MEDITATIVE DRAWING – FOLLOWING THE LINE OF PRESENCE
years ago, I felt the urge of working on a meditation practice that could combine my love of drawing and the need of quieting the mind and just staying present with whatever was happening in the moment. this experience turned out to be revealing of many possibilities, metaphors, and movements contained in the simple act of drawing a line and following its way no matter where it may lead. this workshop comes from my desire to share and experiment with this basic idea. the proposed activities combine drawing and movement practices.
the duration of the workshop depends on the availability of the hosting space and the needs of the public. it is possible to work intensively in one or two days (morning and afternoon with a lunch break) or to divide the work in two or three days with meetings in the mornings or afternoons.
ample work space, reasonably acoustic isolated in order to prevent external interferences and with a floor suitable to movement work. sound systems or loudspeakers are not needed.
the work is directed to both professional performers/students and everyone who wants to develop their expressive potential without professional ambitions. the diversity of participants is most welcome since it makes the work richer.
