IntuNition

IntuNition Workshop in Nicosia
with dance and performance artist Lia Haraki and
artist/energy worker Evi Haraki Mahera


Being in tune with being
and moving from that reality

If we assume that one can move from intuition rather than any other stimulus, then we would have to open ourselves to the possibility that one already ‘knows’ before actually knowing that he/she knows. This attitude of faith and trust in the way the self manifests the present moment physically and energetically is at the basis of the IntuNition practice.

In the workshop the body will be treated as a vessel of information and undoubted knowledge and will be given the chance to explore its vast universe beyond the limits of form and matter. Participants will have a chance to be introduced to the basic principles of the practice which include meditation techniques, repetitive movement as a tool for transformation, work in nature, rituals of cleansing and opening while a big emphasis will be given to working with the heart body part.
The workshop can be a great tool for stress free living, energy management and balance, raising awareness, dissolving feelings of fear and guilt, opening the creative self through physical activity and embracing individual uniqueness.

 

Workshop themes:
• Attaining and maintaining I AM Presence
• Body Balancing (physical/mental/emotional/spiritual)
• Unity Consciousness (alone/all-one)
• Be moved from within. Recognizing the impulse (working from the heart)
• Repetition-variation-transformation (motion/emotion)
• The voice as a vibrating force

 

Who can participate:
All kinds of individuals of different age, sex, gender, race, profession with a strong interest in movement and curiosity to find connections between the formed and formless self. No previous dance experience is needed.

Kidstuff is about creating artworks that work as positive energy generators directed to children and the child within every human Being.
Evi is a Reiki practitioner and has undergone Children of the Sun- Rites of Passage 2012
Her practice consists of the combination of various disciplines such Arithmology, I AM Avatar Yoga, Breathing Techniques, DNA Codes Activation and other.
She is currently working with light frequencies in order to clear the body (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) of the debris accumulated though unaware living and heal/restore cleared body cells to their original state.
A big part of her healing work includes the mentoring the process of Lia Haraki’s Performance Art project Tune In, which is dealing with tuning into the heart and allowing movement to occur from that frequency. The knowledge of this process is being coached by Lia and Evi in workshops called IntuNition, dealing with how to move from intuition (www.liaharaki.com).
