Embodiment Circle Glasgow
Sun 16 February 2020
Embodiment Circle Glasgow is a peer embodiment group, which meets once a month to share, connect and learn. Every circle starts with a short meditation and arrival movement followed by sharing in the circle and sometimes small groups.
The content of circles varies month to month depending on the guest teacher. Previous circles have explored Somatic Movement, The Wheel of Consent, Contact Improvisation, The Feldenkrais Method/Bodythink Process, Yoga and The Axis Syllabus.
Open to anyone with an interest in or experience of embodiment.
Taking time to slow down the pace of life and experience what is happening in the present moment, we will use this time to cultivate a deep listening of the body, using the expansion and contraction of the breath to find movement, stillness, energy and restoration. Using guided movement explorations, individually and in pairs, listening and responding with movement to the breath. Inviting the body to breath fully and with awareness restores vitality and health back to the body, and helps to encourage a fuller, calmer sense of well-being. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing and bring a blanket and water and any writing materials.

Embodiment Circle Glasgow is part of a network of accessible face-to-face groups to connect and support those passionate about embodiment. Their primary purpose is to build a sense of togetherness between practitioners of all the different embodied arts and to build community. Their vision is a more embodied world ― and therefore a wiser and a kinder world.
