A conference exploring portals to the landscape of the body.

Since ancient times and through all lineages the connection with the land has been a deep internal resource for our soul, body, mind, and spirit.

At this gathering, we will deepen our artistry to commune with our own body, the body of the other, as well as the bigger body of the earth and those who have walked before us.

Through somatic and movement practices we will balance our nervous system, connect with our fluid system, and enter into a dreamscape of sensations and images. Participants will experience a sense of deep belonging expressing and sharing their experiences through the language of the creative arts. From this place of safety we will inquire further into themes, including

  • The power of ritual: conscious actions of the sacred.
  • The amniotic waters. The landscape of gestation
  • Dreamtime as a conscious setting of intent
  • Our breath, a spiraling pathway
  • Portals: landscapes of release and replenishment
  • Ancestors: Listening to the wisdom and healing of lineage.

We look forward to co-create this experience with creative souls, somatic practitioners and researchers, expressive artists, and anyone with a curiosity to inquire into the theme of the breathing body in relationship to the bigger landscape.
