A Six-Week Tensegrity Series
“…along with the other animals, the stones, the trees, and the clouds, we ourselves are characters within a huge story that is visibly unfolding all around us, participants within the vast imagination, or Dreaming, of the world.” David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous
The Shamans of Ancient Mexico were purported to be able to transform into animals, birds, rocks and rivers… Whether they literally transformed their physical bodies or they transmuted their states of consciousness into that of other entities, we may never know…
What we do know is that through practising Magical Passes – movements of body and breath handed down from these Shamans – we can shift our perception and inhabit the world of other beings within the natural environment.
These Magical Passes were not invented per se, but appeared to the Shamans in states of Heightened Awareness.
During this six-week series, we will learn two ‘long forms’ of Magical Passes, which generate for the practitioner the energy of other beings who inhabit the earth alongside us.
The first will be the Butterfly, adapted from a form which was shown in the early Tensegrity videos. The second is a form known as The Dreaming Awake Tree Form.
Both sets of movements take us beyond our everyday perception and allow us to enter the world of the Butterfly and the Tree; perhaps feeling into the space beyond all of us sentient beings…. the vast Unknown of Infinity.
This is a series of six classes, taking place on:
Wednesday 3, 10, 17, 31 August, 7, 14 September, 7pm – 8.30pm
Please note there is a one-week pause on Wednesday 24 August.
