Do you already know what WATSU is ?
It was created on the basis of zen shiatsu, by Therapist Harold Dull, in the early 1980s. The one receiving this therapy is continuously supported by the arms of a therapist and by water, being rocked, stretched and guided in and by the currents. The water, heated to body temperature warmth, dissolves tension in the muscles, mind and soul, promoting deep relaxation. Both patient and therapist benefit from this practice.
We'll gather to dance and dance and DANCE IN WATER through LIQUID COSMOS somatic principles, in Liquid Zome magical autum light and water. It applies body-mind-centering principles in movement, touch, presence and awarness in water.
So, like an aquatic ostheopathy it gives tools to get to know and experience the body, layer by layer, and move the self, the other & with the other from subtlety & consciousness.
