Levity and Lightfulness Workshop

  • Sat. May 20,  15 – 21.30 h
  • Sun.May 21,  10 – 17 h

If your peri-pandemic world seems full of stress, worries, and existential angst, switch gears, and investigate your world of delight. If you are wishing for authentic levity, and meaningful pathways beyond the mundane, come explore a series of practices that can bring lightness and humor into everyday activity. Open up your sense of fun, and funny, your lightheartedness, perhaps even your ridiculousness and absurd. Then channel your subtler sense of humor to open up a lighter place in body and mind.

The workshop demands your active participation. Open mindful movement, voice and spirit to develop humorous non-verbal vocabulary. Strengthen the inner neural pathways that channel lightness and levity. The workshop’s explorations draw from physical theater practices, clownzen improvisations, and elements from butoh dance. We will care for body and voice using Qigong, Feldenkreis movement, Shintaido and practice kinhin (walking meditation).
