THE ALCHEMY SERIES

...a MOVEMENT INTENSIVE for a journey of discovery...

This movement intensive explores IMPROVISATION as a means to discover deep levels of connection, creativity and community. With a focus on movement, we will develop trust in the profound wisdom of the body, allowing our intuition to activate and inspire the dance. Together, we will embark on a deep excavation of the connections between inner self and outer expression in a dynamic process of affirmation and transformation. Through moving, witnessing and reflecting, we will investigate and integrate our sensations, feelings, memories and imaginings through mindful engagement with the body and breath. Alchemy engages the heart and enriches the spirit in a joyful celebration of the moving moment.

This series will culminate in a performance SHARING of improvised movement for invited guests. Beginners and experienced movers warmly welcomed.

THE ADVANCED ALCHEMY WEEKEND

…a DEEPER DIVE for the experienced Alchemist…  

 This 2-day ADVANCED ALCHEMY INTENSIVE will explore improvised movement as a means to discover deep levels of connection, creativity and community. We will develop trust in the profound wisdom of the body, allowing our intuition to activate and inspire the dance and recognising the profound connections between inner life and outer expression. We will integrate our sensations, feelings, memories and imaginings in a dynamic process of affirmation and transformation. Can deep RECEPTIVITY amplify our CREATIVITY? Can INTENTION invite spontaneous COMPOSITION? Can our movement RADIATE with the fullness of who we are?

THE ALCHEMY DAY 

…a NOURISHING DAY for a taste of Alchemy...

This day of DANCE IMPROVISATION will provide a pathway to presence, connection and joy. In the generosity of the space, we will develop TRUST in our inner world - listening to our intuition and following our impulses with playfulness and spontaneity. We will be inspired by the deep wisdom of the body, allowing its profound intelligence to activate and inspire the dance. Together, we will explore the language of the heart and experience movement as a tender and dynamic conversation with our full and radiant sense of self.

Through movement, writing and sharing, this workshop is for those wishing to honour the expression of the body, embrace authenticity and liberate creativity. Alchemy engages the heart and enriches the spirit in a joyful celebration of the moving moment.

Beginners and experienced movers warmly welcomed. Please bring a JOURNAL to record your revelations.
