Abstract of presentation: THE BREATH OF TRANSFORMATION
Breathing means constantly being in touch with the rhythm between taking and leaving, filling and emptying, between being born and dying.
This rhythm, completely unique and unrepeatable, accompanies us throughout our life and when we conclude our last breathing cycle available, it takes us to a new dimension. As long as we are here on Earth, the breath is essential, as it is the most natural and instinctive with which we are all equipped to communicate and to have interchanges with both external and internal environment. Even the “Transformation and Form method” designed by the lecturers, addressing to the human being as a dynamic process in continuum evolution, it is unavoidably influenced by this rhythm. In the report we will illustrate the method and the purpose of the breath in each of its phases.
Abstract of workshop: CREATE SPACE WITH YOUR BREATH. Art and Yoga workshop.
Our workshop proposes a journey between the flow of the breath and the artistic-creative act. What effect does breathing have on the quality of the graphic mark, on the choice of colours, on the expression of a topic, on the way in which we relate to our emotions? We will experiment with various types of breath combined with various artistic techniques accompanied by pranayama exercises, following some stages of the Transformation and Form method.
