vulnerability and strength
When our vulnerability has been hurt through harshness and traumatic bonding, we have experienced it as weakness and helplessness. In adaption we learned to develop a false strength rooted in control, being armored and protected. The false strength separates us from ourselves and from connecting to others. To meet the world with all its possibilities we need to open ourselves and rediscover our true inner strength.
In the Hara, the “source of life” in the belly, you can connect to your inner strength rooted in relaxation and openness. Instead of being rigid and hard you can be strong and vulnerable at the same time.
In this workshop we want to rediscover the trust in flowing and letting go through hara centering, hara breathing and the spontaneous movement of Katsugen Undo by yourself and with partners in the group.
“As your strength grows so will your vulnerability; as your vulnerability grows so will your strength. At the highest peak of strength one is like a child…delicate, like a rose flower. It looks paradoxical but that is how it is. That’s what Lao Tzu means when he says to become waterlike, not rocklike, because water is strong yet vulnerable.”
