Migration-Peregrination: BRM December Intensive and Celebration
December 16-22, 2018
The constant need to migrate, to move outside and within oneself, is not only an urgent and vital issue, it is crucial to address and integrate it as a fundamentally human impulse. It is a basic metaphor of transformation – transmutation – transgression, an elemental act that we must preserve and continue promoting, perpetuating from the meaning and purpose of enriching each other in an evolutionary transcultural environment. We must recover the sense of dignity to be exposed. We must assume a humble exchange in two ways: from the complex perspective to be a forced immigrant as well as from the opposite side, to be a welcoming receptor, a human refuge. We must acknowledge the gift and privileged to settle down, and be with the dreaming of the land and the sharing with others a new “cultural landscape.”
Of course, this is beyond the touristic consumption-predator ideology. It is not to interact passively, but to exchange energy, wisdom and love, like bees that pollinate, like whales that favor the regeneration of life in the oceans, to bring to one another our vital substance. We need to regain strength for the coming evolutionary dignity and respectful exchange for our multiple cultures.
I invite you to continue together with that sense of peregrination-migration to Tlalpujahua, Michoacan to transform and heal our wounds when performing ancient practices of ritual and the creative proposal through BRM.
We are at a historic moment to activate the evolution here, there and in every corner of the planet. We have to assume the ancestral memories of pain, humiliation and oppression from our origins to continue healing our wounds, collective and individual, through the most universal means-THE RITUAL EXPRESSION-allowing us to draw from the unconscious new ways to synthesize, purify and manifest through the body. This ritual-sacred-dance holds the greatness of our most critical longings that must surely connect and recover the original freedom-happiness-dreams of our ancestor migrants.
The Intensive will include:
5 days of Intensive Training and Ritual for 8+ hrs/day on the land, outdoor stages and the indoor studio of the BRM Center.
Journeying through and connecting to the surrounding land and unique spaces of Tlalpujahua.
A celebratory montage weaving the offerings of international students, mexican students and the community members of Tlalpujahua.
In these 5 days international and Mexican students will have the special opportunity to work and share in this unique cross-cultural setting. We will engage in the intense, joyful and intimate BRM training to cultivate our energetic capacities, expose and transform our own cultural references, and discover the limits of the body as a means to open the door to the immense and subtle realms within us.
