Why You Should Take This Course!
Artist, bodyworker and movement arts practitioner Red K Elders is offering seven weeks of guided experiential explorations into our bodies, opening and expanding more of our wondrous sensing capabilities, expanding our capacities for communication with many intelligences and cleaving more closely to the underlying choreography of the cosmos.
Red will be sharing her personal techniques and practises that she uses to attune to other bodies for healing and nourishment and to access flow states for creative inspiration and divine expression. Each week there will be video and audio presentations including guided meditations and practical exercises offered for you to explore in your own time and space. Also, the opportunity to share and feed back your experiences, and witness others, in well-supported and facilitated Facebook group.
We try our best to make this course accessible for all shapes, sizes, experiences and abilities. You will be supported to move at your own pace in ways that feel absolutely right for you. If you have any questions about rightness of fit or accessibility for you, feel free to contact us.
Week 1: Open Whole Body Sensing
Exploring ways to come into the fullness of our whole bodies, releasing accumulations of tensions that prevent us from experiencing the magnitude of all our sensing capacities. Holding and caring for ourselves through releasing processes.
Week 2: Your Mythic Form
Guided movement explorations to feel into who you truly know yourself to be, in your innermost being, and beginning to discover which mythic forms are living through you.
Week 3: Accessing Super Senses
Expanding outwards through mythic forms, giving them full life and breath, and feeling into the new experience-sensations of being alive in greater bodies of awareness.
Week 4: Many Bodies of Intelligence
The wonder of connecting with many other living beings – human and also rocks and trees, or animals and oceans, stars. Making new friendships and alliances with other bodies. Shapeshifting.
Week 5: Dreaming While Awake
Focused journeying through movement induced trance states for creative inspiration, insight and deep healing. Especially working with complexity and limitation in the body.
Week 6: Meeting the Gods
Expanding our sense of self beyond all boundaries. Merging with the cosmos.
Week 7: Grounding and Integration
Additional skills for grounding back into our bodies, and integrating new experiences.
Also anything that comes up during the previous weeks’ practices that may need further exploration or unpacking will be addressed in this final session.
This online course will take place over seven weeks and include video and audio presentations of guided meditations, somatic explorations, and movement practices.
