Heart of Brothers - Mens ongoing Group - Nantes

 Why dance within a group of men?

What difference could this make?

How might this change reach beyond just us?

If you are interested in these questions then read on.....

This on-going embodied journey is an invitation for brothers to get real, to free ourselves from posturing, performing and overdoing.  Creating space to be fully present in the complex dance of life.  This process over 7 months will help us to go deep into the work at hand.

An opportunity to be authentic, dare to be vulnerable and dive deeper into our capacity to connect.  Through this, we learn how to expand our awareness of those around us, the communities we interact with and the world at large.

We will gather for 3 intensive weekends with the support of the dance.  Aligning body, heart and mind to connect to our unique essence, discover our purpose, own our place in community and take responsibility for what we can.

This process takes place in direct relation to the Women's on-going group led by Virginie Rastello on the same weekends.  During the last session the men and women will come together to share and explore how we can change the stories of seperation, confusion and struggle in this realm.

We will be guided by a variety of Movement Medicine maps and Johanna Macys work that Reconnects.  Exploring the archetypes of the child, teenager, warrior, lover, father and elder.  We will also have time for personal reflection and to gather in smaller support groups.

Ben Yeger is a Drama Therapist and highly experienced group facilitator.  He has studied with Ya'Acov & Susannah Darling Khan since 2000 and intergrates the work of Joanna Macy into his facilitation.  Ben is the Director of Moving Conflicts working creatively to transform conflict.  He has many years experience or working with men and fathers.

"Ben has a courageous commitment to inner and outer change and healing.  We are delighted to include him as a faculty member' Ya'Acov & Susannah

Movement Medicine weaves together the exhilaration of free dance with the depth of movement meditation and the spirit of shamanic practice.  Participation in the workshop counts as faculty hours towards School of Movement Medicine apprenticeship and training.  See schoolofmovementmedicine.com

No prior dance or movement experience is required - simply your attention and willingness to turn up and be present in the moment.
