GURDJIEFF Sacred Movements
Open to all – men and women with and without experience
An awakening, centering and grounding method not much known in the world since it was kept relatively secret for a long time.
Yet it is an extraordinary tool for the development and the harmonization
of the complementary forces within us.

Developed by Gurdjieff, these are unusual and surprising rhythmic movements
set to music that serve to develop greater presence and consciousness.
The goal is not the movements in themselves: the goal is the awakening of the person.
This method brings us constantly to the only reality that is, the present moment.
The multidimensional potential of each person is honored and stimulated,
whatever his or her capabilities or difficulties are at the onset.
It’s a learning process which raises your energetic potential while keeping your feet well grounded on the earth. A pathway opens to the dimension of the sacred which includes body, heart, thought and consciousness.
There are no prerequisites, except for a sincere desire to give all you can as we progressively learn the movements. Each workshop is a strong and profound experience.
