Residential workshop with Laura Bisognin Lorenzoni and Bernard Thiry at the Casa Laboratorio di Cenci (TR) in Umbria
Four days of movement immersed in nature in the open countryside, between meadows and woods, away from busy roads. Thanks to the multiple and transversal experiences of movement of Laura and Bernard, the proposals of this workshop will make you get out of your habits to accompany you on a path of greater awareness of yourself, of others and of the world around us. We will meet different movement disciplines: contemporary dance, contact dance, Spacial Dynamics®, meditation, martial arts, massages, group games, accompanied by walks and experiences in nature. The goal of this meeting is to give keys and techniques related to the dynamic forces that govern every movement, which allow you to release unnecessary tensions and have greater self-confidence, but also more balance, strength, energy, flexibility and therefore freedom. This work promotes the autonomy of the person, transmitting tools to make their own and to bring within their daily habits or personal movement research. Our research is linked to the root of man's presence on earth, to discover resonances between the body and the cosmos. Through perceptive practices and actions linked to movement we investigate the possible correspondences that bind us to the sky, to the fire, to the night, to the wind, to the forest, finding the freedom to listen in silence.

Practicing in life - living in practice. And how movement helps.
The six subsidiary exercises of Rudolf Steiner in connection with Spacial-Dynamics® movements. The so-called subsidiary exercises of Rudolf Steiner are about developing skills that make us stronger, more flexible and at the same time more stable in our everyday life. The first subsidiary exercise, for example, involves: guiding one's thoughts purposefully, concentrating on essentials in one's actions, and becoming more and more attentive. In addition, they are also helpful companions for a deeper meditation and training path. In the course we will complement the subsidiary exercises with appropriate movement principles and exercises from Spacial Dynamics®. We will practice intensively and exchange ideas.
