We invite you to a Tantric Dance playshop to explore the somatic and psychological limitations we built around our body. In this somatic embodiment and dance workshop we will look at the restrictions we impose on our physicality in social context. We will address shame and the cultural narratives around nudity with the impact it has on our ability to feel comfortable in our own skin. We will build a safe container of trust and invite you to peak over the fence of default social conventions we follow, still honoring the boundaries that support our integrity. In this safe clothing optional space, we will dance together, exploring touch and nudity in a non sexual context to restore our ability to relate to each other in our most natural state. Curriculum: Part I: Body Presentations and Somatic Reprogramming We will circle as a community to share our body stories, and express new narratives for ourselves and each other. Uncovering the body can unveil the shame and the trauma cycles, using movement and awareness to release stuck patterns and beliefs. Part II: Boundaries, consent and clothing optional Contact Improvisation We invite you to enjoy a healthy physical interaction while being true to ourselves, interacting without any obligation. We explore how to connect without grasping, honor our yes and no, and reassess every moment, always following our inner authority. We aim to restore spontaneity and co-create a new paradigm of open communication, that starts with the body and ripples out in all aspects of our beings.
