Contact Silence End of Summer Retreat 2024 - Linda Bufali intensive - Podere Calcinaia - Siena, Italy

he retreat is designed for people with sufficient experience in contact improvisation who are already familiar with jam and who have the desire to discover or deepen its meditative/ contemplative side.

The Silence
The practice area will always be silent, with some exceptions. In the rest of the retreat area you can talk, but from the beginning of the evening jam we will keep silence in all areas of the retreat until breakfast.

Jam will be the main exploration space. In the evening jam a musician will accompany us.

The Talking Circle
Sitting in the Talking Circle we will listen to what everyone wants to share, if they feel the need. We will get to know each other. It will be interesting to hear words that come from silence....

Nature, Meditation
We will dance, meditate, we will circle together. If you have never meditated, don't worry: the focalizers will give you the indications to better enjoy the experience.

Focalizers are experts with years of practice in
meditation, dance and contact improvisation that
will facilitate the activities, conduct the
workshops and will always be present on the
studio during jams and meditations.

In this retreat we will have a teacher carrying
out an intensive and well defined teaching
program in the afternoon. In this case there will
still be two focalizers to support the practice.
