About Gurdjieff Movements: Sacred Dances
This workshop is non-residential.
Food and Accommodation is optional for a fee.
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.
