The session will start with a warm-up inspired by relaxation exercises, yoga postures, physical and vocal training - a collective time where we all make our body and mind ready for the journey. Participants will then be invited to present the field they wish to work on, or to introduce their interests so that we can find the most appropriate material to work on. I will come with texts, songs and ideas for the people who might not be sure where to start. My part in this session will be to watch, to allow everyone to go deeper into in the journey without criticism. I will suggest directions, technical advice, images, references that come to my mind in order to give the participant as many possibilities to work within, to build your inner search and give you a ground, and a frame of work.
