Mindfulness Walk with Rozalie Hilton
Allow the natural world to conspire to communicate with you. In a light-hearted take on traditional wisdoms we will enter a state of receptivity to the messages reflected by our surroundings.
Are you holding a question or inquiry in which you'd like to gain more insight?
Would you like a takeaway tool, to use anywhere for deeper connection with nature and your own subconscious?
Do you need a break sometimes from the analytical adult mindset, and crave a window for innocence trust and playfulness?
To assume the sentience of nature (or environment) is to give it a power and understanding greater than our own. In this way we can be led on unexpected journeys, find mythic symbols and unlock forgotten aspects of ourselves, and return with stories and answers that we couldn't have reached through conventional thought.
This walk is a chance to become a protagonist in your own imaginative realm and use the universe as a magic mirror - establishing a channel for another kind of language.
Roza established Playfighting UK with inspiration and practices from BDSM, contact improvisation, cuddle parties, martial arts, and her own rambunctiousness, in the hope of creating a regular peer-group and generating interest for more intensive dedicated play weekends. She is a professional facilitator of creative play and interactive arts events. Based mainly in the South West, she devises and delivers bespoke experiences for workshop and retreats. Her tools range from ritual through puppetry, poetry, games, stories, and theatre; but her aim is always to validate and affirm authentic expression. Rozalie has trained in Playfighting with International Bodyplay teachers Frank and Sheila, but has no specific martial arts background and mostly just loves to feel the force of other bodies, engaged in playful dialogue through contact and resistance. Rozalie is currently founding the Playfighting UK network and aims to establish a culture of regular peer arenas.
The 90 minute workshop at Togetherness will be a taster session to learn some basic techniques, have a practice and get you an idea of what to expect from Playfighting experiences.
