Please join us this Sunday, April 16th, 2017 for Beauty Breaks: Session 10 | Present Bodies. We will be deepening our connections to movement and mind in the attic space of F4F (2846 W.21st Street Chicago, IL). This session features workshops by: A. M Whitehead and Aaron R. White.
Please join us for tea, snacks and chat at 3pm. Doors close at 3:30pm.
A.M Whitehead presents “Radical Presence”:
This workshop will operate as a movement meditation for Black material. We will consider our bodies as vessels for collective spirit, and we’ll get a little better acquainted with our tools. Part guided meditation, part anatomy and quantum mechanics lecture, part contact improv jam. This workshop is open to all body and ability types, but all participants should come ready to move.
Aaron R. White presents “The Meditative Body”:
In this workshop, we will explore how meditative practices enliven our connection to self. By using guided meditation, dance, and energy channeling, we will become more finely attuned to our physical and energetic vehicles. Through intention and focus, we will discover the hidden power of thought and how it creates our experiences. With movement and our minds, we can connect to the larger part of ourselves: Spirit. Be prepared to re-discover the richness of self with tools you can use beyond this workshop.This is a CO-creative workshop – WE must be the shift that WE wish to perceive.
