Embodied Movement Retreat

18, 19, 20 september 2020

Melissa Ransdorp & Lotte Willemsma

Roodeschool – Groningen

‘share the space with us to play with movement’

During this weekend Melissa and Lotte will come to Kura Waka to share their experience and knowledge in breathwork, somatic movement, (active)meditation, contact improvisation, authentic movement, ecstatic dance and everything in between. 

On Saturday there will be a sweat lodge ceremony guided by Michaela, based on the Chippewa-Cree tradition, which has been passed on to her by the Native Elder Ron Evans.

We will play, create experiences, explore our bodies, dive into the unknown, share the space with each other to learn new ways of moving and be guided by our true self and the people and nature around us. 

For Lotte, dance is a way to express what lives inside her, a way to make contact with herself and others. This connection with dance was reason for her to train at the dance academy and to specialize more in dance and movement therapy afterwards. With all the knowledge that she gained from other workshops in the past years, she will bring a lot of energy and joy with her this the weekend, which she will combine with a deep grounding in her work and movements. 

Melissa was already dancing before she could walk. Dancing and movement have been her way to explore herself and the world around here. With extensive training in different styles of yoga and meditation, she combines movement and breath and explores the language of the body and the awareness of the mind. Melissa will take you on a journey with a lot of enthusiasm and playfulness and will guide you towards a deeper connection with yourself.
