Ben Yeger



Location: Berlin
Venue: to be decided

Dates & Times: 01 Nov 2019 to 03 Nov 2019  10:00 - 18:00


In this weekend workshop, you will be invited to take a step into the shoes of

the Dancing Fool, exploring ways back to your curiosity, humility, lightness and

spaciousness. Remembering how it is to be connected and at peace with

yourself and the world around you.


How much time do you spend in a state of wonder

and amazement?

 

What is getting in the way of you being curious

and fascinated?

 

How can you relax into being simply you?

Movement Medicine practice works with three central archetypal characters.

The Dancing Warrior, The Wise Elder and the Dancing Fool. These serve as

medicine to the drama triangle of the Rescuer (Wise Elder), Persecutor (Dancing

Warrior) and the Victim (The Dancing Fool).

 

In this one-day workshop, you will be invited to take a step into the shoes of

the Dancing Fool, exploring ways back to your curiosity, humility, lightness and

spaciousness. Remembering how it is to be connected and at peace with

yourself and the world around you.

 

When we attach ourselves to polarising opinions, fixed positions and taking

ourselves too seriously we can loose sight of the simple things in life. The

dancing fool can help us untangle this tendency. Exploring this archetype can

help us practice non attachment to absolute rights and wrongs, to see the good

in life and find a sense of infinite possibility and expansiveness.

 

We will draw on Movement medicine, clowning and Drama Therapy to explore

this rich and playful terrain. The day promises to be surprisingly revealing and

have shades of shamanic foolery. Laughter might occur and having a good

time will be permitted.
