Nourish: a Movement Medicine day retreat for women

Petra Bongartz



Location: Cape Town, Western Cape
Venue: Body Intelligence Studio, Noordhoek, Cape Town
Cost: R550-750

Dates & Times: 03 Feb 2019 to 03 Feb 2019  09:30 - 17:00


Take time out from the busyness and treat yourself to some me- and we-time in movement and the nourishing company of other women. A day to pause, reflect and resource yourself... Balm for body, heart and mind. Come as you are, with all that moves inside you and in your life:  your joys and your struggles, your grief and your celebrations, your questions and your ideas, your gentleness and your wild self. There is space and a dance for it all on the Nourish dancefloor. 

This time, we call on the support of the energies of the Air and the Wind. Our most immediate connection to this is the energy of our own breath. Dance, as Anna Halprin says, is 'the breath made visible'. We will explore the dance of our inner critic and that of the Dancing Fool (the part that is curious and innocent), working with the qualities of gratitude, wonder, joy, creativity and playfulness. We will ask the winds to lift us high so that we may see the big picture of our lives from above, cultivating a greater sense of spaciousness within and around us, whilst acknowledging the web of interconnectedness of which we are all a part.

Throughout, we will work with Movement Medicine and other creative, reflective and playful practices, to arrive (back) home in our being, to resource ourselves and find nourishment, inspiration and support in our togetherness as women. Sharing who we are in movement and through giving each other the gift or presence, listening and sharing, we strengthen our inner resources and the rich web of connections between us.
