Tribute to our HANDS - 10h45

Tribute to our HANDS

Join us for this artistic expression of gratitude for our hands. 

There are many ways in which we use our hands – work, play, communicate, create, take care of ourselves and others. Our hands are an extension of our hearts, putting into practice that which comes directly from our intention. We live our lives through our hands – let’s celebrate and appreciate their essence!

DANCING TARA - 10h45

DANCING TARA - Danza Duende's Workshop

Known as the “Mother of the World”, Tara is the most important female deity in Tibet, but also in many other Asian countries under other manifestations. She is the union of wisdom and compassion and is considered the mother of all Buddhas, the savior, liberator and guiding star of the paths.

In the world of flamenco, more precisely in the gypsy milieu, it is popularly said of an artist who manifests an irresistible magic, that «tiene Duende!». Danza Duende emerges as a reflection on this experience in daily life. It is learning in all aspects of our life, which allows us to appreciate and elevate our existence through Dance. It leads us to discover the art of being just as we are and to become aware of the intrinsic potential of our passionate and free nature.

 

Facilitadora: Mónica Roncon

I believe that art is a privileged vehicle for self-knowledge, transformation, healing and expansion of consciousness. Certified in Danza Duende, I started my journey with flamenco and Spanish classical ballet. Later, I continued with the contemporary movement, oriental dance, yoga, martial arts, music and percussion, among others, having devoted much of my journey to investigating European Gypsy dances. A Tibetan meditation student, I consider myself an eternal apprentice, continuing to train with Yumma Mudra and choreosopher  dancer Michel Raji, heir to the Sufi lineage of the Derqawiyya tradition, whose work is based on research into the ritualization of breath as a way of knowledge.

Compost Capitalism, Fertilize our Creativity - 15h

Compost Capitalism, Fertilize our Creativity

We are all creative beings with vibrant inner lives. But the pressures of surviving within the capitalist system often shuts us down, and the values of its worldview can disconnect us from our own true nature.

In this workshop, we will explore how capitalism impacts our creativity and playfully explore how we can, like microorganisms in the compost cycle, follow our inner calling to break down the dominant systems into a nutritious soil that will nourish our spirit.

 

Facilitadora: Roshnii Rose

Roshnii is a mother, writer, artist, songstress and certified mentor. She combines her passions for creativity and personal and social transformation in her role as arts and communications at non-profit, Systems Change Alliance.

WHEEL LIFE - 10h45

WHEEL LIFE - Gipsy Duende Workshop

At the center of the Gypsy flag is a sixteen-spoke wheel or tchakra, which represents the Indian origin of the Gypsies, as a similar wheel is depicted on the flag of India. The wheel represents not only movement but also the fire from which all creation emerged at the beginning of time.

In this workshop we will get closer to some of the most characteristic rhythms and steps of gypsy dances from Transylvania, southern Romania and Russia and Central Europe. From instinct to heart, from root to sky, we will explore different dynamics, games and sequences, creating our own journey. From slow to fast, from all to nothing, we will celebrate, in presence and poetry, the constant changes of speed, rhythm and direction of life, returning again and again to zero point, as if no sensation or emotion should last. In this carousel of wind and fire, there is no time for not being.
