BodyfulSpace is an evolving collaboration. A foundation. Inspired by Dr. Christine Caldwell’s work on bodyfulness, we are interested in (re)connecting to our bodies so that we can (re)connect to the Earth.
BodyfulSpace is a vision influenced by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche‘s teachings in “The Development of Ego”:
Fundamentally there is just open space, the basic ground, what we really are.
BodyfulSpace is led by April Joseph. Her own study of contemplative practices and training in poetics drives her dedication to create space to articulate silent voices of the earth/body. This is the space to write free, play and explore/process the earth/body through language.
In BodyfulSpace we can discover the practices and pathways to live awake, experience joy and in turn, learn “what the body knows” to heal ourselves of ancestral wounds (Reggie Ray).
how strange this privilege. the telling of the story may be more important than the story itself. (Akilah Oliver, the she said dialogues: flesh memory)
