_About this Course

The art form and social technology Social Presencing Theater (SPT) brings together embodiment and mindfulness with group intelligence, systemic / social change with creative expression. SPT expands perception to a social fabric by directing our consciousness from action to the body and its deep knowledge. Advanced SPT practitioners, Manuela Bosch and Ruth Cross, draw on SPT whilst weaving their own unique inquiries into the mix. 

Manuela Bosch invites us to re-discover the relationship to the non-human beings in our homes, our plants, furniture, and floors… everyone who is there and we feel invited to connect. The experimental awareness and movement practice invites you to discover your love and affection to these co-inhabitants, and to step into an equal relationship with them, filled with love and joy.

Ruth Cross offers a taster of her current research in writing through body awareness (embodied writing). Focusing on spaciousness, observation and intuition, she will guide SPT movement exercises that bring awareness of how deep thinking starts in the body and moves through us onto the paper. We will work between movement and writing, both individually and collectively across the social field.

_For whom is this?

For people with a systemic view on social change, who are open to experiments and self-exploration, for whom embodiment is not a new concept and who enjoy to explore the advantage of doing this online. You do not need to have any previous experience in SPT at all, experienced practitioners we'll be orienting you.

We intent to create an inclusive space. We are welcoming people with different looks and different opinions and expect from everyone to maintain mutual respect.
