We are open for late applications.
The SPT Deep Dive Retreat will focus on deepening previous training. With emphasis on getting more clarity, inspiration and connection between meditation practice and SPT / embodiment practice. Explore how the two kinds of practices can enrich each other and your daily life and work. The focus will be less on how you can apply the tools in your context, and more about how you can develop, apply and polish the inner capacities and life skills that you can acquire through the practice itself. We refine our capacities of getting and staying in touch with ourselves, others and nature.
On the SPT Deep Dive Retreat we explore Social Presencing Theater (SPT) and meditation as sources of deeper Life Skills
Capacity building and deepening of the practice, through:
MEDITATION • SPT • NATURE • THEORY U
- Deepen the relationship between meditation and SPT.
- Develop previous individual practice.
- Explore deeper landscapes of social fields.
- Get time and space to invite and stay with the not knowing.
The basic frames will be like a meditation retreat
– we limit our contacts with the outside world in order to deepen our individual and collective journey. We reconnect with our most natural
(re)sources by turning our attention towards ourselves. The connection to nature will be an
important part of the retreat and we will involve both the garden and the wild nature in the area throughout the program. We work in a balance between teaching and exercises, dialog and silence, movement and stillness. Two follow up calls on Zoom will be offered, to help participants further ground the practice in their everyday context.
