As part of the Beacons programme at Caustic Coastal artist Renata Minoldo presents ‘Studies for Self Knowledge’.
During this workshop we will explore ourselves through sensorial exercises, evoking memories, feelings and emotions. We will work from the inside to the outside, trying to recognise how we perceive our physical and spiritual body and how we inhabit it. We will explore the relationship with others through simple movements, since when we understand how we approach this relationship we also understand ourselves better.
Please prepare yourself for the workshop by eating nourishing food and if possible, drinking only water during at least two days before it. Bring a personal object you will are happy to give away as a present.
Bring a blanket, a water bottle and a yoga mat if you have one. Please wear comfy clothes.
Studies for Self Knowledge is open to anyone who is willing to explore some of these concepts no matter what their background or experience is. All welcome!
It will last three hours with a 10 minute break. Healthy snacks will be provided.
Come along and bring friends!
20 places available, free – please book through eventbrite
