ABOUT THE PROJECT
The idea of this training course originates in other TCs which took place in September 2016 and May 2017 and were centered on a reflection around the body, its place in society and the physical, creative and expressive abilities it possesses, relying on contemporary dance/body language as a tool.
The good results of this TC and the enthusiasm and competences of certain participants and trainers made us want to go further in exploring the relation we have to our body and to our environment.
In a dangerously too artificial society, Mind Your Body, intends to give to European youth workers various tools and bases of reflection to approach mindfulness and to enrich and develop a better relation to our body, to ourselves and by that to other human beings and the outside world.
