The Body as a Central Place in Therapy (EN) Christian Krumb
The body as our vessel, the movement as our vector. Our sensory perceptions are there to help us navigate through the situation, like the ocean around us. What wind brings us? What makes horizon for us? Return to the sensations, through simple and joyful, playful exercises, conscious movement.

About the event
In Gestalt, the body has a central place.
The situation is first of all an embodied experience. And an embodied experience is a sensory experience, a felt experience, an experience of presence, which connects us to the very source of our human condition, of our vulnerability but also of our power: a sense of goodness, a sense of confidence.
Confide to the source, surrender to the source, be faithful to it, and letting it inspire our actions, is the task. Most of the time we are cut from it, in exile. Contacting the source within, and recognizing the confidence that springs from it, this is what we can name "body as a guide".
Often we act from another center: our will, the center of control that wants to be nothing but secure, hates the unknown, and wants to explain and rationalize everything. Guiding us from the embodied source protects us from any tendency to make our body an instrument, to assess, gauge, manage, and take control of the situation in a way that seems acceptable to us. When we are truly connected to the source of self-confidence, our senses open, we act righteously. The challenge is to stay there. There is always a sense of risk.
Confidence is not self-confidence, not certainty. But trust in life. To support us in this journey the body is in a way our vessel, the movement is our vector. Our sensory perceptions are there to help us navigate through the situation, like the ocean around us. What wind brings us ? What makes horizon for us? Perhaps to remember that we, like any human beings we accompany, are often exiles, living cut off from this lively source of confidence. Our work is therefore to reconnect ourselves with it, and show that it is possible.
This is the adventure, the adventure of the field. Embodiment in a living way that prevents us from the traps, the countercurrents, the false pretenses that society imposes on us. From this space of authentic trust allows us to dance with any situation : with life. Returning to the body of sensations, making it our kingdom, allows you to shine and being sovereign, like kings and queens. In the heart of oneself, not separated than in the splendor of the world.
To guide us very concretely: back from exile, to return to the sensations, to the source, through simple and joyful, playful exercices, conscious movement, dance, that will help to embrace all the dimensions of the situation, the body, the spirit and the heart embodied, and create a poem, where everyone has their place, together. As we are.
