Carl Jung states that “Libido is appetite in its natural state” – it is an essential part of our body’s natural expression. Once made conscious and liberated, libido energy is an incredible source for aliveness and
Libido Fundamentals investigates this complex and creative reality by using movement to ground, build, and explore our sexual energy. We embrace a wider definition of Libido as life force, birth place of creativity, vitality, presence, and aliveness. Because sexuality is so often unconsciously acted out or ignored, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, intimate, liberating, and empowering.
Participants can expect to spend each day dancing, in movement exploration, group sharing and inquiry, along with some didactic education. Genital contact is not a part of this workshop. All genders and sexual orientations are welcome. You can come solo or with your partner(s). Prior experience of 12 hours in Open Floor or other Conscious Dance practice required.
