Contact Improv

Tuesday 11th October 2022

+ every second Tuesday of the month

8:00pm to 10:00pm

 

Join us for this monthly San Jose Contact Improv Jam!

Contact improvisation (CI) is a creative dance form emerging from physical contact between partners. The practice transcends the established boundaries between gymnastics, martial arts, meditation, and dance.

 

In doing contact, dancers directly experience with their partners the dynamic physical forces which affect all movement. The multidimensional nature - physical, emotional, and spiritual - of the point of contact allows the dancers to engage in non-verbal communication in a concrete manner and on several levels

Welcome to all levels!

 

You may show up with or without a partner

Schedule:

8pm to 9pm - Class/Lab with Abby

9pm to 10pm - CI Jam

Facilitator -  Abby Pistoni

Alter Ego

A Ritual Journey to Connect With Your Potential

Sunday 2nd October 2022

10:15am to 12:15pm

 

Who would you be if you let down your walls, lowered the drawbridge and embraced what is “so not you?”

 

Most likely, you’ve had experiences that gave you the impression that there are certain aspects of yourself that are unacceptable, or at least won’t garner you absolute love and adoration.

 

You might see these long-forgotten parts of yourself reflected back to you in the attributes you admire in others, as well as who (or what!) you’re most judgemental and intolerant of…

 

…And what if I told you that when you get lovingly curious about the parts of you that feel most rigid, you release potent energy and break the internal chains that hold you back from becoming MORE YOU.

 

Who would you be if you let down your walls, lowered the drawbridge and embraced what is “so not you?”

 

In this workshop, we’ll be fostering a wildly creative writing space through ritual, movement and harnessing our imagination for healing. 

 

Katelyn will guide you through:

- Simple ritual practices to connect with the parts of you yet unseen

- Therapeutic movement to clear your energy

- Potent questions to uncover and create your Altar Ego

- A guided visual journey to ultimately connect with your Altar Ego and the wisdom they have to share with you. 

 

If you have any questions, please email katelyn@poweringrowth.com
