To any vision must be brought an eye adapted to what is to be seen, and having some likeness to it’. Plotinus
In this workshop we will explore the primal, pre-birth, landscape we all share, and open up an opportunity to meet ourselves in a new way.
Using imaging and felt-sense, we will follow the impulse of becoming embodied, experiencing the awakening of existing life forces in a gradual journey of individuation. Our development and embodying is an ever-evolving exchange from the internal to the external environment, from macro to microcosm, layer upon layer like a musical form of ‘call and response’, back and forth.
From Function comes Form and, as energies coalesce, our energy centres go through a series of ignitions. Individual experience is present at this time when we are in a way both creator and created and in the process of creation.
There are certain key moments where we can explore this phase that precedes the development of our special senses: sight, touch. We will be especially looking at the emergence of our face from the bulging heart.
We come out knowing everything and then spend the rest of our lives working out what that is.
‘The countenance is the portrait of the soul and the eyes mark its intention’. Cicero
