"The ground can only be felt while falling is continuously happening"

All humans are endowed with an innate fear of falling, a characteristic so ingrained into our nervous system enough to bind all of us, regardless of culture, ethos, credo, race or age.. As we grow older and as the bodies age, this inescapable fear of falling becomes more expressive and visible, particularly in the gestures and motor functioning of the elderly ones. Nonetheless this inborn fear plays a vital role in sustaining our existence, a primal drive that ensures our survival. A neglectful relationship to falling may imply serious damage or even fatal incidents, therefore the fear of falling is not to be disregarded but ackboweged and treated from all perspectives. It is not possible to approach falling without implying gravity irrevocably. The fear of falling guides us through dangers but also has the power to shape human behaviours, our bodies and minds on its flip-sides. Even though it is difficult to tap the source of the fear, we can easily recognize its side effects revealed through dysfunctional movement patterns that undermine the fullness of human capabilities and potential.

In the Architecture of Falling we will stir the attention inwardly in order to bring the light of awareness into concealed fears. The aim is to sensitise our bodies feelings and emotions by gradually and gently removing those layers of unnecessary blockages that tend to obstruct and undermine a healthy and balanced functioning in gravity. For that, we create a safe environment in which each participant may feel comfortable to welcome the uncomfortable. A fertile ground will provide for the students to have a first hand experience and own realisation of means to resist gravity and falling and how they are potentially harmful when fallen into oblivion. Conversely students will be given the tools and necessary guidance to realise how potentially empowering and liberating it is to function in harmony with gravity and the emotions embedded in that relationship.

Further information about each of the other modules will be shared in a second moment.
