Workshop: Conscious Touch
Careful considered physical touch gives us the opportunity to bring back more awareness into our own physical being. Feeling our bodies well we can sense where its real boundaries are, what kind of physical touch we enjoy or which one we don’t. We recognize its warning signals earlier and can react accordingly.
Expanding our sensual knowledge and repertoire will benefit us greatly when we need or want to receive physical touch. It helps us to be more precise and confident in directing others who are getting in contact with us. With appropriate movement, intensity and timing our needs can be met better. The same is true if we found ourselves in the opposite position to give.
Together we will explore different ways of giving and receiving physical touch, what settings support intimacy and what intimacy actually means in a non-sexual environment. Our offering includes fun, simple and short exercises carried out by yourself alone, in pairs and groups. All exercises are suitable for any gender or age group.
