UPDATE : THE GROUP IS FULL
Embodied Sexuality playshop
with Monika Körschner
Dancing with the flow of life force,
exploring sexual energy as a source of creativity, vitality, presence & aliveness.
A 3-days dive, moving, experiencing & relaxing in being together
in a closed group,
in the safe womb of Monte Maravilhas’ yurt,
in the heart of wild Alentejo
Our creative sexual energy is an essential part of our body’s natural expression and movement potential. Open Floor LIBIDO FUNDAMENTALS invites us to sense, move and integrate more fully this life force in all areas of your life.
From the first cells that evolve us into being, to the deep surrender of our last exhale, our lifespan is infused with libido. When sexual energy is acknowledged, supported and expressed authentically, our potential for healing is immense and empowering. We honour our whole self.
Dance awakens this potent energy in ways that can be electrifying, joyful, overwhelming, frightening, mystifying, and everything in between. Because sexuality is so often underground, ignored, or unconsciously acted out, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, liberating, intimate and powerful.
Through Open Floor conscious dance we create an safe, sex positive environment to engage in this complex, mysterious and in-depth investigation with curiosity, mindfulness and compassion. We seek to understand how sexuality is shaped by culture, narratives, and social conditioning, and we explore ways to liberate ourselves as we move towards erotic wholeness.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A WORKSHOP?
We explore this lively, sometimes latent energy of libido with curiosity and mindfulness using the Open Floor Core Movement Ressources.
We open up physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual terrains of our life force.
Next to intensive movement practices we will explore through related exercises, enquiries, sharings, and specific transmissions to deepen and integrate our experience.
There is no explicit sexual content or exercises.
Have a little taste of what you may encounter with this introduction film about Open Floor’s work on Embodied Sexuality :
WHO IS IT FOR ?
LIBIDO programs are open to all adults regardless of their gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and relationship status. We strive to co-create an environment that is inclusive, curious and expansive, and honours the experiences each person’s presence.
To participate you need some experience with conscious dance forms such as Open Floor, 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, Biodanza, Open Hearts Dance with Anaïs, etc. This to ensure a base that allows you to deepen your experience.
Embodied Sexuality programs are for those who :
* are looking to cultivate erotic intelligence and expand their capacity to love life
* are interested in an embodied and healthy exploration of their sexuality
* want to unpack the multilayered dynamics of attraction and attachment, as well as the cultural and social conditioning that inform our personal and collective stories, both past and present
* want to intentionally connect through movement with the source of their desires to experience greater fulfillment and satisfaction in relationships of all kinds
* want to harness the energy of libido for creative pursuits.
LIBIDO FUNDAMENTALS is a pre-requisite to the Open Floor Teacher Training.
