The first offering of the Sound & Silence Gatherings is MOVE, four delicious days of connecting to the body & spirit through dance, yoga & conscious movement-based practices. We have experienced that to express & channel physical energy can have a profound effect on our ability to discover inner silence. Thus, we created this week of offerings to MOVE the body, breath & energy so we can celebrate our journey into the heart, into being.
This gathering was originally created as a dance festival, to gather lovers of dance and to share the dance of life together on the beautiful island of Corfu. After the first successful edition, it has expanded, welcoming all kinds of body movements, yoga and explorations. During these four days, we will explore the physical & non-physical realms through ecstatic dance, dance workshops, dance meditations, yoga, active meditations & more. Though we will include similar elements to the other two gatherings of Sound & Silence, this particular week will focus more on offering conscious movement-based practices to further prepare us for the journey into silence. Teachers, performers, musicians and participants from all over the Globe gather here in paradise to share their passion together as One.
Through MOVE, our vision is to inspire, connect, play and celebrate life. This gathering is the moment where you can sink into your body, breathe deeply and feel. It is the gathering where you can welcome the sunrise with sun salutations and dance away with the sunset. It is a playground for laughter, tears, expression, healing & release.
Starting on the evening of September 2nd, participants will be able to enjoy the following:
- Daily yoga, active meditations or breathwork
- 4 days of different movement-based workshops with incredible teachers
- Dance performances & rituals
- Ecstatic dance, dance meditations & movement-related journeys
- Inspiring music journeys & relaxation
Come MOVE the body & mind with inspiring practices, nourish the body with delicious vegetarian food, warm the soul with heart-centered connections & celebrate this magical life with us at Embody Dance & Yoga!
