Sacred dance & life practices to awaken feminine wisdom
When Spring comes, it is time for the life which has rested dormant in the bosom of the earth during winter, to slowly re-emerge. In harmony with this natural cycle, it is the right moment for us to let our inner world re-awaken & bloom. It is time to vision clearly our intentions toward creation & manifestation.
Fusing contemporary body science, movement energetics, breath work, seed mantras, circle practices for women, ritual, and mystical eastern dance techniques drawn across time and worlds, this healing experience opens the heart, releases the pelvis, strengthens the core, roots the feet and moves the soul. We dance the trance of release, letting go of what we don’t want to hold in the body; we build inner softness & strength; we listen to our inner voice; we take a journey to release all tension & to connect with inner power. Through the therapeutic practices of this work, we have the opportunity to listen inside slowly & deeply, we have the opportunity to open a golden door within to regenerate our internal feminine forces.
In this workshop we are going to explore the delicate balance between emptiness and fullness, nothingness & our highest potential; we reveal hidden layers of our dormant wisdom, awakening the wise woman - the creator of our deepest dreams, and the highest version of who we envision ourselves to be. We receive keys for integrating ourselves as mystical beings in everyday mundane reality - from the outside, we appear the same as always, but reconnecting to our divine source through these unique practices, we receive a map toward deeper freedom & ecstasy.
Through our collective empowerment as women, we support the healing of our selves & mother earth; we send a gentle, powerful whisper to the world which ripples out the possibility for a new earth consciousness amongst humanity.
• Earth practices (slow movements with a focus on deep inner listening & release)
• Movement medicine & energetics, physical training & breath re-patterning
• Contemporary body science & sacred physical geometry
• Sacred feminine teachings & evolutionary circle practices
• Ritual & mystical eastern dance drawn across time & worlds
HOLISTIC DANCE LANGUAGE PRACTICES:

• Reconnect us to our divine source and the wisdom carried within

Barcelona returns as one of the first cities to host World Press Photo, an exhibition showcasing winning photographs from photojournalism awards and global contests in digital storytelling.
This year, the theme of World Press Photo was Stories that Matter. The exhibition highlights the reality of the world we live in, that which is often hidden by the mass media, and shows what it is really like to live in different countries around the world. The photos attempt to portray the real life situation of what is happening around the world.
If last year's exhibition highlighted what it was like to live in Venezuela, this year's theme has been borders, one of those the Mexican border. Barcelona wants to offer visitors an experience that goes beyond just looking at photos, and the educative area of the Photographic Social Vision Foundation offers a varied programme of supplementary activities and guided tours.
There have been 140 winning photos selected from a total of 78,801 photos: entries from 4,738 photographers and international photographers.
The exhibition of winning photos will be set up in the CCB from the 27th of April to the 26th of May. Prices from €5.Find out more »
