Relate to the World – The creativity of yoga and design
July 22nd – July 28th 2018
All creativity needs awareness of both the object and the subject of creation. As designers, architects or artists we only can tune and fine-tune our works by listening completely open to whatever comes into being in or with our hands as well as in ourselves. The real magic of creative processes only lights up when we enable both these spheres to respond to each other with a maximum of consciousness.
Participants of this workshop are invited to create a three-dimensional project that represents a personal relationship with his or her environment. Within this process, exercises in yoga and design will alter and influence each other, starting with our bodies, moving on to objects and environments, and ending in immaterial gestures.
We are going to realize and use such happenings - in a time and place where nothing is needless and nothing is insufficient - for the sake of ourselves and for everybody. The beauty of such a design is the design process in the very first place. But anything that results from that process will be beautiful as well. And ultimately our designs shall become waves that allow others to swim.
The workshop introduces and practices methods of Kundalini Yoga. It is suitable for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.
