Embodiment: The Journey Home to Ourselves

A Continuum Workshop
Taught by Robin Becker

“Movement is something we ARE, not something we do.”
—Emilie Conrad, Founder of Continuum

Renew, restore, and increase your vitality by exploring the fluid nature of the body through Continuum, an innovative movement practice. All life, including the human body has been shaped by the movement of water, and all exchange of information within the body and the larger world happens through the expression of fluid movement. Just as the earth blossoms each spring, the body is an endless resource of unfolding possibilities.  

In this workshop, we will learn a universal language of biologically based movement incorporating breath and sounding practices that initiate personal movement explorations. Robin Becker guides us in a process in which we discover how to restore ourselves from within and reclaim our birthright of fluid potential. In Continuum, each person’s unique path of embodiment is valued as the expression of an ancient planetary process.

The benefit of engaging in Continuum is often one of profound renewal, ease, and an increase of energy. Many who participate in this practice express the delight of finding a way to offer self-care and a type of supportive bodywork to themselves.

This program is appropriate and safe for everyone. Continuum supports all other movement practices, including shiatsu, massage, yoga, dance—and life itself.

Friday evening March 2 nd will be an Introduction to Continuum for those who are new to the work.

Embodiment: The Journey Home to Oneself

A Continuum Workshop
Taught by Robin Becker

www.Kientalerhof.ch

“I see our bodies formed by the liquid of our first cradle. Our early watery environment shapes and gives us its secret. This is our first home, our ‘primordial field.’ The fluid in our cells is our birthplace, our memory of the creative matrix in which all life is summoned.”
—Emilie Conrad, founder of ContinuumMovement

“We do not live on the earth, we are the earth.”
—Sister Miriam MacGillis

In this fast moving era, so many of us are looking for deep rest, renewal and safety. Through the practice of Continuum, the nature of the body becomes a process we learn to reclaim, recognize, and trust again. Continuum is an innovative exploration of the body as a fluid system. From the formation of galaxies to the pulsing cells of the human body, all life forms have been shaped by and share the fundamental movement of spiraling fluid systems. From the waves of the air, the waters of the planet, the rays of the sun and the unfolding growth of plants-- all life is in movement. Composed primarily of water, all exchange of information within the body and with the larger world happens through this universal language of fluid movement.

The longing for restoration and a return to an experience of living with ease and possibility is answered in Continuum. As we join with the biologically based primary movements that are ever present within us, we learn how restoration and renewal is the birthright of our fluid nature. Many who participate express the delight of finding a way through Continuum to offer self-care and new dimensions of supportive bodywork to themselves.

In this workshop, Robin weaves her expertise and knowledge of Continuum together with her lifelong study of the body and physical expression through dance and movement improvisation. The workshop will include a ‘dreamtime’ or a period of silence, during which we move and rest in the deep listening and resonance of the group.

July 9 at 8:00 pm to July 10 at 6pm will be An Introduction to Continuum, that is a requirement for those who are new to the work.

The in-depth workshop will begin on July 10 at 8pm.

This movement practice is appropriate and safe for everyone at ALL mobility levels. No previous movement or dance experience is required.

Module 4
of a 200 hour, 8 module

Moving Inquiry Continuum Training Program
Embodiment and the Creative Process
Taught by Robin Becker

The focus of module 4 will be on the body as a creative process. Approaching the body with a sense of interest and openness to discovery, we will explore how the primary movement motifs and processes of our biology can serve as a metaphor for our creative endeavors. Continuum offers a methodology through which we learn to be receptive to new and unfamiliar patterns moving through us.

All creative processes offer us the challenge of learning to recognize and welcome that which is unknown. In this module, we will continue to build our perceptual capacity and deepen in our sensory awareness of the silent realm of movement within. Through ongoing practice we gain the experience of moving with an underlying unity and unfolding mystery of life. The nature of the body becomes a resource we learn to trust and rely upon as we meet unknown territory and the emerging possibilities of new innovation.

This module will include explorations of the following inquiries:
• the relationship of imagination and image-to- body function and expression
• the role of creative play and dialogue in all learning processes
• how context shapes the possibilities and outcomes of all creative processes

Entry to the 200 hour training program is possible anytime. You do not have to attend the entire 8 module program.
