Continuum

Continuum

A Moving Inquiry Training Program

What is Continuum?

Continuum is a somatic approach through which we can inquire and learn to tune into our bodies as living events, as an ongoing orchestration of communication and resonance, as creative intelligence operating in every cell. 

We can experience that we are movement and that the movement we are can inform the movement we do. We can also experience direct sensory contact with an all-pervasive regulatory dynamic. 

Touching the history of Continuum to inquire into its future

Emilie Conrad originated Continuum in the 1960’s and developed it until her passing in 2014. 

This program - taught by an international team of 8 experienced teachers - integrates various decades of Continuum material.

All teachers were trained and authorized directly by Emilie Conrad during different periods of its development. They all carry aspects of the history of the work. By exploring this history, core principles of Continuum can be integrated and new impulses for its ongoing development can organically arise.

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.
