Dance of the Sensitive, Movement of Presence Course

A Meditative Dance, a Perceptual Dance, a Transformation Dance,
a Dance of the Being, a Dance of Incarnation

An inner movement art, to link the body to the mind, to connect movement and expression in a context of learning about oneself

The Dance of the Sensitive is a meditation in motion, an inner dance that invites to take care of the sensitive part of life within oneself, offering it the opportunity to come forth. It is defined as the bodily presence born of the inner movement together with the relationship to oneself and to the whole world. It is the expression of the Being throughout gesture.


The Training In Sensitive Dance

A meditative dance

Meet a place of quietness and depth, develop your bodily interiority: this practice invites to touch the depth of oneself, to awaken one's consciousness by connecting with the place where the movement emerges within oneself. A listening to silence attitude, a meditative gesture that deploys presence to the inner movement and links us to the essence.

Development of mindful gestures, of full presence

Develop sensory intelligence of the body, enrich balance, coordination, anchoring and adaptability, develop self-perception:
By practicing sensory movement, a movement based on slowness and the relaxation of tensions, we learn to better feel what is within us. The result is a living bodily anchoring which leads to refining one's perception and sensitivity, acquiring greater stability, developing internal rhythmicity and globality. Raising awareness of the movement within oneself develops gestural mindfulness, self-awareness, ensuring presence and intensity.


Motion in order to heal, to take care of oneself

Experience the therapeutic dimension of movement, the perception of inner motion to deeply meet, gain better self-knowledge, boost vitality, create a more stable bodily reality and more solid psychological ground: by transforming fixed assets into movement, gray areas are illuminated. A harmony between the body and the psyche sets forth, self-confidence grows and the feeling of identity unfolds, the life path is discovered, recognized and assumed.

Motion in order to express oneself, to create, to dare be free, to make the best of one’s life

Expand your gestural skills, explore the foundations of motion and expression to bring a new presence and intensity to gesture: The meditative practice of movement leads to opening the heart and expressing the depth of one's moods through gesture. The conscience of one's inner movement is a source of confidence, freedom, and creativity. When it becomes sensitive, the dance of the inner movement leads to daring to unveil by the use of gestural expression what emerges from one’s depths. By developing our potential for creativity, we will dare to show what inspires us, to open up to a larger life and enrich our way of being towards ourselves and towards the world.

“Receive creative information, let it resonate in the depth of your matter
to find the impetus for the right gesture and live an embodied expression of who you are.”

Perceptual Pedagogy And Danced Expression

Bodily practice is deep and sensitive. It leads to a global and unified perception of the human being.

This approach is based on:

     - Self-experience through motion
     - Presence to oneself, presence to others
     - Developing a deep and authentic expression
     - Self-recognition and learning from own experience

Perceiving the inner movement helps to bridge the gap between therapy and the sacred dimension of motion. This is to depart from the inner dimension to reach creativity. Thus, We access a movement which concerns the essence of the living and the origin of all expression, a movement which is experienced through us, a movement which dances, which makes us luminous and which embodies us.

We create a spiritual dance, an awakening dance, a dance of the being.
