You will experience how your body can bring awareness and certainty.
Your agreement between yourself and your world will take form.
Slowly, methodically, you will build a world of relationality.
Your sense of serving a future will emerge.

Tossie's research in creativity, movement, artistic processes and thought processes asks:

What OPEN wisdoms are people already
experiencing in rapidly transforming times
that would be helpful to articulate in
language and body?

How we understand the world
– only with our mind –
may no longer be useful.

The keywords to an event that covers ecology, movement, mental health, futures... are endless. You will be accommodated into the balance and depth of movement and artistic experiences without exception or required background. However, an interest to learn how to become for a future to be understood, felt and embodied would be most helpful to launch you into a most exciting exploration over three days.

You will embody alchemical resources for future learning
through movement and sacred geometry
