Embodied Creators - Pilot Project
This is the first in a series of experiential workshops exploring embodiment through the creative lens. This is a pilot program exploring a broad range of both traditional and emergent embodiment work for future core NEI programs. Accordingly, the format will be more exploratory than scripted. Plan for a baseline of 2-3 hours/week for the workshops or recordings and exercises.
Meetings and practices will be offered online via Zoom and communications through a dedicated Slack workspace. All sessions will be recorded and available for the duration of the program.
Embodiment is how we are in the world. Our physical bodies, personalities, relationships, professions, everything. The creative lens lets us see ourselves as a work of art and explore a full spectrum of tools and techniques to grow more aware, authentic, healthier, wiser and more capable.
Creating isn’t just about art, it’s the art of bringing our own consciousness and will into form and continually expanding our presence. Creation is both a skill and capacity and can be cultivated with extraordinary results. Join NEI founder Lawrence Kampf and guests for a playful exploration into the depths of your own creative capacity.
Drawing from decades of experience with top level creative working groups, a diverse palette of therapeutic modalities, and programs such as the Embodiment Intensive and Tools for Embodiment, Lawrence will share a full spectrum of exercises and experiences. Plan to explore diverse areas such as Shamanic Art, Yoga, Leadership, Athletics, Theater, Innovation, Somatics, Literature, Energy Medicine, Diet, Architecture, therapeutics and Spiritual Practice. New and seasoned practitioners alike are invited to explore and deepen the collective field of embodied creativity.
Embodied Creators, Cycle 1 - Contact
Here we focus on experiencing our own embodied qualities and developing the foundations of awareness through a Map of the Self project. The program will include exercises and teachings designed to deepen our relationship with ourselves and lay the foundations for authentic and healthy growth. This is primarily an instrument of exploration, emphasis will be on presencing, supported by practices for cultivation.
