Our Body - an Earth Being
with Mira Weinrich

Wednesday 22nd May 2024 
6.30pm - 9pm BST  (17:30 - 20.00 UTC)
An online introduction to an exciting new way of working with our bodies and with Earth

Our bodies belong to the living Earth.   They are guided by ancient planetary principles and intelligence.

 

If we grow up in the modern world paradigm, humans are separated from the overall context of life and this can lead to a feeling of non-belonging.  But every single body speaks the Earth’s mother tongue.  Earth and our body, they belong to each other. Therefore we can participate in their conversation and have relationships with the non-human world through our bodies. 

 

To do this, we need to befriend our body and relearn its old language. 

 

As our thoughts and beliefs profoundly affect our experiences, first we need to transform our worldview of separation and devaluation of the physical world in general. Cognitive science clearly shows that our thoughts act like filters that influence our perception. They enable and prevent experiences. This is where Bodywork merges with Philosophy.

To live a connected and loving relationship with our wonderful Earth, we need to think differently about Her and about our bodies. We need worldviews and philosophies which allow love and interconnectedness. Our current Western worldview prevent us from experiencing this. But there are many other old and new ways of seeing out there that we can learn from.

 

This training includes 6 tools that enable you to grow into the relationship with your own living body as an Earth being. Among other things it includes philosophical worldview-work, thinking methods, embodiment techniques, touch exercises and self-encounter forms. These tools were developed against the background of Hawaiian Bodywork, Indigenous-Hawaiian and European Philosophy, and neuro- and cognitive scientific research.

 

The first step is to treat your own body like an intelligent, sentient and loving being.  This is where we begin in our workshop.
