The aim of this workshop is to expand body awareness, deepen consciousness and unleash internal expression though a response to landscape. This 130 acre site near Mt Arapiles allows participants to move between bush-land, sand dunes, open fields, river and elevated rock, opening up the senses to color, texture, sound and form. Over the weekend, Yumi will introduce various methods of Butoh, Chi/Gravity exercises, breathing methods and encourage a fuller expression and consciousness of well-being.  The body practices, voice work and drawing will act as powerful counterpoints and as opportunities to filter one into the other, strengthening the links between the external environment and the internal landscape.

Kyoko (known as Earth Voice Kyoko) will share simple techniques for grounding body energy and connecting with the inner voice. Anthony will run a session of charcoal drawing that tap into this and the overall energetic build-up over the weekend.
