Sanctuary - Corfu Retreat
8. - 15. October 2022
Buddha Hall Corfu, Arillas, Magoulades, GR
Soul Motion Workshop with Edgar Spieker
There are places that help us to remind ourselves of our wholeness. Sometimes we call them "holy places". It is not without reason that the word "holy" comes from "whole", "complete".
In such places, we often take off our shoes, a symbol of respect and courage to be vulnerable for who we are as human beings. Often something special happens there, we feel more connected to ourselves and to life itself. We see more clearly what is really important to us. The feeling of incompleteness disappears.
These holy places can be anywhere. For some of us, taking off your shoes on the beach is like stepping into a special space. For others, the dance room is a place where something miraculous happens. All these experiences can lead us to the realization that ultimately every place our feet touch is a sacred place, a place where we can feel "whole".
Join us on the wonderful island of Corfu exploring holy spaces. The first and most important is our internal space, our body and its sensations and impulses. This is a space we will return to over and over again. When we open our eyes we recognize that we are not alone but united in this experience. When we lift our gaze we see the wonderful warm Mediterranean Sea right in front of us. We dance in a space which many experience as a „holy“ place as soon as they enter: the Buddha Hall in Arillas/Magoulades.
Our dance space is the „Buddha Hall“, a beautiful studio with wooden floor and stunning vista over the mountains of the island. It is located just a few minutes from the beach village Arillas. Most participants will stay in the small and comfortable hotel „Bardis“. The hotel is located almost directly at the beach and it is reserved exclusively for us.
This week is open to everybody, whether you are an experienced Soul Motion dancer or completely new to this dance meditation practice.
