Nordic Continuum are excited to announce
Nordic Continuum Programme and Mentoring Opportunity
– in Scandinavia, beginning early Spring 2020.
We have pleasure in offering six residential retreats in Denmark, Norway and Sweden to support those drawn to deepen this moving practice, and to experience the mysterious and intelligent landscape of the body and its healing effects.
The retreats are open to anyone who wants to connect more deeply to what it means to be human, and is particularly attractive for somatic professionals, therapists, teachers, creatives, leaders, innovators, etc.
These retreats enable us to spend extended periods of time in silent inquiry, where we can deepen and thus move beyond our usual habits and patterning, including that of time.
Listening to and honoring our own impulses, discovering our own rhythms, as opposed to being bound by our daily routines and patterning, we can begin to explore what is beyond the constraints of time.
The use of breath, sound, subtly dynamic movement stimulation, and a receptive, sensory state of attention, allows us to notice movement impulses that arise from within.
By consciously allowing these movements, we support complex, self-regulatory processes that are often accompanied by mental and emotional clarity, a sense of nourishment, connection and safety often described as “coming home”.
We shift our conventional, rational orientation from linear thinking to a more multi-directional embodied state of body-mind thinking, that can feel pleasurable and connect us to more wholeness and wisdom.
Continuum can support our ability:
- to be empathic and relational
- to be clear and decisive
- to awaken creativity, innovation and play
- to be sensual and receptive
- to be vital and persevering
- to self-regulate and realign
- to be autonomous and socially aware
- to process and reflect
- to be open and resilient
Each retreat will include an extended silent dive with 1 – 2 days of silence and an “all nightery”, once the group is adequately settled and the sequences taught have been established.
Nordic Continuum Retreats are open to those who have had a minimum of 5 days experience with Continuum, and who are ready to dive deeper. If you are drawn to join us but don’t meet the criteria of a minimum of 5 days experience, please view our individual schedules by visiting our websites.
If your intention is just to continue deepening and healing, you are welcome to join as many of the retreats as you wish.
All retreats are taught by Tone, Ameyo and Jeanne
Nordic Continuum Modules and Details
MODULE 1 – OPENING TO FLOW
Our body contains varying levels of fluid found within the tissues, blood, cells, bones, spinal fluids etc. Like the oceans and our planet, we too resonate in the fluid movement of Life itself. Here we open ourselves to this inter-connective flow and partake consciously in the larger orchestra of Life.
(26th of February – 1st of Martch, 2020, Denmark)
MODULE 2 – GRAVITY AND SPACE
We discover how to adapt and thrive in the relationship to gravity and space. Through the use of sound, breath and movement, we affect the density of tissue and mobility of fluids, opening ourselves to new potential for healing and vitality.
(29th of June – 5th of July, 2020, Sweden)
MODULE 3 – CELL LIFE AND VITALITY
Inquiring into our vitality, we enter into a deep sensory exploration of our cellular make-up. We sense into how this is all connected, how each and every cell exists in its own right yet is deeply connected and woven into the fabric of life. We fill ourselves with the delight of the life force that we are part of.
(25th of November – 29th of November, 2020, Norway)
MODULE 4 – THE SONG OF THE HEART
Here we explore the resonance and rhythm of the heart, the beat of its inner song to the outside world, and the call of the heart to connect. We listen, sense, feel, move and express the song of the heart beyond our cultural definitions and open into Essence.
(3rd of March – 7th of March, 2021, Denmark)
MODULE 5 – HEAD TO TAIL
Tracing the River of Life that flows through us, we notice and reflect on the shape of this inner tide of fluid as it undulates through our mid-line and our spine. We listen to the ebb and flow of the spinal fluid as it encompasses, and offers forth, the creative power of our life energy.
(28th of June – 4th of July, 2021, Sweden)
MODULE 6 – THE FUTURE BODY
What is the body capable of? What is the potential if not trapped in and defined by our Cultural Anatomy? As all living beings, we all carry the seed of our emerging future. As we open ourselves into remembering our fluid origins and reconnect to the ancient river that flows through all life, we can open ourselves with intent and awareness to participate more freely in our daily life.
(13th of November – 21st of November, 2021, Norway)
Wish to become a Continuum teacher?
If you are interested in teaching Continuum in the future, these retreats will provide some of the experience to support you in this process.
Continuum teachers from all over the world came together in 2014 to create a new Continuum Teachers Association (CTA), which will accept new teachers. Our program is designed in alignment with CTA guidelines. Our teacher training will also include further group and individual mentoring sessions, online or in person. For either please reach out to Ameyo, Jeanne or Tone by using the contact information provided below.
To book your place and get involved in the Nordic Continuum experience, or if have any questions relating to the retreats or the mentoring and teaching programme, please reach out to us on email. You can also read more about each of us and what we offer individually, via our websites
We look forward to welcoming you on one or more of our retreats or mentoring and teaching programmes.
