Alchemy Spinning™ Workshop at NunArt, Barcelona

Discover the power of whirling

Join us for an unforgettable experience: a Sufi-inspired Alchemy Spinning Workshop to expand our consciousness and connect with basic human goodness through our fully embodied presence.

Alchemy Spinning™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy spinning makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling available to everybody.

Alchemy Spinning™ combines dance, movement, yoga, breath work, and meditation.

Alchemy Spinning™ is an excellent platform for personal growth, healing, innovation, group facilitation and artistic inspiration.

Experience an expanded state of consciousness

Become more aware, present and embodied

Discover your own true power to heal your life
Unleash your creativity and your artistic expression
Awaken joy, inner peace, and compassion towards self and others

Workshop

For the first two thirds of the workshop we will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras and along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy.  This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

The last third of the workshop we will learn basic whirling techniques and we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to spin at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

No previous dance experience is necessary.

Date: June 27, 2015

Time: 10am-2pm

Venue: NunArt, C/Telègraf,67-71, Barcelona, Spain.

Cost: 35€ early bird if you registered before May 31. 45€ after May 31.

Inviting Transformative Action-Alchemy Spinning Workshop

Join us for an Alchemy Spinning workshop, deep into the heart of the foundational values that inspired Kumu.

Our world is full of compassionate people doing “good work,” and yet the destructive complexity of our society continues to spiral.

For compassionate action to be transformative it needs to be wise and free from any obfuscations of culture, mind, or ego.

This somatic workshop, led by Kumu Innovator Raquel Boluda, will take us on a journey from not-knowing, all the way to transformative action, as we discover our ability to tap directly into basic human goodness through our fully embodied presence.

This consciousness-expanding, somatic workshop uses breathwork, dance, movement, yoga and chakra meditation, building up to the unforgettable experience of Sufi-inspired Alchemy Spinning.

Open to any person of any age and fitness level. No previous dance or spinning experience is necessary
