Dancing with Unconscious Part 1 in Bristol

Sunday, September 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

£30 - £40

Dancing with the Unconscious is a series of four workshops in Bristol aimed at making the unconscious conscious through dance, to integrate what is found and become less subject to the effects of what lies hidden in the shadows.

After claiming the existence of three layers of the unconscious mind – of the vital unconscious in addition to Freud’s personal unconscious and Jung’s collective unconscious -, the father of Biodanza introduced us to the numinous unconscious.

It is with great delight that I invite you to this series of workshops, each designed to help you dive deeper into your unconscious mind, one layer at a time…

In September we will activate the vital unconscious, the intelligent self-organising process which fuels our cells´desire to live, and according to which our cells ‘know’ how to carry out their vital functions to keep us healthy and alive. The body is amazing but it needs our help too, especially during difficult times, which tend to depress our immune system. R. Toro believed that we could counteract the negative impact of internal and external stressors with revitalising vivencias, which is what this workshop is all about, i.e. boosting the energies that keep us well and alive through the power of joy and inner harmony.

I am inviting you to boost your mood with an injection of joy – the joy of rhythm, playfulness, motor integration, and of the sense of peacefulness that arises from being in the flow. Fluidity is key to our health and wellbeing. When practised regularly, these dance-movement exercises will leave you with a vibrant sense of aliveness and increased levels of energy, drive, and zest for life.

Do bring a snack or something simple to share during the lunch break (1pm). We are a friendly bunch and would love you to join us.

If you have any friends who would like to try Biodanza but feel reluctant to commit 5 hours to something they´re not sure they will like, 1st timers and beginners are welcome to only attend the first session (11am-1pm) for half price and stay for shared lunch if they so wish. The same applies to those with health issues which would make it difficult to do the full workshop.


Super early-bird: £30 until 1st Sept
