This weekend workshop will particularly focus upon experiencing through embodiment and movement the activation of the fluid system as a parallel system that connects us constantly but silently to our biosphere and all eco-systems. Our body is composed, like our planet of approximately 70-75 % of water, which permeates through all bodily tissues, bones, organs, cells, eccettera. Bodily water and fluids function as a connective field for all chemical and electrical activities that take place in our body, interconnecting all systems to form a coherent whole, where information is constantly exchanged to maintain homeostasis. The nervous system has been taking all our attention so far, but consciousness seems to dwell elsewhere, Continuum suggests taking a deeper look at our fluid existence, to dive into our watery ancestry to maybe understand more of ourselves. Continuum movement® was founded by somatic pioneer Emilie Conrad (1934-2014), and is a proposition to explore the powerful connection between breath, sound and movement and their effects on the fluid system. The body becomes a door gate to explore our ancient origin and the origin of life. The roots of Continuum could be found in the old Mystery School of Asclepian Temples in Greece for instance, where the use of sacred sounds, dreams, water baths and dark chambers were the mediums for healing. In our modern version we use a more somatic setting: lying on a mat, sitting or using a chair, in combination with specific breaths, vocal sounds and movement sequences. The work is about creating a resonant field that will increase our connection with the larger earth and cosmic fields. We also reconnect with our sensations, our breath and attention through emphasizing self-awareness, and we slow down in order to hear better what is happening inside and beyond ourselves. We are moving creatures since our ancestry begins with the first microorganisms that sprung into life around 3 milliards years ago. Continuum is a proposition and an inquiry to recapitulate the moving process of life from our deepest origin till now.
