Embracing the Unknow – Allowing the Dance of Polarities
August 25th to 28th, 2022
Social Presencing Theater, Silence, Nature and YOU….
Movalogue is an annual gathering of Social Presencing Theater practictioners to deepen our connection with the practice. We will be connecting , at moments, with the Global Movalogue community which unfolds both in presence and online with the Motto of “Embracing the Unknown”.
We invite you to dive into the wisdom of the body with the powerful practice of Social Presencing Theater created by Arawana Hayashi
What is Social Presencing Theater (SPT)?
Spt is a series of, improvisation and embodiment practices that develop capacity for awareness-based engagement in social and organisational transformation (grounded in Theory U framework).
SPT is a method that enables individuals and groups to experience their current reality more clearly and to allow them to move into a saner, more compassionate future.
Drawing on the arts and contemplative traditions, Social Presencing Theater brings to the surface a clearer sense of the relationships, hidden dynamics, and emerging possibilities inherent in a team, organization or larger system. It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change.
It sets the ground for creative collective action.
“Theater” here denotes an empty stage or a blank canvas where the different aspects and roles of the system can be embodied. In that space, the roles can interact in fresh and creative ways to reveal emerging possibilities hidden in the system.
It is “the art of making a true move.”
We will play with the canvas of the beautiful nature of Quinta Ten Chi – co-creating many collective micro-actions to allow the dance of polarities to become present in the field, bringing the wisdom of cycles, and the multitude existing in Oneness.
We will be brushes dipped in paint, revealing the texture of the human tapestry of the moment.
We will play softly with ourselves and each other.
Allowing time for long MA, interval, gaps, moments when the body settles, sensitivity grows and we feel fully alive and embedded in the movement of life and death. We can see a development of the theme is this poem created during our last Silent Retreat in Nature. Celebrating the Dance of Polarities allow us to be present also in the parts of our being that feel difficult, crunchy and unwanted.
Lets Dance our fullness and wholesomeness together, in a flux betwwen Life and Death, many of our cells day every moment and many being born. Many of our ways of being shedding away if we allow movement to be part of our life.
We are LIVING and DYING being, transported into manifestation by the flickering of an endlessly unfolding manifold….Enjoy!
