JUICE - a freedomDANCE® workshop with Alex Svoboda and Julia Malik
This workshop is a safe space for exploring our creative life-force energy through conscious movement. This energy which expresses itself, among other things, through sexuality, is a juice that flows through each of us. Finally, here is an advanced freedomDANCE workshop in London that fully focuses on that JUICE!
We will do everything possible to ensure that personally, you feel safe exploring topics that are often highly personal and sensitive:
- We will take time to get to know each other through dance and create an atmosphere of trust;
- We will be in a company of people who share familiarity with conscious movement (hence, the pre-requisites);
- We will be guided by two highly experienced facilitators.
Dance can't exist without life-force energy. Furthermore, dance often activates sexuality! All those things that we usually censor out manifest themselves when we are dancing. Dancing gives us the highest degree of self-expression, authenticity and intimacy. Sometimes this energy takes over us, highjacks our brains. What does it all mean? What do I do with this creative-sexual energy that arises on the dance floor? What can be done with it so that enriches our experience and helps us grow?
The same energy is a catalyst in our relationships outside the dance floor. How much do we know about attraction, contact and ultimate intimacy? Do we know what activates this energy? What is acceptable for us, what serves us and what doesn't? How can we express our sexual preferences so that our partner 'gets it'?
Many of us who practice conscious movement regularly have experienced how life-force energy can transform into the highest form of openness and intimacy on the dance floor, without any actions of sexual nature. Can we experience the same in our everyday life?
The main intention of our practice is to bring awareness into all aspects of our life so that our unconscious reactions give way to our choice. It is time to apply this approach and use our favourite and tested movement tools to work with sexuality and how it manifests itself on the dance floor and in our life!
