ReSource CHRISTCHURCH is a non-residential weekend event travelling Aotearoa offering 2 independent sessions based around the modalities of Open Floor and the Work That Reconnects: a Friday evening 4-elements dance and this full-day workshop.
Learn & practise together tools to create the beautiful community our hearts know is possible, integrating our body, mind and soul's yearning for wholesome change.
We are alive at an extraordinary & challenging moment in time on Earth: Global pandemic, mass extinctions, run-away industrial growth society, racism, inequality, and unstable climate are all happening.
It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can bring positive change for future generations.
There is a deep need to be resourced to navigate these changing times well. This is the work of the Great Turning.
Open Floor and Work That Reconnects (WTR) offer an essential tool kit for living the Great Turning.
Open Floor inspires us to move well with change in our bodies through guided movements.
WTR opens our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world, empowering us to act on behalf of Earth.
Throughout the day we will use experiential practices, poetry, ritual, song, Open Floor movement and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects. These four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe.
No previous experience is necessary, only the love to connect, move and learn. Everybody is welcome.
