water-955929_1280During this retreat, we aim to address the issues around self-care. Whether we are therapists, clients, or just regular folks, self-care is our life insurance in today’s world challenges. Without this consciousness, our health is in the hand of the random and chaotic forces that our cultures have developed.
One of the mission statement of Continuum Movement® has been to bring back an awareness around self care through a practice that involves a deep attention to our sensation as a “first order experience”, meaning the most direct sensory information, without the cognitive, emotional or behavioral filters.
By being attentive to our sensations, we become more aware of our own need, and we give a counterpart to the cultural assumption that the health of our body is in the hand of an external opinion.
Many of our society constructs are about to give our own power away to be fed by external “expertise”, not saying that we don’t need doctors or specialists, but rather that we can take care of ourselves and maintain health, balance and creativity.
In Continuum we use specifics breaths, vocal sounds, movement sequences and visualization to awaken what we call the fluid system, the presence of 70 % of water flowing throughout the body (connective tissues, blood, lymph, CSF…). We invoke the intelligence of nature, as a resonant field that not only connect us to the earth but to all species and beyond to the universe.
The fluid system seems to play an important role in rejuvenation by enhancing and producing more fluid activity and hydrating our body. We could say that aging is dehydration process. Movement and sound (or vibration) are two powerful mediums to engage with organic activities. Combined with touch, visualization and attention, they form the basis of the practice of Continuum.
During this week, we will explore, experience and embody these concepts in combination with Cranio-Sacral principles.
We will particularly look at bodily tissues, how touch, sounds and breath can shift rigidified or dense tissue through the awakening of fluid activity.

“ The real gift of this work, which emphasizes an opening to direct communication and direct knowledge, is to reclaim our bodies, sensations and consciousness to further our sovereignty and self-empowerment”. S.M.
