Physical exercises: No particular ability is needed, but the will to be involved is required (all attendees have to be active). The meditation involves Gurdjieff Movements in a silent journey through the consciousness of the body. Following The Cycle of Nourishing from Chinese Traditional Medicine, blocked energy will be awakened and released. The still sleeping energies of internal organs, of the mind and heart are gently spurred to flow in every part of the body and freely circulate. Once this is achieved the three energy centers (emotional, mental, and visceral) have the possibility to show their power. Through the music of the Gurdjieff dance and the precision of the movements, this new quality of energy begins to reveal a different sense of the body’s form. Repetition gives rise to a ritual dance of meditation. A different geometry, a new whole that can be realized only through the synergy of the group.
