express
yourself

Odessa Muiderport, Amsterdam

Sat 2 Jul 2022

if your body could speak, what would it say?

We, human beings, are a rainbow of feelings, emotions, thoughts and sensations.  

We may be worried about how people perceive us. Or feel ashamed, controlled by internal or external beliefs. It can be challenging to fully show up in relationships / at work / in the world, when we have parts of ourselves that we don’t think are allowed to be seen.

 

Do you have parts in yourself that feel unexplored and want to connect more deeply with? 

 

Are there pieces that you want to give a voice to?

 

Do you want to discover the joy embracing and opening up in a supportive community?

 

In this workshop you will unpack your aliveness. Using movement and the arts you will move playfully into untapped potential of feeling, embodying a fuller range of expressive power. 

 

As a group we will build a creative space for you to openly explore what arises in you and in relation to the rest of the group, allowing yourself to engage in new ways with the world.

what will happen?

 

Johnny and Simon are all about setting up creative and playful spaces where participants can dive deep into their unmet and possibly shy parts. Improvisation, movement, art making and authentic relating will be used to help you connect with parts of yourself that ask for attention, allowing them to be seen in a soft, gentle and safe space.

 

* Your ticket includes a place at Odessa’s Ecstatic Dance Playground in the evening from 18h. Come play with us during the day then dance the night away with a cacao ceremony, roller disco and ecstatic dance.

As you are on Simon's website he probably doesn't need an introduction. You can read more here.
