The Elemental Nature of the Body: Somatic Movement Summit V
July 19th to 24th, 2020, Omega Institute
Choosing a path of opening in the face of global crisis and personal adversity begins a journey inward to connect with the most primordial movements of nature and with the elemental self to reveal our inherent biological capacity for innovation.
Through the somatic awareness practice of Continuum, this restorative retreat investigates the vital chemistry of all life. Embodying the qualities of earth, air, fire and water awakens the body’s fluid capacity for healing, insight, and creative engagement.
Meeting our intrinsic selves through movement, breath and sound leads to a sense of wholeness, refreshment, nourishment and belonging with the natural world. From this inner space of knowing, we can access the empowerment, creativity and courage that lead to manifesting meaningful contributions in the world.
Movement sessions, periods of silence, and opportunities for artful expression, personal reflection, and community exchange combine to offer a fresh model of alive, sensory presence pertinent to educators, health care practitioners, artists, activists and all who wish to learn skills for life-force growth.
Elaine Colandrea with Megan Bathory-Peeler, Cory Blake, Ellen Cohen, Suzanne Wright Crain, Melanie Gambino, Bonnie Gintis, Rebecca Lawson, Elisabeth Osgood-Campbell, Linda Rabin, Kori Tolbert, Lauren Wadsworth, and Sharon Weil.
