''Embodied Community“ is a 8 day training course, developed by Actions for Change (Ro.) and Teatro Invisibile (It.) that will take place in Italy between the 1st and the 10th of July 2018.
We are opening the call for participants, youth workers, trainers, educators, NGO leaders and workers who are willing to explore and develop their inspiring and effective working actions through somatic approaches and nature based methods, to join us in this journey!
The intentions and the practices of the training course:
The training course will be a space where participants will be guided and invited to be active and authentic, to connect the mind with emotions and body, to take challenges, to explore openness and vulnerability in order to find the real inner strength, to develop their empathy, to cultivate their inspiring and transforming presence in the community.
The methodology adopted for this project, based on non-formal education and experiential learning, is:
- Somatic and kinesthetic learning - holistic based education and body expression;
- Connection with inner and outer nature - seeing nature as an inspiration for our lives;
- Soul based experiences and practices - discovering the inner gifts;
- Creativity expression - cultivating the deep imagination.
The main topics are:
- Vulnerability: connecting with our inner self, beyond daily masks and armors;
- Creativity: encouraging body and mind to explore and express the inner beauty waiting
to be awakened;
- Connection, inclusion and transformation: cultivating empathy and carefulness towards
others and environment, becoming a source of positive transformation for the community.
Venue on top of the mountains:
The training will be hosted at "Centro didattico ambientale Valpore", a rebuild farmhouse in Seren del Grappa. Valpore is a small location, difficult to reach, in the middle of the mountains in the massif of Monte Grappa.

Important note: There is no Wi-Fi in the venue – and phone connection is really poor.
