Creativity is a force of our nature, as natural as breathing. We each possess a license to create that is irrevocable. It points us towards our essential nature, which is vast, unique, and universal.

Art in Motion (AIM) is an Open Floor special focus program and a collection of workshops and on-going groups that blend our movement resources with writing, theatre, and visual art-making. Sometimes all four disciplines are incorporated to access our creative intelligence and illuminate the artist within.

 

“For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase ‘the play of ideas’ and think that they need to knuckle down and work more. Often, the reverse is true. They need to play.” Julia Cameron

 

Whenever we dance, we build the muscles of creative intelligence. Just like emotional intelligence, fostering creativity offers profound skills for navigating our day-to-day relational world. It inevitably leads towards intimacy, raw aliveness, authenticity, vulnerability, presence and sudden attacks of transcendence.

Open Floor Art In Motion programs are open to all. No previous experience needed, movers, artists, seekers and creatives of all kinds are welcome.

 

Once a month, in my studio in Berlin, I’m organizing a meeting called The Empty Space for Creative Possibilities. This event is based on the donation and the purpose is to meet together and create from the present moment. If you want to get notified sign up for my Art in Motion events HERE. The Empty Space can hold only 8 people.

Dec 12 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Somatische Akademie Berlin
( The workshop has been postponed to another possible date due to COVID regulations.   “For millions of years, before you arrived here, the dream of your individuality was carefully prepared. You were sent to a shape of destiny in which you would be able to express the special gift you bring to the world. Sometimes this gift may involve suffering and pain that can neither be accounted for nor explained. There is a unique destiny for each person. Each one of us has something to do here that can be done by no one else. If someone else could fulfill your destiny, then they would be in your place, and you would not be here. It is in the depths of your life that you will discover the invisible necessity that has brought you here. When you begin to decipher this, your gift and giftedness come alive.” Anam Cara, John O’Donohue   During this one day workshop using the power of movement meditation and visual art expression, we will try to see the place that neither space nor time nor flesh can touch. We will try to touch the eternal place within us., a gift that each of us has long received. We need to go there often —to be nourished, strengthened, and renewed No steps to learn, no experience or skill is required, either in movement practice or artistic expression. Bring your spirit. Come as you are.   Register here   Price: Early bird price: 95 euro if paid fully till November 30st, 2020 Normal price: 120 euro Price includes art materials, snacks, and drinks.
