Every walk, even the one from bed to stove, is a complete journey, a narrative filled with a dizzying variety of events, locations, people, creatures, most of which we overlook. For our bodies, walking is a series of controlled forward falls, a dance of conscious and unconscious choices. How do “I” and where I am affect each other? Why do I begin walking? What do I look (hope) for? What do I see? When (and why) do I choose to end? Who is this “I” choreographing my daily journey(s) and what is this place I am journeying through?

We will meet daily, for a morning hour of body-centered mindfulness practices, somatic play and kinesthetic exploration adaptable to all physical abilities. Over the course of 6 days, participants will be invited to:
• Awaken physical awareness about how they move and some reasons why
• Gather information about the world they create/inhabit when walking
• Share this knowledge through documenting a journey that someone else will recreate

Practicalities:
Location: Psarades
Participants: 6-10
Duration: Ongoing throughout the conference.
Activities:
-Up to 6 morning practices that will include daily awareness assignments to carry with you throughout the rest of the day.
