The body speaks
Allowing your body to speak seems awkward at first glance because the body may express itself naturally out of your comfort zone. Used to controlling your body from the head you don't always notice there is a difference. We are basically using our body as a slave telling it what to do, leading to all kinds of problems over time. But what if your body knows better?! This course will teach you how to move away from this restricting control and transition into an embodied flow state. From thinking to thanking. In an increasingly artificial world, a natural connection with the body is essential. Having receptive skills will increase your opportunity of utilising the 3 intelligence centres better. This course focusses on aligning and balancing your 3 intelligence centres being: The Heart, the Body and the Mind. Recognise the diversity of your deeper intelligence by tapping into your natural strengths and abilities. Empower internal communication and grow your overall performance skills to be able to surprise yourself in the moment and inspire your audiences!
What to expect?
Live Q&A sessions, videos guiding experienced based exercises, printables and audio files along with a community of fellow students to share questions and ideas with makes this experience come alive at your own convenience.
What makes this course different?
When you're already engaged in yoga, sports or forms of meditation, The Receptive Mind course complements these practices really well. The course offers embodied mindfulness exercises that reveal an exciting new approach to observing and centering yourself during performance and other activities. For example: How you relate to what you do, is how you relate to yourself in the process. When working towards a goal from a place of frustration, you are teaching your body and heart frustration. The body has peptides that function like emotional neurotransmitters that literally store emotions in your body. 'How' you practise to start with becomes more important then 'what' you practise, and that is something I often miss in other teachings.
Why do it?
Once the potential of inner communication is established through practise it allows the body to speak to you, your body will respond to your attention like a child that is seen, listened to, loved and come alive resulting in increased vitality, flexibility, spontaneity and inner joy. When you learn how to observe and practise attentive focus in the right way you start creating more and more moments of true presence growing your intuitive abilities and authenticity over time whilst leaving insecurities and irrational fears at bay. This I believe is what makes an incredible engaging and passionate actor, performer, artist, and creator in life.
