Module 1 Continuum Training - Values, Principles and Methods of Practice
Every somatic movement practice encompasses principles and values that guide the methods it embraces. Principles serve as the fundamental truths and foundation for the practice, while values are what is important within the art of the practice.
In this first module of the training we focus our learning on deepening our understanding through practices of breath, sound, movement, touch, and witnessing along with non-verbal creative expression and verbal dialogue; as they express principles on which Continuum is founded:
Learning through self-inquiry,
Attuning to the silent level (non-words) movements of our being,
The human body is a fluid organism in resonance with all life on this planet and with the movements of the cosmos; and
Movement is what we are.
We will also offer our enduring interested and open attention to the values of:
Awakening sensation awareness,
Exploring micro and macro movement expression, developing sequences and layering in service of deepening inquiry,
Developing more language at the descriptive level of our experience,
Slowing down, pausing, and suspending habitual movement, thought, and feeling patterns; and
Opening to the emerging unexpected and discovery of new meaning.
