Don't let your mind abandon your body, let your mind rest on top of your body right where it should be.
Mindful movement workshops draw from improvisational movement and the body-based practices of Social Presencing Theater, a method developed by Arawana Hayashi that combines contemplative practices, theater, and dialogue discussions. Simple, easy movements and poses are explored to connect with a deeper sense of self and group dynamics that lead to understanding current reality and the highest future possibilities. Participants are invited to discover the experience of embodied presence that opens the way to the wisdom of the body and leads to fresh creative insights on the journey of personal and collective transformation.
- can be adapted for any space available - an open space inside or outside (weather permitting), a meeting or conference room, cafeteria, or common space
- are typically 30-90 minutes in length
- are appropriate and inclusive for everyone - no special movement experience necessary!
I really enjoyed the whole experience. It was challenging to be vulnerable with other people but also important. In the age that we're in now, it feels paramount to be in spaces of openness and vulnerability especially when there are so many loved ones in our lives, even people that we do not know, that aren't able to advocate for themselves: race, class, disadvantage. Thank you for facilitating a space for openness and truth and equality. ~ Erin
Working with Lynda was explorative and collaborative as she helped me to discover and observe things within myself and my environment. I felt a heightened sense of awareness and calmness afterwards. ~ Sam
