This workshop brings together opposite ways of thinking-Shiva’s form and Jung’s inclusiveness and curiosity about the world.
This will be an exciting day using creativity and dance to explore the struggle to understand oneself better outside the social restrictions to be under one label or box in terms of gender, sexuality, race and culture.
It will also explore the idea of the interchangeability between masculine and feminine. Shiva for eg, took a form called Ardhnareshwar (half man/woman). Jung on the other hand, explored the concept of masculine and feminine in more depth and sensitivity than any psychologist of the time.
Through a lively atmosphere which contains a live dance element, the workshop hopes to release some of the repressed vitality in our dissociated/split off ‘avatars’. The dancer will be Kali Chadrasegaram.
