In this practice we explore movement as a way to reduce the noise in our systems with the aim of opening access to greater calmness, both in action and at rest, within ourselves and in relation to a group. This practice begins with something like the somatic practice of Authentic Movement and gradually opens into a multi-layered attentional practice that encompasses the individual, collective and more than human worlds.
When the nervous system is quiet then we are better able to think more clearly, to become more emotionally responsive rather than reactive, to tune in to ourselves and our environment better, and to act more decisively and effectively.
Radical Calmness Practice is accessible to anyone. There are no movements to learn. Instead, you will be offered a series of movement tasks to explore while your attention is guided verbally. It can be taken as an artistic and/or political practice, a practice of self- and/or community care, and/or a practice for developing balance and resilience in an ever-changing world.Malcolm Manning
