In this workshop physical and vocal exercises and games are used to promote creativity, mindfulness and a greater in the moment awareness of body and mind. They act like a mirror in which we can gently and kindly observe ourselves.
Working with the body is very effective in supporting meditation, providing the tools to enable embodied transformation. The spirit of improvisation encourages us to listen to ourselves and research how we respond to ourselves and each other in performance and in life. We discover what choices we make and where our interest and fascination lie. We learn to notice and engage with the rhythm, patterns and texture of our own and others' expressions. Attention is light, yet focused in a playful way, allowing for direct engagement with the present moment.
In this one-day workshop we will spend some time grounding ourselves in the body and physical experience, to then together research ways of moving into Mindfulness and Metta practice. Participants pay close attention to themselves and others within the movement and will have lots of laughs along the way.
Jayachitta has been working with this approach for many years, with meditators in Scotland, the UK, Germany, Holland, the USA and India. She regularly leads retreats on Improvisation and Meditation at Dhanakosa.
She enjoys assisting people in becoming more present to themselves in their glorious multifaceted selves. For more info on her work see:
