interrupted by language. This allows everyone to engage with their own rhythms and themes.
What does Ouroborus mean?
Ouroborus is a symbol of the eternal cycles and transformations in nature and cosmos - every end is a beginning. In Continuum, we dive into the body and under our regular everyday consciousness. It is a deepening process from rational thinking to the Eros of whole-body healing resources and the self-regulatory freedom of movement expression.
What will happen?
The body is brought into oscillation on all levels through movements and sounds, in pleasurable expansion and slowness - inhalation & exhalation, expansion & contraction, becoming & deconstructing. Permeability, presence and the ability to receptively surrender are trained. What is no longer necessary integrates or dissolves, new information emerges - physically, emotionally, inspirationally, trans-rationally
What is possible in the process?
The whole system body-psyche-environment reorganizes and regulates itself. We invite our own innate medicine - images, sensations, insights. Our own physicality opens up inner resources, creates balance, clarifies and strengthens the Self.
