ABOUT LISTENING PRACTICES
Founder of Listening Practices, Ama, realized that listening was such a central part of her work in all fields, that it felt meaningful for her to share her different listening practices in the three main areas of this little company: movement, zen coaching and permaculture.
WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES
She offers workshops and classes within the three fields, and you can find info on the ones this year under 'events' or write an email if you want to invite her for your place, retreat or festival.
With a background in contact improvisation dance and vipassana meditation, Ama started up weekly classes where the two were merged together into an moving and still exploration of the present moment alone and in relation to the other in the space. 'Moving meditation- listening with contact improvisation' has evolved since the start and is still a practice in change, although some elements are always there such as guided meditation in stillness, movement explorations where you are invited for different focuses and structures both alone, in duos and groups. Alternating between the still and the moving and often merging into a more open dance exploration in the end. The space is opened and ended with a little circle for the group to connect and have the opportunity to share from the experience if needed or wanted. There is no need for any previous experience in meditation or dance to participate, this is a mixed background practice. Welcome!!
