“Man’s main task is to give birth to himself. ”
― Erich Fromm
Through embodied movement and expressive arts we will deepen into our early traumas and how they have structured our person and relationships in our life. Through knowing and feeling the experience of that part of ourself, we can then accept that this part exists within and expresses itself, when current life situations trigger early emotional states.
Through embodied movement and somatic practices we will develop tools to calm, stay in direct experience and sensations and so be present, to better cope with intrusive thoughts and feelings.
Through self knowing and acceptance we will create an "Ode to Self", a ritualized multimodal expression-poetry, visual arts, drama, movement and other creative expressions- to express, let go and accept the new.
