An Invitation to Participate
Dear community of SPT practitioners,
The 4th edition of the Movalogue is coming closer. During many months of uncertainty the seed of this year's motto Dancing with Earth and its underlying question of How to create nourishing communities? was carefully grown by a group of volunteers during monthly Open Movalogue Calls. After an enriching process of sensing into shadow and light of 'not enough' and 'shining abundance' the Movalogue 2021 plant is now on its way to blossom.
Like in 2020 a hybrid approach will create space for local face-to-face sessions and global online sessions under one umbrella from August 27-29. The unifying core will be a daily 2-3 hour global online meeting where all participants, whether attending in person or virtually, will have the opportunity to connect, practice together, and share what they have learned. The flow of this core program will look like the following:
Friday, August 27: Opening Session (Beginning)
2 hours, 3-5 pm CEST/ 9-11 am EST
coming together, sensing the field, see and be seen
Friday, August 27: Embodiment of the Elements
2 hours, 5:30-7:30 pm CEST/11:30- 13:30 am EST: extra offering held in spanish, with simultaneous translation to english
Native wisdom- (oneness with Earth/elements)
Stuck with 4 elements
Saturday, August 28: Global Open Space (Middle)
3+ hours, 3-6+ pm CEST/9-12+ am EST
all together (1 h) coming together, joint stillness, introduction by Arawana Hayashi
global online 4D mapping (2 h)
open space (2+ h)with different offerings in parallel sessions .The open space will allow SPT practitioners to invite Movalogue participants into dedicated online sessions. The sessions should be based on SPT practices, but might contain experimental elements as well. The Movalogue would be your playground to enhance your online facilitation practice and/or prototype new ideas.
As part of this space we have already an offering coming from Latin America, held in spanish with simultaneous translation to english, called ”The Village of Dreams".
Sunday, August 29: Closing Session (Ending)
2 hours, 3-5 pm CEST/9-11 am EST

(team-)host a local in-person event
like in Quinta Ten Chi, Portugal or at Alanus University, Germany
(team-)host a set of online sessions on a specific topic
like 'Shaping the decade of transformation - How to bring your ideals and values to work?
facilitate an online practice during a global Open Space session
on day 2
support the program in other ways
i.e. as a visual facilitator, tech host, translator, sponsor, ...
