Shifting Perspectives

‘Creating new possibilities’

 

Raising awareness through gentle movement

 

Changing your perspective can bring about a change of mind. This experiential and creative workshop shifts the focus from a mental perspective to a sensory, instinctive and embodied one with the help of model-making with plasticine, mindful movement meditation and reflection with reference to the human body.

 

Would you like to:

  • Influence change by looking ‘outside the box’
  • Become an embodied, grounded and intuitive leader
  • Foster new ideas inspired by the natural environment
  • Relax your body and quieten your mind
  • Maintain stability through change

 

How does it work?

The way you move physically in response to people, situations and events can be reflected in how you mentally move and navigate yourself. To influence change and create new possibilities, you will explore through the sensory awareness of your body and its ever-changing relationship to gravity.

Mindful movement is grounded in the science of movement, in that when you move will ‘feel’ yourself from the inside.  Focusing on the sensations created from the moving body will bring you into ‘here and now’. This meditative space quietens the mind and enables you to listen and learn from nature. The physical experience of finding balance in different positions can translate into your thoughts fostering new ideas that create clarity for moving forward.

 

What can I expect?

You will explore ‘shifting perspectives’ through plasticine model-making and reflection with reference to the human body. This will be lead into gentle movement, indoors and outside, in and around the beautiful ruin of St Mary’s church.  You will be revisiting what is familiar as well as finding new and different perspectives.

 

Who is this suitable for?

All abilities welcome, there is no need to have any prior experience.  The workshop can be adapted to suit all so please just get in contact to talk through any specific requirements.

 

Do I have to bring anything with me?

Please wear appropriate clothing for movement indoors i.e. soft non-slip shoes, or bare feet and loose trousers. Also bring warm clothes, scarf, hat and gloves plus waterproof coat and trousers for moving outside
