Identity In Movement
From a political perspective, identity can help oppressed social groups gain more rights and freedom. From a Buddhist perspective, the self doesn’t exist, and our identification with it is the source of our suffering. From a traditional Western psychological perspective, we need to maintain a strong self in order to be happy. I invite you to a communal movement exploration to see which of the above views is in foreground for you at the moment, what parts of your life you identify with, and what is in flux.
Open Floor embodied mindfulness teacher, biologist • From Budapest, Hungary • Studied economics, critical social theory, biology • PhD in Tübingen, Germany, in evolutionary ecology • Dancing, meditating, hiking, cycling, walking, yoga, nature.
I weave critical social theory, evolutionary biology, and an ecological perspective into our shared embodied mindfulness practice, which is usually fun and serious at the same time. With a similarly broad musical palette, I aim to give space for an exploration through movement as diverse as possible.
