European Intensives – Come Play with Sara in the field of possibilities

The physical body is the holder of extraordinary perception.  This is our platform and our base of information and actions.  Work within the deep heart of your natural voice of the body and explore through self-inquiry what you are passionate about now.  The workshops are varied and each focuses on a specific modality of expression – be it contact, energy fields, perceptual research, scenarios, puzzles, stretching the imagination muscles and moving into the imaginal realm of the subconscious or skills that can articulate your intentions. Writing, journaling and moving through summer as a vision.

Other Trainings

This classes and workshops are available upon request.

MOVEMENT ALCHEMY

Level I

Being in the Body from the ground up. Bringing you deeply inside, we will explore segments of the physical structure and converse with the energetic structure. There will be a lot of breathing, hands on, time for questions and sharing.  We will also do grounding work, protection and releasing modalities.

This workshop is structured with Chi Cultivation as a beginning, moving into improvisational research, to partnering, integration and sharing.  It may include creative construction and a variety of other tools according to the desire of the students.

Chi Cultivation included – A series of movement/breath exercises that articulate the spine, work the muscles, touch all the meridians and will raise your physical energy and your consciousness building strength and vitality.

Level II

The Energetic body – in relationship. Playing in the field of space, time, weight and relationship.  The whole is more than the parts. Establishing personal and impersonal game plans we enter the terrain of choice, focus, ease and clarity.  Owning your choices.

Level III

Touch 1– the alchemy of transformation through touch.  We Touch before we make physical contact. Playing in the depth of field, holding vibrations and blending them to create balance and power.  Learning to take an improvisational state into a performative composition. Writing, personal growth work and energy alignment are key to integrative application of this work. Mastery of your intention and attention.  Energy release work – holding and blending states – anchoring into the breath  –  having fun in research mode.

Touch 2 – Deep Touch – the hands as a source of connection to the whole brain, spine and heart and the whole being at a multi-dimensional level – from the energy field into the skin, muscles, organs and bones of the physical body.  Hands on.  Blending energetic healing work and dance/movement.

Writing for Scenario 

Imagination and Perception from the perspective of the director for the audience/witness – the paradox of things seen, imagined, unseen and imagined.  This is a workshop/training for learning how you write and how you imagine from the impersonal to the vulnerable you and what you are up to on the planet.  What is truth for you, what is your field of expertise and how to land image and writing, write from the outside, the inside and name and process and make impossible choices.  (For your own research)

Composing

Questions and the Creative toolbox investigation. This includes play, curiosity, your field of expertise and collaboration with your own frequency.   Through feeling through the visual, auditory, kinesthetic fields and the unified field we work to identify  the ways in which you create and developing other muscles.

This work can be tailored for professional dancers, or any level of experience. It can be offered in individual, group, workshop, or choreographic project-based formats. Please contact me for rates and schedule
