Loneliness teaches us
the wonder of a company.
Detachment teaches us
the implacable Love.
Death teaches us
the magic that is Life.
The flower of Truth grows in the opposites
when it becomes fruit
every dual becomes One.
Let's meet once again
in the enchantment of the dances that constantly lead us to explore the opposite qualities within us, starting from our body
naturally looking for a balance in movement.
The opposites in space, in time, in being,
in our actions and in our relationship life,
in a game that leads us towards unity.
We, the teachers of the Association,
once again met with joy,
around a theme that we explored,
uniting our creativity and intuition,
our research and knowledge,
in order to offer a dance path that comes from a group work in spirit sharing and cooperation.
We report this year the special intervention of the psychologist Sara Cattò
who has dedicated her life to the study of "polarities" by developing her own in-depth method in her book "Learning to fall in love" (Xenia, 2009),
as well as creating numerous works of art always dedicated to this theme.
Sara Cattò will tell us something about her research and her art in the "The dance of polarities" conference scheduled for the first evening of Thursday 25 April.
For information on Sara Cattò: www.imparareainnamorarsi.it.
We are also honored to host for the first time the Ensemble Sangineto band
(Caterina and Adriano Sangineto)
one of the best known groups of folk music in the Italian scene that will delight us with the timbre of the harp, the arched psaltery and the bodhran.
Will allow you to dance with live music!
As a place, this year, we chose the Fortuna Resort
in Chianciano Terme, a famous spa-resort
that brightens souls just because of its sweet and green hilly landscape.
A Tuscan country that is worth seeing, where you can stay a few more days to visit the neighboring countries (for example: Montepulciano, Chiusi, Pienza, etc…)
or to dive into the many local thermal waters.
We wait for you with open arms !!!
