MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE

MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE

Both movement and image arise from a place of abstract understanding- of intuitive depth that bypasses the language of our everyday interaction and presents itself through form, color, shape and dynamic. By making the invisible visible we can interact, observe and allow what has come out to impress back upon us.

In this workshop we invite the expressions of the un-analyzable through practices rooted creative play. We will give the unconscious a container. Co-facilitators Tracy Broyles and jaime lee christiana will guide you through exercises based in Dance/somatic inquiry and Core Energetics (Tracy), and experimenting with object/reflective altar building (jaime lee.)

INSIDE/OUTSIDE, Dance, Core Energetics Class.

Tuesdays 2/6, 2/13, 2/20 7-9 pm

Momentum Studio 1028 SE Water Ave, suite 250

tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/insideoutiside-tickets-42436677244

“We are situated between infinitely large and infinitely small
Suspended from forever points.”

We have natural inclinations towards turning our gaze inward, or outwards, as well as cycles dictated by our past and present situations. Our lens resides somewhere around this window of expansion and contraction and through this we see our scope of life.

In this series of interconnected workshops the aim is to give you more insight, as well as more autonomy of choice, into how you reach towards your internal depths and/or your environment. How you might dance with the curiosity that quickens our attention towards one or another perspective. Noticing, playing, and embodying where we have distortions in moving out or moving in.

Somatic inquiry, movement improvisation and core energetics concepts are employed as our method of discovery. Letting the body lead.

Each class will have a warm-up, personal exploration, and time to witness and be witnessed. We will move a lot. All aspects will be supported and guided, organized around thematic material. Open to anyone intrigued.

Altars of Reconciliation.

Altar- an elevated place, a doorway, a place to for intentional release or sacrifice.

Reconcile-to bring into agreement or harmony, to make peace with, to envelope with compassion, accept, a softening.

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 12th. 2-5. $25 suggested. 8 ppl max, pre-registration required. Email tracy@tracybroyles.com to register.

In this introductory workshop we will begin by heightening our somatic awareness through simple meditation and movement exercises. We will then investigate a particular area, person, place, idea or thing that has arrived for reconciliation. No need to plan ahead of time what that may be. Through practices, such as drawing, moving, sounding and writing we will explore the energy of this item. Noticing what is ready to honestly reconcile and what is not, accepting the place where the practice takes us, and creating closure  are when our time together ends and provide both closure and tools to work on your own.

Altars of Reconciliations a long-term project that includes movement workshops, dialogue, writing, installation, and performance.

FREE Intro to S.E.A.

FREE Intro to S.E.A.Introduction to Somatic Energy Alignment (S.E.A.) 

Our bodies are housed in a greater matrix of energy which includes our emotions, beliefs and intentions.  As we develop we learn to hold or release our breath, body, and awareness according to our own life circumstances and what is needed for survival. Often a movement, impulse, thought or emotion gets trapped in the physical body, over time becoming compressed and blocked, and eventually creating discomfort, pain or illness.  Through physical activation and release, we move towards freedom, power and a balanced energy system; discharging areas that are bound or stuck and charging areas that are undernourished.  

In the S.E.A. practice:  --we start with where we are currently--focus on breath, somatic awareness, and movement- both spontaneous and lead--experience the sensation of consciousness and engage in pulling energy though the system by contracting and releasing tissue.  --feel energy flow in the body, tensions release, and overwrought emotions and thoughts lose their grip,  ---restore your own unique harmonic balance.

In our FREE INTRODUCTORY group sessions, I will offer cognitive information on the approach and influences of S.E.A., an experiential movement component, and check in time afterwards with tea and cookies.  ALL through the fall. 

September 27th and October 25th. 2-3:30 pm and November 15th 10-11:30 am Pearl Pilates Studio. 1211 NW Glisan, Suite 207 Portland, Oregon 97209
