About Gurdjieff Movements: Sacred Dances
This workshop is an introduction to the practice of the sacred dances, created by the contemporary mystic, G. I. Gurdjieff. The beautiful and charismatic movements of the dances create a magical feeling inside of you.
Dhyanprem has led this workshop for more than ten years all around the world.
It is possible to stop being a machine, but for that it is necessary first of all to 'know the machine'... When a machine knows itself it is then no longer a machine, not such a machine as it was before. G.I. Gurdjieff
Movements are the best tool for self-observation and enhancing one's level of awareness and presence. Practicing Movements can lead to a better understanding of body, mind and emotions. What Gurdjieff describes as harmonious development of the human being.
It's hard to describe the movements; it is something to be experienced. What I can say from my own experience of the Movements is that they harmonize the three centers:
* the moving center-body,
* the intellectual center-mind, and
* the emotional center-heart.
When these three centers are in tune, I am centered.
I can sense the connection between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, the balance of male-female polarities, the warrior and the Buddha inside.
Non-Residential participation is possible on request. Please contact the Booking Office for more information.
