OLD DANCES. NEW DANCES
A Residential Week of Dance, Movement Medicine & Being in Nature with Lynn and Gordon
This is our 8th year of an Elemental Movements residential in the Pelion. Sharing our unique mix of dance, Movement Medicine, ritual theatre, mandala making, music & song. Listening to the wisdom of our bodies, being in connection with our creative selves, we’ll move to live and recorded music, spending time outdoors connecting with nature & the land in this beautiful part of Greece.
The week will include preparing for, experiencing & integrating a Vision Quest. From our dances of the present we can look back at our old dances & forward to our new future dances. An ancient ceremony to guide you on your way in life, now that summer’s almost gone.
Our work & play at the Alexandros has the dynamics of a retreat with beach, sky & woods to hold & inspire us. We dance each morning with one longer day. Leaving plenty of time to explore the landscapes & villages, simply resting or taking part in other activities the Alexandros community offers.
There is a beautiful indoor dance space to move on, opening onto a lawn with views of the Mediterranean with fields, woods & mountains. behind.
ELEMENTAL MOVEMENTS has its roots in a series of workshops we run in Northumberland, England linked to the Celtic seasonal festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltain and Lughnasadh. It’s grounded in and inspired by our many years experience of 5 Rhythms Movement Practice, Movement Medicine, Dance & Physical Theatre Performance and Core Shamanism.
