BEING HUMAN is a space to explore what happens when we use verbal & non-verbal expressions to share & be seen in our internal experiences.
Together, we will create a space to explore bodily awareness, improvised art forms & somatic integration for emotional & mental wellbeing.
It is a journey with a focus on the somatic experience to deepen the relationship to the many parts of our Selves and the self we see in Others.
- I will lead us through various solo, partner & group exercises, observing the process of using expression to befriend, accept & more closely be with the depths of our experiences.
EXPECT: play, non-physical intimacy, emotions, creativity & HUMANNESS
This is undisciplined artistry, meaning that it's suitable for any human - whether you engage in dance/theatre/etc as a career or a closet creative that cringes at the thought of being on stage. I'm an "unprofessional artist" myself.
You can make what you want of the experience. You won't be coerced to do anything you don't want to do. So it can be as gentle and softly comfort zone edging as you like. I prefer softness and ease.
"What an amazing experience to be in a space where I felt so safe and comfortable that I could just let myself go.
Lots of revelations, deep thoughts and healing afterwards. I’m still integrating the experience and having shifts that are very noticeable to myself and those around me.
Thank you Georgie for the safe environment where I was able to express myself in such a profound way and for your guidance. I really appreciate it."
~ Lauren D.
"I highly recommend Georgie’s workshop for internal expansion and personal growth!
I received so much clarity and many realisations about myself, things that were keeping me stuck, I gained a whole new level of self-awareness.
The way Georgie facilitates and leads her workshops are incredible.
I felt so comfortable with Georgie and she created a really safe space for growth and self-exploration!
I can only encourage anyone seeking a deeper knowing of self to attend one of Georgie’s workshops. Her technique is extremely unique!"
~ Alex K.
"It was intense yet needed.
Georgie was very gentle and soothing.
The exercises were very hard but so rewarding.
The revelations faced were refreshing.
It's not often you will be faced with deep shadow work in such a gentle yet profound manner.
For the price, it's what some would get in a month of therapy.
Be prepared for intense connection to yourself."
"Initially, I felt uncomfortable expressing my feelings before strangers, but as the day went by, I began to feel at ease.
Since the workshop, I have become more vocal about my feelings.
I think Georgie is an excellent and naturally gifted teacher. Her energy and personality are beautiful. She created a space that felt comfortable and safe."
~ Ewa R.
"The experience pushed me out of my comfort zone.
There were moments when I wanted to hold back, but found power and strength working through the voices of anxiety and sinking into feeling instead.
I released something that I was holding onto emotionally and an epiphany came to me two days later while listening to one of Georgie's meditations."
