Concept of Radical Body-Mind-Awareness
My life was always been dedicated to practicing on body and movement, exploring the wisdom of Body and embodiedness, through this way reach and cultivate something more subtle essence – personality, soul, spirit, self, mind or however you wish to call it.
I m deeply interested about how do these methods become a self discovering and revealing practice in a spiritual approach. How can we attain effortless Flow through practice on the Body and bring it to life, deliver it to other people, transform human relationships around us and lift up our environment.
Through years in this way I experienced and worked in many roles like performer artist, dancer, martial artist, monk, studio leader, masseur, teacher and therapist. But the final question is still being investigated: who am I?
