A somatic & Shamanic exploration
In this workshop, we will use sound, breath and movement to dive into the realm of our fluid origin. Life sprung on earth millions years ago, Emilie Conrad, the founder of Continuum Movement said that we, the human specie, are an extension of this planetary process. The process of forming lives through various kingdoms and species over eons is what shamans have called Knowledge, the Ancestors being all the living forms that developed and evolved over the earth’s timeline. They are the living memory of the earth but also key in the development of her future.
As everything else, we are part of this Knowledge and quite obviously, we have a special role in it, but at this time, it seems that we have forgotten a little our purpose. We look confused about our direction finders: what future do we want? Are we heading towards trans-humanism? Colonies on Mars? Technology or ecology? Are we going to survive climate change? At this moment, it is unknown, it doesn’t seem that we can grasp our potential future.
However, this process of forming life and unfolding Knowledge on the earth and in the universe is expanding into another phase at this time. Many ancient prophecies report it. We are currently observing, feeling the end of a world and the birthing of a new world. We live a time of deep transformation; we can see it in ourselves and through the reality around us. Like « the Mother », the partner of Sri Aurobindo wrote 50 years ago: we are on the edge of a new development, yet we don’t know what it is or how it will look like but it will take place through our bodies.
“Meeting the ancestors” will set up a space to experience this flow of Knowledge and to consciously embody what is happening on the bigger scale in this new phase of development of the planetary process. It is a quest that is inherently in every one of us. In ancient time we would meet the shamans in their caves, nowadays we gather with conscious awareness with the same tools in workshops.
