WORKSHOP 1: WATER & STRINGS
Your own body of water with Elisa Thorn, harp
Saturday January 9th, 7:30-9pm
Semperviva City Studio
We often stare out at the water as a way to reflect and find serenity in our lives. Whether the ocean, a river, or lake, its vastness both humbles us and encourages us to seek truth. Composed of over fifty percent water, our own physical forms are powerful bodies of water. Dive deeply into your body of water with this fluid and contemplative flow, synchronizing movement and breath with the calming sounds of Elisa’s harp and looping effects.
Water can be heard, felt, seen and tasted.
Water is quick and slow, calm and raging, serene and surging, ripples and waves, liquid and solid, quiet and thundering.
In essence, water can be fluid and delicate but can also wield great power.
Water is yin/feminine in character, its energy is downward, its motion is stillness and conserving. It's representative of intelligence and wisdom, flexibility, softness and pliancy. It is also the element of stillness and rest.
"The heart in thee is the heart of all; not a valve, not a wall, not an intersection is there anywhere in nature, but one blood rolls uninterruptedly an endless circulation through all, as the water of the globe is all one Sea, and truly seen, its tide is one." - Emerson
We are water, so dive in, go deep and float on the everlasting current.
