This 6-day retreat style festival, conducted in an amazing nature setting in the mountains of south Spain, is an opportunity to explore awareness through movement. The schedule presents different movement & touch practices, that each in their unique way invites into a deeper presence in the body, vital aliveness and physical wellbeing.
The reason why we call it a festival, is that there is multiple options; 2 workshops going on at the same time. Still each of the teacher has classes every day so you can choose to go more in-depth with your favorites.
We also emphazise a meditative approach, invite to silent hours once in a while and integrate the meditative aspect as part of what we explore in the movement practices.
So you could as well view it as a retreat. We wish to get the best out of both worlds.
The theme of the festival is body and movement as a gateway to intensified awareness. Dance, yoga, touch, relaxation, meditation - all give different opportunities to explore and observe our cellular selves.
>>NOTE! The ticket you buy here at Billetto, only covers participation in all activities on the festival schedule. >>FOOD & LODGING IS PAID SEPARATELY --CASH--ON ARRIVAL! Please read more details below.
None of the practices are about performance or perfection - we want to offer a space for exploration of your own authentic expression. We welcome practitioners at all levels, you need no previous experience in any of the practices - only a passion to explore the field of body and movement and to cultivate awareness.
The schedule is quite packed and spans over a broad spectrum of embodied practices. The ambition is not that you take part in everything, but that you choose a few things that interest you the most, to dive into. You can choose to try around, or to follow a few particular teachers through all the days.
