Workshop Embodied culture
Embodied culture is rooted in the journey towards cultural transformation, where the values guiding human life are shifting: personal enlivening and purposeful living replace the traditional ideas of success, relationships grow to be mutually aware partnerships, attention to life around and within, balance and respect of differences, and holistic mindset become unifying embodied principles. In the context of contemporary Western society human body is usually looked at from the aesthetic, performative, or health-related angles. In the context of embodied culture human body is an integral part of our intelligence connected to lived life. Body is our perceiving, thinking, feeling, moving, and acting in the world. It’s a process and a totality of our lived experiences. How does the body influence our sense of self, our ability to collaborate with people, and our being in the world? These are the questions we will explore during this workshop.
